This is a musical for all ages! It is romantic musical comedy film based on the Gilbert and Sullivan comic opera of the same name. The film, starring Kevin Kline, Angela Lansbury, Linda Ronstadt, George Rose, and Rex Smith, is an adaptation of the 1980 Joseph Papp production of Pirates.
Come enjoy the swashbuckling adventure, the fabulous fun and the rollicking romance. It’s probably the best version of any of the Gilbert & Sullivan operettas out there.
The movie is rated G and runs 112 minutes. It will be shown in the first floor meeting room. The Library provides chairs and tables plus viewers can bring blankets, lawn chairs, pillows and make themselves comfortable so as to best enjoy the movie and being in the air conditioned room.
