STAMFORD, Conn. -- This summer the Avon Theatre in Stamford is presenting three movies that discuss religious themes with post-film Q and A with the Rev. Paul Zahl.

The final remaining screening date is Aug. 24 at 7:30 p.m. and the film will be "Stars In My Crown." This 1950 film was Jacques Tourneur’s favorite of all his films. It tells the story of a frontier parson, a strong character who once could shoot as well as he can now preach, who brings a warm persona of kindness, prayer, and courage to a troubled town. The parson has to take a voluntary “sabbatical” in the middle of the movie, which is itself a lesson in non-resistance. Subsequently, he has to confront the Ku Klux Klan. Joel McCrea stars as the minister. It is rated G and 89 minutes long.

The Avon Theatre Film Center is at 272 Bedford St. in Stamford.
