MOVIE MATINEES

On Wednesday, October 4, at 1:30 we will be showing the film The Hero.  Sam Elliot stars as a former Western icon fearlessly reckoning with his life, his image, and most importantly, his heart after a surprise diagnosis.

Wednesday, October 11 at 1:30 Allied will be shown.  Brad Pitt stars as an intelligence officer who learns that his wife may be working for the enemy giving him only 72 hours to prove her innocence and save his family.  This film is rated R for violence, some nudity, language and drug use.

Tuesday, October 17 at 1:30 the selection is The Promise.   Set during the last days of the Ottoman Empire, the film follows a love triangle between Michael, a brilliant medical student, the beautiful and sophisticated Ana, and Chris – a renowned journalist based in Paris (IMDb). They need to survive as the world around them crumbles, and one of history’s darkest yet rarely told chapters unfolds before their eyes.

A change of pace on Wednesday, October 25 as we play Going In Style.  This comedy stars Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin. 

Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, three lifelong pals risk it all by embarking on a daring bid to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money.  (IMDb)

October Book Discussion Group

The novel Last Days of Night by Graham Moore is the selection to be discussed on Wednesday, October 18, at 6:00 p.m.  PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE OF TIME.

“New York, 1888. Gas lamps still flicker in the city streets, but the miracle of electric light is in its infancy. The person who controls the means to turn night into day will make history–and a vast fortune. A young untested lawyer named Paul Cravath, fresh out of Columbia Law School, takes a case that seems impossible to win. Paul’s client, George Westinghouse, has been sued by Thomas Edison over a billion-dollar question: Who invented the light bulb and holds the right to power the country?” (GoodReads)

If you would like to join in the discussion, you may stop by the library to obtain a copy of the book.

The Capital Crimes of Witchcraft

 

            Thanks to an award of funds from the NH Humanities to Go program, the library will present “The Capital Crimes of Witchcraft” with Margo Burns on Wednesday, October 18, at 7:00 p.m.

The program focuses on the Salem witchcraft trials of 1692 and 1693, when nineteen people were hanged and one crushed to death. However, Margo explores an array of prosecutions throughout Seventeenth Century New England, from arrest warrants, indictments of formal death charges, to reversals of excommunications years afterwards

Most interesting, Margo Burns is the 10th generation great-granddaughter of Rebecca Nurse who was hanged in Salem in 1692 on the charge of witchcraft.

We hope you will join us for what promises to be a most enlightening and interesting evening
