THE CATCHER WAS A SPY
R, CC, 2018, 98 mins.
Major League baseball player Moe Berg (Paul Rudd) lives a double life as a spy for the Office of Strategic Services during World War II.
On Friday, June 22 we'll be joined for a post-screening discussion by Dr. Vince Houghton after the 7:45pm show. Dr. Houghton is the historian and curator for the International Spy Museum. He has a PhD in Diplomatic and Military History from the University of Maryland, where his research centered on US scientific and technological intelligence (nuclear intelligence) in the Second World War and early Cold War. Vince is a veteran of the United States Army, and served in the Balkans, where he worked closely with both civilian and military intelligence agencies in several capacities.
"Paul Rudd is fantastic as the enigmatic Moe Berg, a real life footnote from history in the thriller 'The Catcher Was A Spy'."
Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian.

Hidden inside a smartphone, the bustling city of Textopolis is home to all emojis. Each emoji has only one facial expression, except for Gene, an exuberant emoji with multiple expressions. Determined to become "normal" like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his best friend Hi-5 and a notorious code breaker called Jailbreak. During their travels through the other apps, the three emojis discover a great danger that could threaten their phone's very existence. Part of our Free School's Out Summer Family Series.

A portrait of a man whom we all think we know, this emotional and moving film takes us beyond the zip-up cardigans and the land of make-believe, and into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with compassion and limitless imagination.
