Coronado Public Library, in partnership with the Coronado Island Film Festival, presents Film Forum Coronado, taking place the first and third Wednesday of each month at 6 p.m. (new start time!) in the library’s Winn Room, 640 Orange Avenue. Film expert Ralph DeLauro provides a brief introduction to each film and leads a discussion afterwards, often including pointers about how lighting or camera angles contribute to a scene’s mood or propels the story.
Registration is suggested but not required.
On Wednesday, Jan. 5, the film “Fahrenheit 451” (1966, 112 minutes) will be shown. Francois Truffaut’s excursion into Ray Bradbury’s dystopian future where a mechanized society has banned books yields this eerie fable that celebrates the romance of the written word. Co-starring Oskar Werner and Julie Christie.
On Jan. 19, “Hotel Salvation” will be shown and discussed.
