West Shore Community College’s 50th anniversary classic Hollywood film series, in collaboration with Manistee’s Vogue Theater, continues on April 18, at 7:30 p.m., with the screening of the 1994 dramatic comedy film “Forrest Gump.”

Slow-witted Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks) has never thought of himself as disadvantaged, and thanks to his supportive mother (Sally Field), he leads anything but a restricted life.

Whether dominating on the gridiron as a college football star, fighting in Vietnam or captaining a shrimp boat, Forrest inspires people with his childlike optimism. But one person Forrest cares about most may be the most difficult to save -- his childhood love, the sweet but troubled Jenny (Robin Wright).

Two films from each decade of the college’s existence (1967 - 2017) are being screened until June 2017. The remaining films will be shown on May 16, and June 13, at 7:30 p.m.

Moviegoers will be charged the same ticket price for the decade in which the films were released.
