Sound & Vision: 'Harold & Maude'

Friday June 6, 2014: 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

This June’s Sound & Vision film is the 1971 cult classic – "Harold And Maude".

Ranked by Entertainment Weekly as #4 in their list of Top 50 Cult Films and ranked #45 on the American Film Institute (AFI)’s list of the top 100 films in American comedy, this beloved black comedy is the story of a young man (Bud Cort), prone to endlessly stage fake suicides and his romance with Maude, a 79 year-old woman (Ruth Gordon) who he met at a funeral. Their quirky love affair is the foundation for this delightfully dark film , which was surprisingly ranked the ninth best romantic comedy in AFI’s Ten Top Ten"—the best ten films in ten "classic" American film genres.

Join us for a screening and complimentary popcorn.
