Fall is coming. Being a Game of Thrones fan I almost wrote “winter is coming,” but of course, fall will be here first!

And speaking of fall and Science Fiction/Fantasy titles — here is a flyer listing our Monthly Science Fiction Films @ the library for the fall season!

Our Monthly Science Fiction Films are shown the second Friday of each month.

And our Friday Night Free Films are shown the first and third Friday of each month.

Our Friday Night Free Film schedule for fall will be finalized and sent out shortly; and I will also post the flyer for those films on Facebook as soon as they schedule has been finalized.

Have a great Thursday & join us for our fun filled movies @ the library!

Monthly Science Fiction Film @ The Library Tonight!

After you’ve attended the Doc Possum Band’s Beatles Tribute Concert in the Civic Center Plaza tonight, Friday, August 14, come to the library and see our Monthly Science Fiction Film for August!

Silent Running (1972): As this science fiction classic opens, botanist Freeman Lowell (Bruce Dern) has spent eight years aboard the space freighter “Valley Forge” preserving the only botanical specimens left from Earth under huge geodesic domes. When he receives orders to destroy the project and return home, Lowell rebels and hijacks the freighter, while plunging the craft into the gaseous Rings of Saturn. From that moment on, he has only the trees, the gardens and two “Drone” robots, Huey and Dewey, to keep him company on his greatest adventure of all. Starring Bruce Dern and featuring: Cliff Potts, Ron Rifkin & Jesse Vint. MPAA Rating: G. Run Time: 90 minutes.
