Join us for our new Saturday Film Series!
Hosted by Dan Davis, the DailyUV’s film reviewer (https://dailyuv.com/profile/2232), the series is titled Swashbuckling Adventures. On the third Saturday of the month, starting in September, a new adventure film from a particular period will be presented, beginning with The Adventures of Robin Hood (1939) and ending with Stardust (2007). These films are some of Dan’s favorites in this genre and may be enjoyed by all ages. Come at 1PM or a few minutes earlier for a brief introduction, and enjoy some good, old fashioned, jolly romps.
