Livermore’s Vine Cinema, 1722 First Street in Livermore, will present a special free showing of the movie The Hound of the Baskervilles as part of the Livermore Public Library’s Livermore Reads Together series at 12:00 pm on Saturday, February 8.
Based on the novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, The Hound of the Baskervilles (1939) marks the first of the fourteen Sherlock Holmes movies starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce as the detective duo and ranks as one of the best screen versions. In The Hound of the Baskervilles, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson confront one of their most difficult cases ever: Is there truly a curse on the old Baskerville estate? Is there truly a ghostly beast lurking on the dark, eerie moors?
This program is part of Livermore Reads Together 2014, a community-wide reading program featuring Laurie R. King’s The Beekeeper’s Apprentice. The community of Livermore is encouraged to join their neighbors by participating in the Livermore Reads Together events for children and adults during the month of February 2014. Copies of books and event schedules are available at all Livermore Public Library locations. Livermore Reads Together is generously sponsored by The Friends of the Livermore Library.
