Do you love film? Do you love discussing films with other cinephiles?

Join us this week as we discuss the film "Guys and Dolls" (1955) with film historian Max Alvarez.

In New York, a gambler is challenged to take a cold female missionary to Havana, but they fall for each other, and the bet has a hidden motive to finance a crap game.

View the film trailer.

Darien Residents can watch the film using our digital offerings on Hoopla.

This program will take place on Zoom. All participants will be emailed the link.
