FILMS on FRIDAY

See a new or classic film or a documentary at the library every Friday at 2:00 PM    

NOVEMBER 2ND – WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR? An exploration of the life, lessons, and legacy of iconic children's television host, Fred Rogers. A poignant tribute to the mild mannered father-figure who served as moral compass to generations that shows why the late Mr. Rogers remains timely and timeless.  Rated PG

NOVEMBER 9th – LIBRARY CLOSED

NOVEMBER 16TH – BLACK PANTHER - King T'Challa returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as new leader. When two enemies conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must join forces with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Wakandan Special Forces, to prevent Wakanda from being drawn into a world war. Rated PG-13

NOVEMBER 23RD – MEASURE OF A MAN –  Teenager Bobby is enduring a roller coaster of a summer between his parents on the verge of divorce, his sister forcing him to keep her secrets and his best friend leaving. Can he survive all this and learn what truly is the measure of a man?  A feel-good, coming-of-age story starring Donald Sutherland, Luke Wilson and Judy Greer!  Rated PG-13

NOVEMBER 30TH - LOVE, SIMON - Everyone deserves a great love story, but for seventeen year old Simon Spier, it's a little more complicated. He hasn't told his family or friends that he's gay, and he doesn't know the identity of the anonymous classmate that he's fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life changing. RATED PG-13
