An Upcoming Event at Centenary

movie night
Centenary Summer Movie:
We are commemorating the 78th anniversary of WWII's Battle of Dundirk and the Battle of Britain with our August movie selection, Mrs. Miniver. This 1943 Academy Award 'Best Picture' takes us into the lives of a very ordinary British family, who are called to do extraordinary tasks in the face of war and the invasion of their homeland. Starring Greer Carson (Academy Award Best Actress for her portrayal) and Walter Pigeon. Mrs. Miniver swept the awards and takes us back in time and the mindset of the "Greatest Generation." Join us on Wednesday, August 15, at 6 p.m. for all the pathos and spirit-lifting drama . . . no war ration tickets required!

Movie DVD Exchange: Have a DVD you have watched too often? Bring it to a Centenary Summer Movie Series showing and exchange it for a different one. Also, if you see a DVD you like on display, take it and leave a donation to RISE AGAINST HUNGER! At the end of our series, any remaining DVDs not exchanged will be donated to the McGuire Veteran Center. It’s a win, win situation!!!
