Library’s WWI film series continues with screening of ‘Wings’

A.K. Smiley Public Library’s free World War I film series continues with a screening of the silent classic Wings at 1 p.m. Saturday, January 20, at the First Congregational Church of Redlands located at 2 W. Olive Street. As an added treat, the screening will include Bob Salisbury live on the organ!

Directed by a veteran WWI combat pilot, Wings tells the story of David Armstrong and Jack Powell as they enlist in the American Air Service, and Mary Preston who joins the war effort as an ambulance driver in France. Renowned for its realistic flying sequences, the film was the first to be awarded the Academy Award for Outstanding Picture, the only fully silent film to receive that accolade. Wings stars film legend Clara Bow, Buddy Rogers and Richard Arden.

This screening is free and open to the public. Registration is requested, but not required. To register or for more information on future film screenings, please visit www.akspl.org  or contact the Heritage Room at (909)798-7632.
