Friday Flicks


Come to the Library on Fridays each month and see a newly released movie!

This month's movie is The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (PG-13). Here's more about the film:

The Hunger Games saga continues in this sequel that finds a revolution brewing as Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) take a "Victor's Tour" of the districts, and President Snow (Donald Sutherland) plots their downfall during preparations for the Quarter Quell, which only occurs every 25 years in celebration of the Capitol's victory over the districts. Hoping to put an end to the growing threat of rebellion, President Snow announces that the Quell's tributes will be reaped from the existing pool of victors -- guaranteeing Katniss a place in the arena. Though Katniss vows to keep Peeta safe even if it means sacrificing her own life, her fellow tributes have a different plan.

Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, this film has a running time of 146 minutes.
