Description

Join us for our new monthly series Roxy Book Club! Which is better, the book or the movie? To find out, take the month of May to read the classic, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and join us in the Roxy Annex at 6pm* for a discussion led by Christina Tripp. Following the discussion will be a screening of the 2005 movie adaptation in the main Roxy theater at 7:30pm.

In this adaptation of Jane Austen's beloved novel, Elizabeth Bennet (Keira Knightley) lives with her mother, father and sisters in the English countryside. As the eldest, she faces mounting pressure from her parents to marry. When the outspoken Elizabeth is introduced to the handsome and upper-class Mr. Darcy (Matthew MacFadyen), sparks fly. Although there is obvious chemistry between the two, Darcy's overly reserved nature threatens the fledgling relationship.


*Attendance at the Book Club discussion is not required to see the film!
