Movie: Darkest Hour

The library invites all to the Library February 28th for two free showings of Joe Wright’s Darkest Hour at 1 pm and 6:30 pm.

Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman gives a “towering performance” (Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair) in acclaimed director Joe Wright’s soaring drama Darkest Hour. As Hitler’s forces storm across the European landscape and close in on the United Kingdom, Winston Churchill (Oldman) is elected the new Prime Minister. With his party questioning his every move, and King George VI (Ben Mendelsohn) skeptical of his new political leader, it is up to Churchill to lead his nation and protect them from the most dangerous threat ever seen. Also starring Academy Award nominee Kristin Scott Thomas and Lily James, Darkest Hour is a powerful, inspirational drama. (

The movie is rated PG 13 and runs 125 minutes. All programs are free and open to the public; free popcorn will be provided.

This program is made possible by the Friends of the Library.
