Dinner and a show

Somewhere in Time is the story of a young writer who sacrifices his life in the present to find happiness in the past, where true love awaits him. Young Richard Collier (Christopher Reeve) is approached by an elderly woman who gives him an antique gold watch and who pleads with him to return in time with her. Years later, Richard Collier is overwhelmed by a photograph of a beautiful young woman (Jane Seymour). Another picture of this woman in her later years reveals to him that she is the same woman who had given him the gold watch. Collier then becomes obsessed with returning to 1912 and the beautiful young woman who awaits him there.

Dinner and a show

George Lopez lead a winning cast in this inspiring movie based on an amazing true story.  When four wildly different high schoolers team up to enter a robotic competition against the nation’s top tech colleges, no one believes they have a chance—no one but Fredi (Lopez), their new substitute teacher.  As Fredi challenges his students to be the best they can be, they show him the power of never giving up, in an unforgettable tale that shines with heart, humor and hope.

Dinner is offered by the Friends of Mt. View Library for $5.00.  Reservations required!
