“The Greatest Showman” Movie at Dennis Public Library                  


On Thursday, August 16 at 5:30 p.m., join us for our monthly movie night at Dennis Public Library.  This month’s feature is the 2017 musical, loosely based on the life of legendary showman P.T. Barnum.  It stars Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson and Zendaya.  This movie won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song. In the 19th century, young entrepreneur Phineas Taylor Barnum obtains a large bank loan which he uses to purchase a museum in Manhattan, which initially displays wax figures.  He subsequently brings in various human “curiosities” who he uses as performers.  These unusual attractions bring in large crowds, making Barnum a very wealthy man.  The film also dramatizes Barnum’s patronage of the famous Swedish singer Jenny Lind who he brings to America and takes on tour.   Barnum’s business endeavor eventually becomes the circus known as The Greatest Show on Earth.  The movie is rated PG 13 and has a run time of 1 hour and 45 minutes.  Closed captioning is available.  We’ll provide popcorn and drinks.  The Dennis Public Library is located at the corner of Route 28 and Hall Street in Dennis Port.
