Showcase Cinema: The Bookshop

Dec 12, 2018  |  Showings at 5:00 and 7:00 PM


Join us for the December Showcase Cinema feature: The Bookshop. Tickets $10 each at the door.

Based on Penelope Fitzgerald’s eponymous, Booker Prize nominated novel from 1978, The Bookshop acts as a love letter to literature and the importance of dreams. Florence Green is a young widow who shocks the residents of her rural English town by turning an old, weathered house into a bookshop. She faces vehement opposition from the town. When the battle lines are drawn, the fight moves beyond the shop to touch on the sociopolitical values and class barriers facing the residents of the town in 1950s England.

Rated: G- 1 hour 53 minutes
