Watch vintage films in the state-of-the-art Norris Corson Family Planetarium. This week's film is "Our Town" starring William Holden, Martha Scott, & Fay Bainter.

This 1940 film is in adapatation of a play of the same name by Thonton Wilder. For the residents of Grover's Corners, daily life proceeds at a predictable pace. The milkman (Stuart Erwin) arrives like clockwork, the neighbors perpetually gossip about nothing and children contemplate their future. Two of these children, George (William Holden) and Emily (Martha Scott), fall in love as adults and, despite last-minute nerves, get married. Their happiness does not last, however, as Emily dies during the birth of a child. Returning as a ghost, she ponders her existence.

May contain bright lights and loud sounds. Recommended for young adults and adults. Pre Registration preffered but cash will be accepted at the door until sold out. Run Time: 90 Minutes
