Wednesday Movie Club: The Holdovers In-Person
This film is being presented as part of the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library's Wednesday Movie Club, a weekly showcase of movies that matter. Attendees will be invited to discuss the film immediately following the screening. Registration is not required.

Audiences have described THE HOLDOVERS as "cute and touching if not laugh-out-loud hilarious" and "a thought-provoking dramedy for viewers seeking a dialogue-driven movie with a throwback feel."
