The movie will start at 6 p.m. at the library, located at 700 East Palmdale Boulevard.
Starring Johnny Depp, Aidan Quinn and Mary Stuart Masterson, Benny & Joon (1993) rated PG tells the story of Benny who cares for his mentally disturbed sister, Joon, and who also welcomes the eccentric Sam into his home at Joon’s request. Sam entertains Joon while he dreams of a job at the video store. Once Benny realizes Joon and Sam have started a relationship, he kicks Sam out of the house. This leads to an altercation between brother and sister. Joon runs away with Sam, who soon realizes that she may need more support than he alone can provide.
