Movies @ the Library
The library hosts free movies for the public throughout the year. Join us for the very best in newly released DVDs. Each movie will be chosen from the very latest DVDs that the library is allowed to show and will be announced at least one week prior to the showing. In addition to feature films, we also show foreign films, recently released documentaries and retrospective film series.

GET ON UP (2014) PG-13 starring Chadwick Boseman. Based on the incredible life story of the Godfather of Soul, the film will give a fearless look inside the music, moves and moods of James Brown, taking audiences on the journey from his impoverished childhood to his evolution into one of the most influential figures of the 20th century. Well behaved children are welcome when accompanied by a responsible adult.

DEAR WHITE PEOPLE (2014) R starring Tyler James Williams. A sharp and funny comedy about a group of African-American students as they navigate campus life and racial boundaries at a predominately white college. A sly, provocative satire about being a black face in a white place. No children.
Monday, March 2 at 6:30PM – Auditorium
THE HOMESMAN (2014) R starring Tommy Lee Jones and Hilary Swank. Three women who have been driven mad by pioneer life are to be transported across the country by covered wagon by the pious, independent-minded Mary Bee Cuddy, who in turn employs low-life drifter George Briggs to help her.
Tommy Lee Jones, has made a wrenching, relentless and anti-heroic western that stands among the year’s most powerful American films. Salon.com
Jones tells this story with care and a lack of hurry, a pace to fit an age when people traveled no faster than two mules pulling a wagon could carry them. Roger Moore Rated R; no children.
If you didn’t see it at the theater, join us for free admission and popcorn (on occasion). Movies are generally shown in the library’s upstairs auditorium. Please check the library calendar for late breaking changes to the schedule or weather cancellations. Hope to see you!
