Let’s face it–some movies are so bad–they are difficult to watch. The cure? Bad Movie Bingo! A game designed to get you through those cheesy one liners, bad ape costumes, car crashes and mullet haircuts. Pearl City Public Library will show a selection of  “bad” movies September, October, December, February, March, April and May–First Tuesday of these months. Come in–get a bingo card you use for the whole series, watch the movies and mark off each time an element (event, character trait, plot point) on the card (bad camera angle, cheap props, overused quips, etc.) appears on the screen, mark it off. First person to get a BINGO! pattern for the series will get a $10 gift card to a local movie theater.

Program schedule is subject to change. Contact the library 10 days in advance to request a sign language interpreter or if special accommodations are needed.
