'The King's Speech' at Marion Music Hall Feb. 9

Feb 5, 2018

On Friday, Feb. 9, the Sippican Historical Society and Marion Council on Aging are sponsoring a monthly film classic. The film will begin at 7 p.m.

February's classic is "The King’s Speech." The future King George VI (Colin Firth) is preparing to take the throne of the British Empire as his brother Edward abdicates. Unfortunately, he has a very bad stutter and will soon be called on to make public speeches. His wife, Queen Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter), hires Australian speech therapist Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush) to help King George control his speech and make his first radio broadcast. Along the way King George and Logue become fast friends.

Before the show, music will be provided by Truman Terrell on the piano and Bob Sanderson on the clarinet. David Pierce will share some observations at the movie’s conclusion.
