Movie Theater Thursdays
The staff of the Gardiner Public Library is pleased to announce the resumption of our popular movies at the library program. The event will now be held on Thursday afternoons and the program has been rechristened Movie Theater Thursdays. Movies begin at 2:30PM in our beautiful Hazzard Reading Room.
This year, the staff is trying something different - there is now a theme to the movie titles. The first theme is Hollywood and the Great Depression. On January 19th the movie is Cinderella Man (2005) starring Russell Crowe and Renee Zellweger. The movie for January 26th is Paper Moon (1973) starring Ryan O’Neal and introducing Tatum O’Neal. February 2nd will feature Places in the Heart (1984) starring Sally Field and John Malkovich. The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985) starring Mia Farrow and Jeff Daniels is the feature for February 9th and the movie for February 16th is My Man Godfrey (1936) starring Carole Lombard and William Powell.
The movie theme for the following four weeks is Mister and Misses and those titles will be announced in February.
Our winter movie events program started with a grant from the J.W. Robinson Welfare Trust and began so that people would use the library as a warming place for the cold Maine winters. Well, winters are still cold and the library will once again show movies! Staff may also offer popcorn during the shows.
This event is free and open to the public. The Gardiner Public Library is located at 152 Water Street, Gardiner, ME 04345.
