Classic Film Club

Third Wednesday of Each Month

movie box

The Wednesday, January 17 Classic Film selection is You Again, a 2010 American comedy film starring Kristen Bell, Odette Annable, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Sigourney Weaver.

Successful PR pro Marni, (Bell), heads home for her older brother's wedding and discovers that he's marrying her high school arch nemesis (Annable), who's conveniently forgotten their problematic past. The bride's jet-setting aunt bursts in and Marni's not-so-jet-setting mom comes face to face with her own high school rival. The claws come out and old wounds are opened in this crazy comedy that proves that not all rivalries are forever.

The Classic Film Club meets in the Beach and Tennis Club upstairs lounge on the third Wednesday of the month except for summer and the holidays. After a friendly pot luck at 11:30 AM, they screen a classic film. So if you're into film with a classic attitude, do come.

This month, bring a dish and RSVP to hostess Connie Dunham at 480-907-5152.
