6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Join us for a coming-of-age adventure based off “The Body”, a short story by Steven King. Four friends embark on a journey that will force them into danger and make them grow up.

Rob Reiner’s easygoing nostalgia piece is set in Castle Rock, OR, over Labor Day weekend, 1959. A quartet of boys, inseparable friends all, set out in search of a dead body that one of the boys overhears his brother talking about. The foursome consists of intellectual Gordie (Wil Wheaton), born leader Chris (River Phoenix), emotionally disturbed Teddy (Corey Feldman), and chubby hanger-on Vern (Jerry O’Connell). The boys’ adventures en route to the elusive body are colored by the personal pressures brought to bear on all of them by the adult world.

This film is rated R, movie-goers must be 18 or older. It is free and movie-goers may bring their own snacks and covered non-alcoholic beverages.
