Join us Sunday, October 1st for a Words & Film Sunday Matinee showing of "October Sky" at 2 PM.

The 1950s space race inspires four West Virginia teens to begin creating their own rockets in the hopes of getting out of their coal-mining town. October Sky is the true story of Homer Hickam, a coal miner's son who was inspired by the first Sputnik launch to take up rocketry against his father's wishes. 

Based on the Hickam’s biography, this film stars Jake Gyllenhal, Chris Cooper and Laura Dern.

Free admission. Please note this film is rated PG.  For further information please call 570-421-0800x317 or visit www.monroepl.org
