Library Film Series
The library Film Series returns this winter with a new lineup of classic films.
January 26, the series kicks off with one of the most popular romantic comedies from the 1960s, How to Steal a Million.
This films stars Audrey Hepburn and Peter O’Toole as amateur thieves who break into a museum to save her family’s reputation. Filmed in Paris, and boasting costumes by Givenchy, fans of classic films are in for a treat.
In February, on Friday the 16th, the library celebrates Love Your Library Week with the film Desk Set. A battle between brilliant librarians (we’re not biased) and a new computer sets the stage for a showdown at the office. Released in 1954, this film stars Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy.
Spring is the time when the library has traditionally shown a classic comedy. This year on March 9, we’re screening A Night at the Opera from 1935. We can pretend we selected this film to promote our collection of music scores, our music special collections, or even our harp library, but it really is for fun. A Night at the Opera is considered by many to be the Marx Brothers’ best film. Plan for a night of fun.
In April (on the night of the 13th) we will wrap up the film series with a nod to the Max Steiner Collection that we hold in our Special Collections. Steiner composed many famous movie scores including the one for Casablanca. Released in 1942, this film, starring Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart, continues to be popular.
We hope you will join us. All the films begin at 7:00 pm. The library auditorium doors open at 6:00.
As always bring friends but not food to the auditorium.
Admission is free.
