Redlands library’s ‘Southern California in Film’ series returns Sept. 18 – Press Enterprise

After an 18-month hiatus, the A.K. Smiley Public Library’s “Southern California in Film” series will return Saturday, Sept. 18, with a 2 p.m. screening of “Stand and Deliver” at the Contemporary Club.

Based on the story of Jaime Escalante, a math teacher in East Los Angeles’ Garfield High School, “Stand and Deliver” tells of Escalante’s work to help his students realize their untapped potential. The film was added to the Library of Congress’s National Film Registry in 2011 in recognition of its “enduring significance to American culture,” according to a news release.

Registration is requested, but not required for the free program. To register, go to akspl.org/news-events/film-series-returns/.

The Contemporary Club is at 173 S. Eureka St., Redlands.
