Based on the 1951 Ray Bradbury novel of the same name, this François Truffaut classic was first screened at Strode Theatre 50 years ago today.

Guy Montag is a firefighter who lives in a lonely, isolated society where books have been outlawed by a government fearing an independent-thinking public. It is the duty of firefighters to burn any books that have been reported by informants. After Montag falls in love with book-hoarding Clarisse, he begins to read confiscated books. Beginning to question the government’s motives behind book-burning, Montag must decide whether to return to his job or run away knowing full well the consequences that he could face if captured.
