Friday Night at the Movies: Bernie


Laura Temple and Andy Wood will present Bernie, a 2011 release starring Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine, and Matthew McConaughey.

Based on a true crime that took place in Carthage, TX in 1996, Black plays the title role of Bernie Tiede, a beloved assistant funeral director in the small town who befriends an elderly millionaire widow who is much unloved in the little community. Roger Ebert said that Jack Black gave one of the performances of the year. "He creates his character out of thin air, it's like nothing he's done before, and it proves that an actor can be a miraculous thing in the right role."

Sign-up now below or in the church office. A suggested donation of $2 will cover popcorn, soft drinks, coffee, and dessert.

Friday Night at the Movies: This Boy's Life

On March 21, we move from the terrific Robert DeNiro comedy viewed in February to an equally compelling DeNiro drama, This Boy’s Life, which also stars Ellen Barkin and a young Leonardo DiCaprio. A 1993 release, the film is a true story based on the dysfunctional relationship between the teen-aged Tobias Wolff, his mother, Rosemary, and his abusive stepfather, Dwight.  

Stan and Maria Clements will be our discussion leaders. The movie starts at 7:30pm. Please sign-up in the church office or using the form below starting March 1. We had a full house in February, so sign-up early to reserve your place, and let the office know if you need to cancel later on; we had a waiting list in February. As usual, popcorn, soft drinks, coffee and dessert are on hand; a $2 donation is suggested.

Friday Night at the Movies: Out of Africa

Out of Africa

November 15th, Movie Night at the "Slowdance Film Festival" continues with the 1985, Sydney Pollack classic Out of Africa. A study of the life of Danish noblewoman and storyteller Karen ('Isak') Dinesen Blixen (played by Meryl Streep), from her marriage and departure for Kenya in 1913 until her return to Denmark in 1931. As she struggles to maintain a coffee farm through various challenges and disasters, and strives to improve relations with the local natives, her marriage of convenience to a titled aristocrat (played by Klaus Maria Brandauer) gradually gives way to an enduring romance with the noted hunter and adventurer Denys Finch Hatton (played by Robert Redford).  Come see the film that won SEVEN Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Director and Best Cinematography (on the Safford Big Screen, wow!) and cemented Meryl Streep's place in acting history!

Since space is limited, please sign up in the church office starting 11/1.      A $2.00 donation is suggested.  Discussion led by Sue Thornquist.
