October is the month for ghost stories, goblins and ghouls. With Halloween lurking just around the corner, people of all ages enjoy the excuse to have a little fun with the unknown and the unfamiliar.
At the West Linn Adult Community Center we don't have to be scared silly by a creepy clown with a chainsaw to experience the gasps and goosebumps of the season.
The "what ifs" of life are more than enough to haunt you and make your heart race.
Life, death and love are all popular themes in the realm of questions that can move us to reflection and deep emotion. Sometimes the thrill of imagination is more powerful than anything that can be seen or touched.
For the October Monday Matinee, the West Linn Adult Community Center presents the movie "Ghost" starring Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg.
This modern classic delivers a love story with a supernatural twist. Sam Wheat and his girlfriend, Molly, are very much in love, but after Sam is horribly murdered his spirit stays behind to try to warn Molly of danger. He enlists the help of a reluctant psychic (Goldberg) who is unaware of her true abilities.
The result is a thrilling and often hilarious race to protect Sam's true love. Will they succeed? Grab some free popcorn and drinks and join us as we find out the fate of Sam, Molly and their love. The screening takes place at 1 p.m. Monday, Oct. 14.
