Rehoboth Beach Film Society & RB Library
The Rehoboth Beach Film Society and the Rehoboth Beach Public Library invite film and literary enthusiasts to a special screening of the 1946 film “The Killers,” on Wednesday, February 13 beginning at 4:00 pm, upstairs at the Rehoboth Beach Public Library. Winner of three Edgar Allan Poe Awards, “The Killers,” stars Burt Lancaster, Ava Gardner, and Edmond O’Brien. The screening is part of the monthly “Read a Movie” club, in which members are invited to read a short story in advance of the screening, and then gather to watch the film version and engage in lively discussion about how the film compares to its original inspiration. Nominated for four Academy Awards, this mystery classic will keep you guessing to the finish. Runtime: 103 min, Not rated]
The popular “Read a Movie” club meets on the second Wednesday of every month. Members receive an email link to the short story in advance, and copies of the story are also available at the front desk of the Rehoboth Beach Public Llibrary. After the film is screened, members share thoughts about how well—or not so well—the story was expanded to the big screen.
Membership in “Read a Movie” is free. To sign up, and receive the stories in advance, email Sue Early, Executive Director of the Rehoboth Beach Film Society at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Rehoboth Beach Public Library at (302) 227-8044.
