When Tropes Attack!!! @ Cedar Mill Community Library
Dec 5 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Join us at Cedar Mill Library (in the meeting rooms) for a brand new movie program!
Pop culture media often uses recurring plot devices and cliches to help with storytelling. Let’s learn all about (and maybe laugh at) these commonly used themes as we watch a movie, play “spot the trope bingo,” and have a discussion (as time allows.)
Adults 18+
This event runs after library hours, and may feature R rated films.
Our first movie is a silly and satirical sci-fi classic, rated R, in which “The only good bug is a dead bug!”
