Join us this Saturday August 10 when we watch Francis Ford Coppola's epic Vietman War film, Apocalypse Now. Loosely adapting Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, this film's story begins with "a military assassin (Martin Sheen) being ordered up river to find a renegade colonel (Marlon Brando) and terminate him with extreme prejudice. Coppola paints the war as a hallucinatory obscenity, boasting some of the most mesmerizingly powerful set-pieces in film history. Frederic Forrest, Robert Duvall and Dennis Hopper co-star; Oscar-winning cinematography is by Vittorio Storaro."
