“Comic Book Movies” is the topic of the Florence Community Library’s monthly movie discussion on Saturday, January 10, at 1:00 pm.  Following the discussion, there is a free showing of one of this genre’s most popular recent films.  

Comic book movies used to be mostly “B” pictures, often made on low budgets and starring second-tier actors.  The past several years has seen this once minor genre rise to reliable blockbuster status.  Movies based on comics have become regular fixtures at movie theaters, boasting major stars and $150 million+ budgets.  

What are some of the reasons for the dominance of comic book films?  Join us in the library programming room for a discussion that includes film clips, review excerpts, and patron input.  Stay after the discussion as we show one of 2014’s most popular comic book films – completely free of charge! 

Popcorn is provided to all.  Patrons are encouraged to bring their own food and soft drink to the show.  There are opportunities to win prizes by completing and returning movie reviews and other activities!
