February Movie Night: Argo

Feb 21 2013 6:00 pm

The Morris Area Public Library's movie night for February will take place on February 21 at 6:00 p.m.  We will be featuring the movie Argo starring Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, and John Goodman.

When militants seize control of the U.S. embassy in Tehran during the height of the Iranian Revolution, CIA agent Tony Mendez creates a fake Hollywood film production in order to rescue a group of American diplomats who have sought refuge at the home of a Canadian ambassador.  Argo was inspired by actual events. 

This movie is rated R for language and some violent images.  Therefore, you must be at least 18 to register and attend. 

This movie is free and open to all adults.  To register, please call 815-942-6880 or visit the library.  Refreshments will also be available.

Why take the course?

Cars have changed. So have traffic rules, driving conditions,and the roads you travel every day.  Some drivers age 50+ have never looked back since they got their first driver's license, but even the most experienced drivers can benefit from brushing up on their driving skills.

By taking a driver safety course you'll learn the current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques, and how to operate your vehicle more safely in today's increasingly challenging driving environment.

(This is an all day class with a one hour lunch on your own) Registration Required.

$15 for AARP cardholders

$20 for non-AARP cardholders

Checks preferred, payable to AARP Smart Driver Course. Payment due the day of the class.
