Over 50 guests, including the DH and I enjoyed a fun and informative evening last month at the Dann and Raymond's Movie Club presentation about Sci-Fi, where we saw clips from such movies as The Man Who Fell to Earth, Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Alien.

Along with the clips, our talented hosts, Dann Gire, movie critic for the Daily Herald newspaper, and Raymond Benson, multi-published mystery/thriller author, quipped and threw in fascinating tidbits about the movies and their makers. I'd never guessed that hiding under the special effects of the Empire Strikes Back was the important theme of loyalty among friends, but Dann and Raymond knew.

This Thursday evening's fascinating topic will be Steven Spielberg and his films. If you're in the area, a free evening of entertainment awaits you starting at 7:30 pm at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library, 500 North Dunton, Arlington Heights, IL 60004.

For more info, call 847-392-0100 or go online at http://www.ahml.info/.

Have you been to any other good presentations at libraries? Or, maybe you'd like to be a film critic and tell us about a movie you loved or hated. Please share.

    That sounds fabulous! I really haven't seen anything that entertaining sounding show up at my local library. If it ever does, I'll be parked on one of those chairs for sure.

  2. I'd thoroughly enjoy that! Love science fiction.

    Sadly, our library almost never has events like this.

    And I'll start a fire of debate - despite box office numbers, Star Trek is a far better franchise than Star Wars!

  3. I've never seen anything like this at my local library either. It sounds like fun and I'd probably attend if I could.
