“Battle of the Sexes” Movie at Dennis Public Library                           

 

On Thursday, June 21 at 5:30 p.m., join us at our monthly movie night at Dennis Public Library.  This month’s feature is the 2017 biographical sports film starring Emma Stone as Billie Jean King and Steve Carrell as Bobby Riggs. Both received Golden Globe nominations for their performances.  Bill Pullman, Elizabeth Shue and Sarah Silverman have supporting roles.  In 1973, at a time when women’s sports were not always considered on par with men’s, 55 year old acclaimed tennis pro Bobby Riggs proclaims that he can beat any woman player at the game.  Tennis great Margaret Court accepts the challenge, but Riggs handily beats her.  Twenty-nine year old Billie Jean King realizes she must now accept the invitation and trains strenuously for the match.  The film ends with the highly anticipated and publicized game between King and Riggs.  The movie is rated PG13 and has a run time of two hours and one minute.  Closed captioning is available.  We’ll provide snacks and drinks.  The Dennis Public Library is located at the corner of Route 28 and Hall Street in Dennis Port.
