April 19th, RPL will host its first Virtual Film Club Zoom. What is Virtual Film Club? Well, it’s a club that meets virtually to discuss films, not a club for virtual films, although that could be interesting. Some films will be edifying; some may be terrifying, and some might be electrifying…ly funny? We’ve selected our first two films.
Our first film? Oscar, starring Sylvester Stallone, Marisa Tomei, and Chazz Palminteri. Can Snaps Provolone go straight to honor his father’s dying wish? Can Antony get the girl? Theresa the guy? And who is the titular Oscar? We’ll discuss this movie on April 19, starting at 6pm.
Our second film is The Poisoner’s Handbook, a PBS special based on the same titled book. It explores the beginnings of forensic chemistry and its use in solving crimes in New York in the 1920s. We’ll discuss this movie on May 17 at 6pm.
You will want to register, so we can email the Zoom access.
