World War II on Film at the Florence Community Library

The Florence Community Library’s May movie discussion focuses on World War II.  Join us in the library programming room Saturday, May 9 at 1:00 pm, for a brief overview of the Second World War on Film.  The discussion is followed by a showing of a major motion picture from last year – All completely free of charge! 

World War II was the defining conflict of the 20th century.  It transformed the U. S. into a global superpower, radically altered the map of Europe and Asia, and directly led to technological and political changes that affect our lives to this day.  All of which explains why it remains an enduring subject for movies 70 years after it ended.  

A 30-minute presentation looks at some of the most significant American and British films centered around World War II, from film classics to popular recent titles.  The discussion is followed by a showing of a major, fact-based movie from last year. Free popcorn, snacks, and water are available to all who attend, and patrons should feel free to bring their own food and soft drink to the show! 

For title information or other questions, please contact the library at (520) 868 – 8311.
