Film Clubs: September 2019

Think book club, but with movies instead. And that describes our two newest clubs for film fans. Our next meeting is Tuesday, September 24, where we meet to discuss two films. This month we focus on superheroes, in Classic Reels we will take a look at Superman (1978), the first superhero major motion picture that launched a whole pop culture that has since grown and thrived. Film Club will take a closer look at nullAvengers: Endgame (2019) one of the concluding films of phase 3 in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Film Club meets September 24, at 6:30 p.m., to take a close look at Avengers: Endgame (2019) available on Blu-ray, DVD and the Lucky Day Display found in the Fountaindale Library lobby.

Synopsis: The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured their ranks compels the remaining to take one final stand in the grand conclusion to twenty-two films.

The Classic Reels club meets September 24 at 7:30 p.m. to breakdown and discuss the classic movie: Superman (1978), available on Blu-ray and DVD.


Synopsis: As an infant, Superman is sent to earth from the doomed planet Krypton. As he grows up, he learns he has super powers which he must hide from the ordinary mortals around him. But the time comes when Superman’s powers for good are revealed to the world. Superman battles with super-criminal Lex Luthor and his cohorts as they attempt to destroy California by activating the San Andreas fault.
