Veterans Appreciation: Free Film Showing, Forrest Gump

Doors open at 10:15, the program will begin at 11:00. We will have a very brief introduction and take a moment to recognize our attending veterans before starting the film. There will also be a 15 minute intermission, during the film.

While our veterans are our distinguished guests, all are welcome to this free movie showing! Children under 13 should be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Forrest Gump (1994)
Rating: PG-13
Runtime: 2 hr, 22 min.
Based on the book Forrest Gump by Winston Groom. The film earned countless prestigious awards, including the Academy Award for Best Picutre, Best Actor in a Leading Role, and Best Director. In 2011 it was chosen for preservation by the Library of Congress.

Synopsis (Written by Mark Deming, Rovi)

"Stupid is as stupid does," says Forrest Gump (played by Tom Hanks in an Oscar-winning performance) as he discusses his relative level of intelligence with a stranger while waiting for a bus. Despite his sub-normal IQ, Gump leads a truly charmed life, with a ringside seat for many of the most memorable events of the second half of the 20th century.

Entirely without trying, Forrest teaches Elvis Presley to dance, becomes a football star, meets John F. Kennedy, serves with honor in Vietnam, meets Lyndon Johnson, speaks at an anti-war rally at the Washington Monument, hangs out with the Yippies, defeats the Chinese national team in table tennis, meets Richard Nixon, discovers the break-in at the Watergate, opens a profitable shrimping business, becomes an original investor in Apple Computers, and decides to run back and forth across the country for several years.

Meanwhile, as the remarkable parade of his life goes by, Forrest never forgets Jenny (Robin Wright Penn), the girl he loved as a boy, who makes her own journey through the turbulence of the 1960s and 1970s that is far more troubled than the path Forrest happens upon.

Featured alongside Tom Hanks are Sally Field as Forrest's mother; Gary Sinise as his commanding officer in Vietnam; Mykelti Williamson as his ill-fated Army buddy who is familiar with every recipe that involves shrimp; and the special effects artists whose digital magic place Forrest amidst a remarkable array of historical events and people.

Noir @ The Bar: The Undead Edition

Noir @ the Bar: The Undead Edition

It’s time to get your noir on again! The Madison Public Library will present Noir at the Bar: The Undead Edition, combining 1940’s noir mystery with zombies and vampires. Think of all the great noir detectives who were also zombies or vampires. Well, we can’t think of any either, but that shouldn’t stop you from coming up with a zombie noir costume and coming out for a night of murder, mayhem and music—and zombies and vampires—on the Blue Pants Brewery patio in Madison on Wednesday, October 21st at 7 p.m. Live music will alternate with dramatized stories of undead detectives from local mystery authors, Michael Guillebeau and Kathleen Cosgrove. Buy one of their books (they’re both still alive), and they will sign the book and buy you a beer. Wear an authentic undead noir costume to the speakeasy, and maybe win the prize for most undead noiresque costume. A portion of all beverage sales will go to the Madison Public Library.

We’re going all-out to top our first Noir @ the Bar. We’ve got some funny, dark, weird stuff from Mike and Kathleen, and we’re going to give audience members a chance to join in and change Kathleen’s story as it goes along. We’ll have music and prizes and undead noir trivia contests, and, of course, great beer from Blue Pants Brewery. We’re also going to make this a costume party. We’re giving out prizes for Best Undead Noir Guy, Best Undead Noir Doll, and Best Undead Noir Gang.

So bring a gat and an undead dame to Blue Pants Brewery October 21st. The music starts at 6 and the mystery at 7.
