On Wednesdays at 2 pm, Montclair Public Library hosts The Every Wednesday Matinee, a film series presented in its auditorium. In March 2020 we will be celebrating Women’s History Month by watching the following movies:

A League of Their Own (March 4) – Starring: Tom Hanks, Geena Davis, Madonna, Lori Petty, Jon Lovitz. A League of Their Own is a 1992 American sports comedy-drama film that tells a fictionalized account of the real-life All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL). (1992, 128 minutes, Color)

Norma Rae (March 11) – Starring: Sally Field, Ron Leibman, Beau Bridges, Pat Hingle, Barbara Baxley.  Based on the book Crystal Lee, A Woman of Inheritance, the film follows Norma Rae, a factory worker from a small town in North Carolina who becomes involved in unionizing activities at the textile factory where she works after her and her co-workers’ health is compromised due to poor working conditions. (1979, 117 minutes, Color)

Frida (March 18) – Starring: Salma Hayek, Alfred Molina, Geoffrey Rush, Valeria Golino. Biopic of the bold and controversial life of artist Frida Kahlo. Set in Mexico City, this visually evocative film traces her lifelong, tempestuous relationship with her mentor, along with her illicit affairs with Trotsky and various women. Her forward-thinking artistic, political and sexual attitudes are explored as we witness a hard-drinking, passionate woman of the early 1900s. (2003, 123 minutes, Color)

The Girls in the Band (March 25) – Starring:Anat Cohen, Billie Rogers, Billy Taylor, Carline Ray, Clora Bryant, Esperanza Spalding, Geri Allen, Herbie Hancock, James Briggs Murray, Jane Ira Bloom, Marian McPartland, Patrice Rushen, Peggy Gilbert, Peter O’Brien, Roz Cron, Tammy L. Kernodle, Terri Lyne Carrington, Viola Smith. The award-winning documentary film tells the poignant, untold stories of female jazz and big band instrumentalists and their fascinating, history-making journeys from the late 30s to the present day. The many first-hand accounts of the challenges faced by these talented women provide a glimpse into decades of racism and sexism that have existed in America. (2013, 87 minutes, Color)
