Upcoming events for July:

July 23, 4 p.m.     The Manchurian Candidate Screening And Discussion

The ARTery contributor Joyce Kulhawik will moderate a discussion following a screening of the 1962 classic, “The Manchurian Candidate.”

About The Manchurian Candidate
Raymond Shaw (Laurence Harvey) is a Staff Sergeant in the Korean war serving alongside Major Ben Marco (Frank Sinatra) when their patrol is ambushed by Communist soldiers. Having escaped, the squad returns to the U.S. where Raymond is to receive the Medal of Honor for single-handedly saving the lives of his squad. Marco, however, becomes suspicious of Shaw after his recurring nightmares lead him to believe there is more to the rescue than meets the eye, and launches himself into a world of corruption, politics, intrigue, and brainwashing. Tickets are $20, and include complimentary popcorn.
