The San Ramon Arts Foundation invites everyone to join its Film Club, a virtual series with everyone watching the movies on their own and then joining co-hosts Dave Owens and Patrick Gutierrez for a discussion.
This month's movie is "John Doe," starring Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwyck in Frank Capra's timeless film about media sensationalism and the dark side of populism. The online one-hour Q&A discussion will be held at 7 p.m. this Sunday (Feb. 28), and will include internationally renowned film historian Joseph McBride.
To join the San Ramon Film Club, sign up for a full-service Contra Costa County library card at ccclib.org, then watch the movie on the free streaming service, Kanopy, at ccclib.kanopy.com/product/meet-john-doe. Some movies may also be available through other streaming services.
