MOVIE | TUESDAY, JULY 13TH, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM | NEWS OF THE WORLD

Five years after the end of the Civil War, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Tom Hanks), a veteran of three wars, now moves from town to town as a non-fiction storyteller, sharing the news of presidents and queens, glorious feuds, devastating catastrophes, and gripping adventures  from the far reaches of the globe. On the plains of Texas, he crosses paths with Johanna (Helena Zengel), a 10-year-old taken in by the Kiowa people six years earlier and raised as one of their own. Johanna, hostile to a world she’s never experienced, is being returned to her biological aunt and uncle against her will. Kidd agrees to deliver the child where the law  says she belongs. As they travel hundreds of miles into the unforgiving wilderness, the two will face tremendous challenges of both human and natural forces as they search for a place that either can call home. 

The Senior Center will be providing a $5.00 meal that we will have while watching the movie. For lunch, we will have egg salad on a croissant, pasta salad, three bean salad, and dessert.  Please call (518) 696-6451 to let us know you are attending.
