Starting on September 20, 2018, a new event will take place at the Rancho Mirage Library and Observatory. The Rancho Mirage Writers Festival Film Club is a free series, held on the third Thursday of each month from September 2018 to June 2019. Films will start at 3pm and free popcorn and water will be available. A new sound system has been installed in the room for the highest quality viewing experience. Films are selected by Jamie Kabler and Peter Bart. The theme for the 2019 Festival centers around the 75th Anniversary of D-Day. These movies have been selected to complement and explore that theme. The featured film this month is The Guns of Navarone (1961), a British-American epic war film based on the book of the same name. Starring Gregory Peck, David Niven and Anthony Quinn, it follows the efforts of an Allied commando unit to destroy a seemingly impregnable German fortress that threatens Allied naval ships in the Aegean Sea.
