Wednesday Movie Club: THE MATRIX

Wednesday Movie Club: THE MATRIX 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 for people who love movies. Attendees will be invited to discuss the film immediately following the screening. Registration is not required.

This week, Movie Club will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of the seminal sci fi/action film, THE MATRIX.  Heralded as "one of the most profoundly fresh science fiction films ever made," THE MATRIX redefined what an action film can be -- winning four Academy Awards in the process (for "Best Visual Effects," "Best Sound," "Best Sound Effects Editing," and "Best Film Editing") -- while inspiring endless parody and philosophical debate.  It's a "must see" for anyone who hasn't seen it, and an opportunity to notice something new for anyone who has.


What is the Matrix? Have you ever had a dream that you were so sure was real? What if you couldn't awaken? How would you know the difference between dream and reality? When a beautiful stranger (Carrie Ann Moss) leads computer hacker Neo (Keanu Reeves) to a forbidding underworld, he discovers the shocking truth--the life he knows is the elaborate deception of an evil cyber-intelligence. Neo joins legendary and dangerous rebel warrior Morpheus (Lawrence Fishburne) in the battle to destroy the illusion enslaving humanity. Now, every move, every second, every thought becomes a fight to stay alive--to escape The Matrix.
