A Star Is Born Movie Marathon
March 22 @ 9:00 am - 4:45 pm
Over its 80-year history, the film A Star Is Born has been remade three times. During this movie marathon, we’ll show these three versions on our large projection screen with surround sound! Join us for one, two or all three showings while enjoying refreshments.
Each iteration of A Star Is Born follows the same general plot: a leading male star discovers a female lead who has yet to make a breakthrough to fame. The pair become romantically involved. His connections in the music industry help jump start her career. While her star rises, his star diminishes due to an addiction to alcohol. Despite similar storylines, each version offers its own flavor.
The schedule for the movie marathon is as follows:
- 9:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.: A Star Is Born featuring Judy Garland and James Mason (1954). We’ll have juice and donuts at this session. Please note that the movie begins an hour before the official opening of the library so we can accommodate a full day of viewing.
- 11:45 a.m. – 2:15 p.m.: A Star Is Born featuring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson (1976) Pizza will be served so you don’t have to break for lunch.

Open to adults only. Please note these are R-rated movies. No registration necessary.
