      Glen Campbell:  I’ll Be Me

      Tuesday, June 26, 2018
      Show time:  2:00 p.m.  
      Gibbon Community Center                              
      (106 ParkDr., Gibbon, MN)

      This 2014 American documentary film followed country music singer, Glen Campbell on his farewell tour and his journey with Alzheimer’s Disease.   

      The movie offers a window into Alzheimer’s that should prove powerful for Campbell fans and novices alike.  The Washington Post‘s Ann Hornaday wrote that “‘I’ll Be Me’ is an elevating experience, inviting the audience to bear witness to Campbell’s courage, humor and spiritual strength.  His story may make for a tough movie, but it’s an important and triumphant one, as well.”

       We strongly encourage you to mark this date on your calendar.  Don’t let your friends tell you what a great event you missed!  The movie lasts 116 minutes.
