Monday, November 16 the library will show the film, “Badlands” at 6 p.m. Kit Carruthers and his girlfriend Holly Sargis from Fort Dupree, South Dakota, are on the run after killing Holly’s father who disagreed with their relationship. On their way towards the Badlands they leave a trail of dispassionate and seemingly random murders. The script was based on the true story of the Charles Starkweather and Caril-Ann Fugate murders in 1958 and stars Martin Sheen, Sissy Spacek and Warren Oates.
