Mark your calendar for: First Monday Films with Irv Slifkin

This month’s feature is “A Matter of Life and Death” AKA “Stairway to Heaven.”

British World War II pilot David Niven disembarks from a plane during a bombing mission and lands on a beach where he meets American radio operator Kim Hunter.  He falls in love with her, but before the romance can go any further he is put on a heavenly trial attended by important figures where he has to defend his right to survive.  A gloriously offbeat fantasy from “the Archers”—aka the team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (“The Red Shoes”)—that is magical and thought-provoking at the same time.

When:  Monday, December 4 at 7 PM

Where:  Moorestown Library, Rooms A & B
