A movie for gardeners and everyone else with a funny twist on one of Shakespeare’s favorite plays this Thursday at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.

When Maggie Smith and Michael Caine are listed in the cast of a film, you know you’re in for fine viewing. 

But  – Hulk Hogan?  Ozzy Osbourne?  Dolly Parton?

Yes, they too are in the next film at the Murphy Library.  At least their voices are.

The library is showing Gnomeo and Juliet an animated film based on a well-known play of William Shakespeare who also appears in this film with Patrick Stewart’s voice.  There are two feuding families of garden gnomes (yes, gnomes) who live next door to each other.  A boy from one family and a girl from the other fall in love, as Sir Elton John’s songs play in the background. 

The film is rated G and will screen Thursday at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.  Running time is 84 minutes.  Call 837-2417 for details.
