'Zardoz' Nov. 14 at Wendell Free Library

WENDELL — The 1974 movie “Zardoz” will be shown on Saturday, Nov. 14, at 7:30 p.m., at the Wendell Free Library, at 7 Wendell Depot Rd.

In the distant future, Earth is divided into two camps, the barely civilized group and the overly civilized one with mental powers. A plague is attacking the second group, after which its members cease to have any interest in life and become nearly catatonic. When Zed, one of the barbarians, crosses over, the tenuous balance in their world is threatened. 

Shown 30 minutes prior to the film will be the Doctor Who episode “The Ribos Operation: Part Three,” with Tom Baker as The Doctor, Mary Tamm as Romana and John Leeson as the voice of K9.

Zardoz is the next in the monthly series of science fiction/fantasy and horror/monster movies at the library. Admission is free. For more information about the library, visit www.wendellfreelibrary.org or call 978-544-3559.
