FLICKS IN THE STICKS AT GORSLEY VILLAGE HALL 7:30pm When Tony Lip, a bouncer Tom an Italian-American neighbourhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley, a world-class black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the deep south, they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger - as well as unexpected humanity and humour - they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.
