“Green Book” will be shown on the big screen in the chilren’s room on Sunday, April 14th at 1:30 p.m. The movie is rated PG13. Movie synopsis: When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger-as well as unexpected humanity and humor-they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime. The movie is free. Thank you to River Junction Arts Council for funding the public performance site license.
