Blockbuster Movie at Plainville Library
“Hunger Games”, just released as a DVD, will be screened at the Plainville Public Library on Thursday, September 13 at 2:30 as one of the Friends of the Library movie matinee series.
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.
The book that was the basis of the film, “Hunger Games” is the first of three in a series which was on the New York Time bestseller list for many months.
