Silver Screenings: Defending Your Life (1991)

Sunday, January 19, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


Members & guests–free. To register, please scroll down or call the Village office at 773.248.8700.

Let’s start the year with laughs and a new outlook on life with Albert Brooks’ comedy with Meryl Streep. Come visit Judgement City where we go after we pass to determine if we’ve sufficiently overcome fear in order to advance to the next stage of our existence in the universe. Albert Brooks’ view of purgatory is hysterical, as well as enlightening. Can we simply live life without fear? Or are we doomed to repeat life on Earth until we do? Also starring Lee Grant, Rip Torn, and cameos from Buck Henry and Shirley MacLaine.

Silver Screenings presents films that you probably saw (or should have seen) a few years ago and will enjoy seeing again. The theater accommodates thirty people and it has real theater seats in banked rows and a big screen. A discussion will follow the movie.
