Fantastic Films at the Library

by Moe - 0 Comment(s)

 

The brand new program guide has just come out and CPL has dozens of opportunities for film lovers.

For years now the Central branch has been offering a movie every Thursday afternoon (1:00–3:30 p.m.) in our John Dutton Theatre. From Sept 5th to Dec 5th we are showcasing a total of 14 films from classics to contemporary.

Crowfoot runs a film night on the third Thursday of every month featuring brand new DVD releases. Join us 6:30–8:30 p.m. on Sept 19th, Oct 17th, Nov 21th and Dec 12th. To find out what film we are featuring call us at the beginning of each month at 221-4122. No registration required.

New this year we are offering a four part series called Alfred Hitchcock: Master of Suspense. Just in time for Halloween, this series rotates through four different branches/venues. Immerse yourself in the cinematic world of Hitch, the visionary director and icon whose films continue to shock and amaze audiences old and new. From 2:00–3:30 p.m. at Country Hills Thursday Sept 19; Shawnessey Friday Sept 27th; Signal Hill Sunday Sept 29; and Bowness Oct 24th.

Our Celebrate National Library Month Film Series kicks off with Hollywood Librarian: "A touching and insightful film that shows how librarians have been portrayed in the movies - often bespectacled, occasionally glamorous, sometimes too brainy for their own good — compared with real-life librarians in an increasingly digital and globalized world."  Or have a peek at these: Remote Access- Distant Libraries of the World; The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore; The Great Book Robbery; or Modern Marvels: The Real National Treasure.

Many of the branches also show films on school PD days, so call your local branch to see if they have something lined up.

Join old friends, meet new ones and enjoy a great movie from classics to contemporary.
