The GenX Cinema series presents the 1999 satire-drama “Fight Club” on Wednesday, November 15, at 7:00 pm at the Soper Reese Theatre in Lakeport. Entry is by donation. Inventive, well cast, and controversial, the film stars Brad Pitt and Ed Norton in an adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk’s best-selling novel about two young men who find an unusual way to bring excitement into their dull 9-to-5 lives. Director, David Fincher, uses the plot and characters to examine Generation X, the “middle children of history,” the first generation to grow up with a value system created by television and video advertising. Regarded by many of today’s critics as one of the greatest films of the 1990s. The film is rated R with run time of 2 hours 19 minutes. “Fight Club” is sponsored by O’Meara Brothers Brewing, and presented by the Lake County Theatre Company and the Soper Reese Theatre. The Soper Reese Theatre is located at 275 S. Main St., Lakeport, 707-263-0577, soperreesetheatre.com.
