Family Film: Iron Giant @ 7th Street Theatre
Mar 24 @ 7:30 pm

“The Iron Giant” is one of those rare animated features that offers plenty of fun and action to keep the kids entertained, wrapped around engaging characters and a story with a strong message.

Made in 1999, and based on a story by the British poet laureate Ted Hughes, the film takes place at the height of the Cold War and Sputnik-inspired anxieties and is loaded with period references to alarm over the Soviet threat and grade-B sci-fi and monster movies of the era.

The “iron giant” is a robot that drops from the sky and frightens a small town, setting off an overly zealous government agent. With the unlikely friendship of a lonely boy, the robot learns about humans and ultimately the duo helps the townspeople overcome their prejudices and fears.

Advance tickets are available at Harbor Drug and Crown Drug in Hoquiam, City Drug in Aberdeen and at the website, www.7thstreettheatre.com.

History Talk: The Evergreen State in World War I @ Westport Timberland Library
Mar 25 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Historian Lorraine McConaghy will begin the program with an illustrated introduction to the war’s themes. Following that, guests may participate in a scripted “Readers’ Theater,” designed to portray the turmoil of the years 1914 – 1919.  The script is drawn from first-person sources such as letters, diaries and news paper stories. It allows modern readers to speak aloud the words of a past generation, and gain an sense of how Washingtonians of that era experienced the great social, economic and political changes: industrialization, immigration, women’s rights, radical labor, epidemic disease, and worldwide turmoil.
