Thursday, Sept. 12, 2019, 6 p.m.

Visit West End Library for a screening of WarGames.
 
On a search for new video games, high school student David Lightman unintentionally hacks into a military supercomputer, and starts a game called Global Thermonuclear War. David’s romp through the computer’s “game” causes it to trigger America’s nuclear arsenal as a response to his simulated threat as the Soviet Union. Once Lightman realizes what he’s done, with help from his friend, Jennifer, he must find a way to notify the authorities to prevent the launch of World War III.
 
WarGames is rated PG, and should end around 7:55 p.m.
