MONROE, Conn. -- The Edith Wheeler Memorial Library in Monroe presents March Movie Night with a showing of "Creed," at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 1.
Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) never knew his famous father, boxing champion Apollo Creed, who died before Adonis was born. However, boxing is in his blood, so he seeks out Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) and asks the retired champ to be his trainer.
Rocky sees much of Apollo in Adonis, and agrees to mentor him, even as he battles an opponent deadlier than any in the ring. With Rocky's help, Adonis soon gets a title shot, but whether he has the true heart of a fighter remains to be seen.
The movie has a running time of 2 hours and 13 minutes. It is rated PG-13 and registration is not required.
For additional information, you may call the library at (203) 452-2850.
The Edith Wheeler Memorial Library is at 733 Monroe Turnpike, Monroe.
