Conspiracies and paranoia are the focus of the Florence Community Library’s July monthly movie presentation. Join us in the library programming room at 1:00 pm, Saturday, July 11, for a look at the 1970’s paranoid conspiracy thriller, featuring the showing of a major title from the decade – All completely free of charge!
Author Joseph Heller wrote, “Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t after you.” In the 1970’s, a combination of historical events, cultural forces, and changes in film industry standards led to a surge of what are now dubbed “paranoid thrillers.” In a brief, 30-minute discussion, we will take a look at this particular type of suspense film: Why this genre was so popular and how it influenced film and television long after its popularity waned. The discussion will be followed by a showing of an Oscar-winning, fact-based conspiracy thriller. Free popcorn and water are available to all who attend. Patrons are encouraged to bring their own food and soft drink to the show!
