Cold War on Film at the Florence Library Aug. 13

Come to the Florence Community Library Saturday, August 13 at 1:00 pm, as the library’s August movie discussion focuses on the Cold War and how it has been portrayed on film. The presentation will be followed by the showing of a recent Oscar winning, fact-based thriller!

The Cold War between the democratic West and the Communist-led East started almost as soon as World War II ended, and continued until the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. Lasting for decades, it became a fact of life for generations – and a touchstone for books and movies as well. The Cold War has been the centerpiece of films ranging from historical dramas to spy thrillers to action extravaganzas.

Join us for a discussion of the Cold War and the movies made about it, followed by a recent, Oscar-winning hit film. Popcorn and water will be available free to all who attend. Patrons are also welcome to bring their own food or soft drink to the show.

For more information, or to sign up, please contact the library at (520) 868 – 8311.
