Monday Movie of the Month is a new film series at the Bettendorf Public Library. We're launching this program with a six-month series that explores several tried-and-true film genres through pairings of classic and modern films.
Our first genre is the musical, and this month we'll be watching Vincente Minnelli's 1944 classic Meet Me in St. Louis, starring Judy Garland and Margaret O'Brien. Follow a year in the life of the Smith family in early-twentieth-century St. Louis, and hear the Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane songs written for the film that have become standards, including "The Trolley Song" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."
Dates and films for the entire series are as follows:
January 13: Meet Me in St. Louis (1944)
February 10: La La Land (2016)
March 9: The Searchers (1956)
April 13: Unforgiven (1992)
May 11: Double Indemnity (1944)
June 8: Brick (2005)
