Academy Award winner Whoopi Goldberg, Danny Glover and Oprah Winfrey star in director Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Color Purple. From 1909 to 1949, Celie (Goldberg–Ghosts of Mississippi), a Southern Black woman, gradually gains self-respect as she strives to educate herself and to find love–despite an abusive spouse and a society biased against her race and her sex.
All showings are accepting in-kind and cash donations to benefit the Friends of the Ocala Public Library. This film is a part of the Powerful Giving, Energizing Communities, Changing Lives Through Literacy: Marion Theatre Corporate Sponsorship with Duke Energy.
