6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Before Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper there was Barbara Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. We will be showing A Star is Born (1976), a musical romantic drama.

A rock star on the decline, John Norman Howard (Kris Kristofferson) has given in to drugs and excessive drinking, and his music has suffered as a result. Wandering into a club one night, John watches singer Esther Hoffman (Barbra Streisand) perform and is smitten. The two begin dating, and soon John lets Esther take the spotlight during his concerts. However, even as Esther finds fame and success with her singing, John continues his downward spiral.

This movie is rated R and is intended for adults. Children and teens may attend only if accompanied by an adult. This program is FREE and movie-goers may bring their own snacks and covered non-alcoholic beverages.
