Movie Night: Dead Poets Society
Saturday, April 04, 2015
7:00 PM - 9:15 PM
Old Town Library, Community Room

In 1959, the Welton Academy is a staid but well-respected prep school where education is a pragmatic and rather dull affair. Several of the students, however, have their thoughts on the learning process (and life itself) changed when a new teacher comes to the school. John Keating is an unconventional educator who tears chapters of his textbooks and asks his students to stand on their desks to see the world from a new angle. Keating introduces his students to poetry, and his free-thinking attitude and the liberating philosophies of the authors he introduces to his class have a profound effect on his students. Run time is 180 min. This film is rated PG, for more information go to imdb.com.
