From Page to Screen at The State Theatre

Do great books make bad movies? What are the artistic challenges in moving literary works from page to screen? The State Theatre and The Stanislaus County Bar Association invite you to explore both artistic forms through interactive pre-film discussions moderated by an expert.

Two carefree pals traveling through Alabama are mistakenly arrested, and charged with murder. Fortunately, one of them has a cousin who’s a lawyer – Vincent Gambini, a former auto mechanic from Brooklyn who just passed his bar exam after his sixth try. When he arrives with his leather-clad girlfriend , to try his first case, it’s a real shock – for him and the Deep South!

Doors open at 6; discussion at 6:30: film at 7 p.m.
