Comedy on the Silver Screen

By From page B4 | May 03, 2013

Silver Screen Classic Movie Series continues on Saturday, May 4, with a gentle but thought-provoking comedy from 1963 — “Lilies of the field.”

Itinerant veteran Homer Smith just wants water for his radiator. But the nuns have plans for this clearly strong young man and their Mother Superior has her ways of coercing him into staying.

The experience — frustrating and enlightening — changes everyone.

This movie is shown at 1, 4 and 7:30 p.m. in the Beecher Room of the Auburn Library, 350 Nevada St. in Auburn. Presented by the Library, the movie is free.
