After-Hours Film ‘A Walk On the Moon’ to Show at Library

MOUNDSVILLE — The Moundsville-Marshall County Public Library will offer a special after-hours film presentation of “A Walk On the Moon” at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 15.

Regular library operations will close at 6 p.m. but anyone interested in viewing the movie in the library’s lower level may do so. Scheduled to coincide with the anniversary of the famed Woodstock concert, “A Walk On the Moon” is an acclaimed drama-romance that captures much of the atmosphere of the year 1969 when we had the first walk on the moon, Woodstock and the Vietnam war. It tells the story of a young housewife whose world is turned upside down when she has an affair with a free-spirited blouse salesman.

The film stars several of today’s most accomplished actors: Diane Lane, Viggo Mortensen, Liev Schreiber and Anna Paquin. It is directed by Tony Goldwyn and written by Pamela Gray. A 1999 release, it is rated R (under 17 must be accompanied by an adult) and runs for 107 minutes.

This film showing is free and open to the public. Bring your own snacks and seat cushions if desired. Anyone in need of the chair-lift should arrive at least 10 minutes early (before 6 p.m.)

The Moundsville Library is located at the corner of Tomlinson Avenue and Fifth Street in Moundsville. Call 304-845-6911 for more information.
