Saturday, Oct. 14, 7 p.m.—LUDLOW—FOLA’s (Friends of Ludlow Auditorium) next movie will be “Spectre,” a James Bond feature, on Saturday, Oct. 14 at 7 p.m. in the Ludlow Town Hall Auditorium.
“Spectre” (2012) is the 25th spy film in the James Bond film series produced by Eon Productions for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Columbia Pictures. It is Daniel Craig’s fourth performance as James Bond, and the second film in the series directed by Sam Mendes following “Skyfall”, with a screenplay written by John Logan, Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and Jez Butterworth.
The story sees Bond pitted against the global criminal organization Spectre and their leader Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Bond attempts to thwart Blofeld’s plan to launch a global surveillance network, and discovers Spectre and Blofeld were behind the events of the previous three films. The film marks Spectre and Blofeld’s first appearance in an Eon Productions film since 1971’s “Diamonds Are Forever” with Christoph Waltz playing the organization’s leader. Several recurring James Bond characters, including M, Q and Eve Moneypenny return, with the new additions of Léa Seydoux as Dr. Madeleine Swann, Dave Bautista as Mr. Hinx, Andrew Scott as Max Denbigh, and Monica Bellucci as Lucia Sciarra.
“Spectre” was filmed from December 2014 to July 2015, with locations in Austria, the United Kingdom, Italy, Morocco and Mexico. The action scenes prioritized practical effects and stunts, while still employing computer-generated imagery made by five different companies. “Spectre” was estimated to have cost around $245 million, making it the most expensive Bond film and one of the most expensive films ever made.
The movie is open to everyone and is free; donations are appreciated. Popcorn and water will be provided. For information, call 802-228-7239 or visit fola.us.
