Teen Movie Series (95th)

Thursday, May 08, 2014 at 4:00 PM -- 95th Street Library
Warm Bodies (PG-13)

Do you ever feel like you're just shuffling around, bumping into people, unable to apologize or say much of anything? If so, Warm Bodies, the best romzomcom ever, is for you. This film was selected by teens as the one PG-13 zombie movie they'd want to watch again and again. If the undead don't interest you stop by anyway to taste test several brands of buttered microwaved popcorn.
