“’80’s Action Movies” is the focus of the Florence Community Library’s Monthly Movie discussion on Saturday, December 12 at 1:00 pm.

The 1980s are often considered the “golden age” of action movies. This decade saw the production of some of the best-remembered and best-loved action movies, from “Aliens” to the “Terminator,” from “Rambo” to “Die Hard.” In a 30-minute presentation, we look at some of the literary and early cinematic influences on this genre, as well as some of the reasons for its rise during the 1980s.
The discussion is followed by a showing of one of the 1980’s most influential action titles. Popcorn and water are made freely available to all who attend. Patrons are also welcome to bring their own food or soft drink to the show.
