Blinded By the Light Featured as Mid-Week Movie at the Palmdale City Library

The Palmdale City Library, located at 700 E. Palmdale Blvd., continues its Mid-Week Movies program with a showing of the movie Blinded By the Light (2019), rated PG-13, on Wednesday, Feb. 19, at 5:30 pm. Admission and popcorn are free.

Javed, a Pakistani college arts student, experiences racial and economic turmoil while living in Luton, England, in 1987. He writes poetry as a way to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the stubborn views of his traditional father. When a classmate introduces him to the music of Bruce Springsteen, Javed sees parallels between the singer’s powerful lyrics and his own working-class environment. Springsteen’s melodies soon inspire Javed to find his own voice and follow his dreams.

Other movies scheduled to be shown in February/March include The Ring (2002) rated PG-13, on Feb. 26; Playing With Fire (2019) rated PG on March 4; Downton Abbey (2019) rated PG, on March 11; Whip It (2009) rated PG-13, on March 18; and 13 Going On 30 (2004) rated PG-13 on March 25.

This program is made possible through the generous support of the Friends of the Palmdale City Library.

The Palmdale City Library is open seven days a week. Hours of operation are Monday through Thursday from 10 am to 8 pm; Friday and Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm; and Sunday from 1 to 5 pm.
