BAHM Movie Monday featuring ‘Jane Eyre’

Monday, September 23, 2019

The Bartlesville Area History Museum will show the Victorian era movie “Jane Eyre” during its next "Movie Monday," a brown bag event set for Sept. 23.

The feature will be shown from noon to 1:15 pm at the museum, located on the fifth floor of City Hall, 401 S. Johnstone Ave.

“This 1970 production is set in north of England during an important historic British period, where the ‘Industrial Revolution’ had begun in the late 18th Century," said BAHM Coordinator Jo Crabtree. "It touches on several social issues concerning women including women’s employment, genteel poverty, education and marriage.”

A Tulsa VCI-Entertainment film, “Jane Eyre” is a stirring movie about a mistreated orphan girl who grew into a self-reliant, confident woman with courage and strong values. The journey she took from the time she left Lowood School until the story’s conclusion is remarkable and at times unbelievable. “Jane Eyre” speaks on the themes of love, forgiveness, faith in God and the determination to live out one’s moral convictions, even when it isn’t easy.

According to a 2016 review by Jennifer Anne F. Messing, this version of the movie "is made particularly moving by the excellent performances of George C. Scott, who won an Emmy Award nomination in 1972 for his performance as Mr. Edward Rochester, and Susannah York, who convincingly portrayed Jane Eyre. Their on-screen chemistry, combined with the hauntingly beautiful musical score, the authentic period costumes and the picturesque English countryside settings, make this film a real treat for classic movie lovers."

The Bartlesville Area History Museum is a family friendly facility where admission is free and donations are always welcome. Hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
