Silver Screen Sunday: The Defiant Ones

This Silver Screen Sunday is dedicated to the life and career of Oscar Winning Actor Sidney Poitier.

Winner of two Oscars for Best Writing and Cinematography, The Defiant Ones broke new ground by delivering its story of racial intolerance through a fast-moving blend of action and suspense. Joker (Tony Curtis) and Noah (Sidney Poitier) are two convicts on the run from a Southern work gang, bound together by an unbreakable iron chain and separated by an unbridled hatred toward each other. Relentlessly pursued by a posse and bloodhounds, they must put aside their differences to survive!

Admission is free. Masks required.
