Library Movie Presentation: October Sky
October 30, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
To celebrate the conclusion of “One Book, One Bristol,” the Bristol Public Library’s community read project, the library will be offering a free showing of October Sky (1999)!
Based on Rocket Boys, Homer Hickam’s classic memoir, October Sky tells the story of Hickam’s childhood in the coalfields of West Virginia. Inspired by the first Sputnik launch, Homer and his friends studied rocketry and science and, one day, hoped to visit the stars. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal as Homer Hickam and Chris Cooper as his father, John Hickam, October Sky is a heartwarming story of what it means to follow your dreams.
The library will kick things off in the J. Henry Kegley Meeting Room at 6:00 p.m. on October 30. Popcorn and water will be available for movie attendees. Everyone is welcome to join, so make sure to drop in at the Bristol Public Library!
Rated PG. 108 minutes.
