Friday Afternoon at the Movies at the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center: Nov 1, at 1:00pm (note NEW time!)

Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center and Scarecrow Video’s Silver Cinema Project partner to show some of the most beloved classics for all to enjoy again and again.

The Straight Story (1999) is a Disney film starring Richard Farnsworth, who was nominated for an Oscar as Best Actor, and Sissy Spacek. Also staring: Max the Wonder Dog as Farm Dog and Everett McGill as Tom the John Deere Dealer!

The plot is simple: a debilitated elderly man with not much money makes a trek (via his John Deere lawnmower) some 250 miles to see his estranged brother who has suffered recent health problems, in the hopes to make amends. The film runs 1 hour, 52 minutes.

Here's a wonderful article about the film in the Daily Telegraph - How an Old Man and His Lawnmower Made David Lynch Weep - the making of The Straight Story

The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center is located in the southern-most building of the Shoreline Center, 18560 1st Ave NE #1, 206-365-1536. Such a nice way to spend a Fall Friday afternoon with your sweetie or friends! Come, enjoy!
