The Strand Theatre, 345 Main St., concludes its 90th Birthday Film Series with a screening of 2003’s “Lost in Translation” Sunday, Sept. 22, at 1 p.m. Projectionist, Theater Manager and film history expert Liz McLeod will give a brief introduction.

Sofia Coppola’s second feature film, “Lost in Translation,” starring Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson, won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay and a Golden Globe for Best Film — Musical or Comedy.

Unable to sleep, Bob (Murray) and Charlotte (Johansson), two Americans in Tokyo, cross paths one night in a luxury hotel bar. This chance meeting soon becomes a surprising friendship. Charlotte and Bob venture through Tokyo, having often hilarious encounters with its citizens and ultimately discover a new belief in life's possibilities.

All tickets are the $7.50 matinee price, available at the box office 30 minutes prior to the screening. For information about film ratings and about all Strand Theatre films, concerts and events, visit or call 594-0070.
