Seen any good movies lately? You will at the next Movie Night at Phoenixville Public Library. On Thursday, October 13 at 6:45 PM, we will show “Platoon” (1986, rated R, running time 120 min.) on the big screen in the Community Education Room. The film is next in our countdown of the American Film Institute’s “100 Greatest Movies”. Considered by many to by the most realistic portrayal of the Vietnam War on film, the movie is based on director Oliver Stone’s own GI experiences in the war. Charlie Sheen, Willem Dafoe, Tom Berenger, and Forest Whitaker star. This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, call 610-933-3013, Ext. 32 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Phoenixville Public Library is located at 183 Second Avenue in Phoenixville, PA.
On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
