On Sunday, March 17, the Wayne County Arts Allianceís Sunday Night Cinema presents the 1973 science fiction thriller Soylent Green.
Directed by Richard Fleischer, the film stars Charlton Heston and Edward G. Robinson in his final film role. The story is set in New York in a dystopian future in which the city is dilapidated and over-crowded and humankind subsists on food rations. Heston plays detective Robert Thorn, who reveals that "soylent green," one of the rations, isnít the vegetable matter it was assumed to be.
