Movie Matinee at the Library

This is the incredible true story of the seven art historians and museum curators who went behind enemy lines during World War II on a mission to recover some of the world's greatest works of art. Determined to prevent 1000 years of culture from going up in flames, American president Franklin D. Roosevelt approves a proposal to form a task force comprised entirely of art experts to enter Germany, recover the works of art, and ensure they are returned to their rightful owners. With little knowledge of modern weapons or warfare tactics, the ragtag squadron has their work cut out for them. Popcorn provided by Friends of the Freeland Library. No registration required.
