Adults are invited to join us for our summer movie fest of monthly movies based on popular adult books! No RSVPs are required and light refreshments will be served. Movies will be shown on our 96″ screen, so bring your friends and beat the beat! Adults who attend will each receive on raffle ticket – two if they show their SJCPLS library card – for a copy of the book the monthly movie is based upon! This book is also owned by SJCPLS in print as well as downloadable formats via Overdrive. Thank you to the Friends of the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library for generously sponsoring our Literary Movie Matinees this summer for adults.
This month, the Movie Matinee will be “Death on the Nile,” the 2022 adaptation which is based upon the book of the same name by Agatha Christie. Amazon Summary for “Death on the Nile (2022)” starring Kenneth Branagh: “Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot’s Egyptian vacation aboard a glamorous river steamer turns into a terrifying search for a murderer when a picture-perfect couple’s idyllic honeymoon is tragically cut short. Set against an epic landscape of sweeping desert vistas and the majestic Giza pyramids, this tale of unbridled passion and incapacitating jealousy features a cosmopolitan group of impeccably dressed travelers, and enough wicked twists and turns to leave audiences guessing until the final, shocking denouement. “Death on the Nile” reunites the filmmaking team behind 2017’s global hit “Murder on the Orient Express,” and stars five-time Academy Award nominee Kenneth Branagh as the iconic detective Hercule Poirot. He is joined by an all-star cast of suspects, including: Tom Bateman, four-time Oscar Award nominee Annette Bening, Russell Brand, Ali Fazal, Dawn French, Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Rose Leslie, Emma Mackey, Sophie Okonedo, Jennifer Saunders and Letitia Wright.” Join us!
