First Mondays in the Moorestown Library Meeting Room at 7:30 p.m.
England, 1975, color, 187 minutes
Directed by Stanley Kubrick. With Ryan O'Neal, Marissa Berenson, and Hardy Kruger. This inspired vision of another world, another time, is more than a mere filming of Thackeray's 19th century novel. It is a highly personal attempt at visualizing Lyndon's 18th century world on battlefields, boudoirs, casinos, and vast country estates, all recorded with some of the most articulate cinematography in screen history, a literate scripts, and a score from Handel, Bach, and Mozart.
Time after time
U.S., 1979, color, 112 minutes
Directed by Nicholas Meyer. With Malcolm MacDowell, Mary Steenburgen and David Warner. Engaging premise of H.G. Wells pursuing Jack the Ripper from Victorian England to contemporary America in his time machine. This fanciful tale is bolstered by striking settings and strong performances.

Henry stories featuring separate casts and directors. Narrated by John Steinbeck.
