CABIN FEVER FILMS 2024
YES, YOU'VE PROBABLY SEEM THESE CLASSICS, BUT YOU DIDN'T SEE THEM IN A NEW LIBRARY ROOM WITH COMFORTABLE CHAIRS, A BIG SCREEN, WITH POP CORN AND CIDER WITH FRIENDS ON A COLD, BLUSTERY WINTER DAY. BRING PILLOWS AND BLANKETS, BUT THIS IS NOT TO BE CONSIDERED A SLEEP-OVER.
EVERY OTHER THURSDAY AT 3:00. We received many good recommendations but could not show many. We must buy a license to show the films, and many are not covered. We will pass a basket for donations to help defray the cost of the license.
NOV 30 THE ENGLISH PATIENT A WW11 romance, drama set in North Africa. We will dedicate this film to our friend, Kathryn Rubeor who passed away 2021. She ran Bay Views B & B. She probably saw the film 50 times. Her son Marcus will make short remarks. 2 hours 42 minutes so bring supplies, if necessary, won many Academy Awards.
DEC 14 MOONSTRUCK 1988 romantic comedy with Cher and Nicholas Cage at their best. There are a least 5 different romances going on at the same time. Top that! 1 hour 45 minutes; won three Academy Awards.
DEC 28 NEBRASKA 2013 black and white with Bruce Dern, comedy drama about aging and family. 110 minutes
JAN 11 BELFAST Written and directed by Kenneth Branagh in black and white. 2021. I've seen it twice and enjoyed it more each time. Bittersweet but full of warmth and smiles and laughter. 1 hour 37 minutes.
JAN 25 SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE 1988 romantic comedy with lots of wit. Set in 1590 2 hours 42 minutes. Lavish!
FEB 8 RBG A documentary about Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 2018, 1 hour 38 minutes, won many awards.
FEB 22 CATHERINE CALLED BlRDY, 2022, Medieval romantic comedy, fun, odd mix of costumes, includes Andrew Scott, the sexy priest from Fleabag.
MAR 7 AS GOOD AS IT GETS Romantic comedy drama, many Academy awards; 1997; 137 minutes.
MAR 21 Start of a two-part movie, WAR SAILOR in Norwegian with subtitles about WW11 and Norway's merchant fleet. They lost half their ships. But it is the people who consistently rise above the usual pat outcomes that really inspire. Each part is 75 minutes and will be shown in one sitting with a popcorn break.
We need volunteers to show the movies!!!!!!!! It involves unlocking and locking the library and learning the really simple sequence to get the movie on the large screen. Staff can run you through both. Someone else will provide refreshments.
Please call Gretchen Mead, 733 8903 or qretchenmead123@qmaiI.com if you can help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
