Cinematique and the Daytona Beach Regional Library at City Island will feature Days of Thunder as part of its book-and-a-movie series, Cinematique under the Stars, Friday, Jan. 25.
There’s plenty of vintage NASCAR and race track action in this film, which stars Tom Cruise as young, fiercely competitive racing driver Cole Trickle. Nicole Kidman plays Trickle’s nurse and romantic interest after Trickle has a near-deadly crash on the track. Randy Quaid, Robert Duvall and Michael Rooker round out the cast. Tony Scott directed the film.
The movie will be shown at dusk in Riverfront Park on the corner Beach Street and Magnolia Avenue, Daytona Beach. Bring a lawn chair or blanket. Hot dogs, popcorn, candy and sodas will be available for purchase.
This event is free and open to the public. It’s co-sponsored by the Friends of the Library and the Volusia County Public Library system.
For more information, please call Adult Program Coordinator Deborah Shafer at 386-257-6036, ext. 16264.
