The Summer Classics Movie Night returns to Milton’s Waldie Blacksmith Shop next week.

The Milton Historical Society is showing 12 Angry Men, the 1957 film considered one of the greatest courtroom dramas of all time.

Following the closing arguments in a murder trial, the 12 members of the jury must deliberate, with a guilty verdict meaning death for the accused, an inner-city teen. As the dozen men try to reach a unanimous decision while sequestered in a room, one juror casts considerable doubt on elements of the case. Personal issues soon rise to the surface, and conflict threatens to derail the delicate process that will decide one boy’s fate.

The acclaimed film was directed by Sidney Lumet and stars Henry Fonda, Lee J. Cobb, Ed Begley, E.G. Marshall and Jack Klugman.

The movie is being shown Thursday, June 22, at 7:30 p.m. at the Waldie Blacksmith Shop, 16 James St.
