The Grapes of Wrath in 35mm
Join us for our new monthly series Roxy Book Club! Which is better, the book or the movie? To find out, take the month to read this month’s selection, John Steinbeck's masterpiece The Grapes of Wrath. We’ll have a discussion about the book and its adaptation after the film screening.
The Joad clan is looking for a better life in California. After their drought-ridden farm is seized by the bank, the family -- led by just-paroled son Tom (Henry Fonda) -- loads up a truck and heads West. On the road, beset by hardships, the Joads meet dozens of other families making the same trek and holding onto the same dream. Once in California, however, the Joads soon realize that the promised land isn't quite what they hoped.
Presented in 35mm!
