The Twinberry Theater at the Fort Collins Senior Center is the venue for our next movie playing on Wednesday, April 11th. Doors open at 1:30 pm, the movie starts at 2:00 pm. There will be free popcorn available. Following the movie, a facilitator-led discussion will allow viewers to participate in a dialogue on the film. 

One of Frank Capra’s classic films.  Jeffrey Smith (James Stewart) is an idealist believing strongly in our children’s future.  When he winds up being appointed to the U.S. Senate, he gains the mentorship of Senator Joseph Paine (Claude Rains).  However, Paine is not as noble as his reputation would indicate, and he becomes involved in a scheme to discredit Smith, who wants to build a boys camp where a more lucrative project could go.  Determined to stand up against Paine and his corrupt peers, Smith takes his case to the Senate floor.  Also stars Jean Arthur and Edward Arnold.  2 hrs., 9 min.
