Murphy Library shows comedy adventure movie for the whole family this Thursday

Posted on: July 20, 2014

Do you enjoy Ian Fleming’s novels? Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, the next movie at the Murphy Library is based on one of his books but it’s not a James Bond story. Rather it’s about a guy who invents things that usually don’t work. Then he creates a car that can fly and his life takes off. Best of all, this is a kids movie that everyone can enjoy.

The library is showing Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Thursday at 6 p.m. It is rated G and running time is 144 minutes. Dick Van Dyke and Sally Ann Howes star.

Children’s author Roald Dahl wrote the screenplay with the perfect partner in writing adventures, Richard Maibaum, the screenwriter for the 007 movies from Dr. No to Licence to Kill.

And the filming locations take you from a windmill in Buckinghamshire, England, to beach scenes on the Cote d’Azur in France, and to Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany. Call the library at 837-2417.
