Every Wednesday in September except the first, the Southbury Public Library will be screening movies at 1:00PM in the Kingsley Room of the Southbury Public Library. These films are open to the public, free to attend, and require no registration.
Wednesday afternoon movies at Southbury Public Library begin this month on September 12th with a comedy about four middle-aged women, lifelong friends in different stages of marital and post-marital life, whose lives change forever after they read Fifty Shades of Grey. From discovering new romance to rekindling old flames, the women, played by Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, and Mary Steenburgen, inspire each other to make their next life chapter the best.
On September 19th it’s a documentary about Mister Fred Rogers. This moving film gives us an intimate look at a man we all think we know, taking us beyond the zip-up cardigans and make-believe into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with his compassion and limitless imagination.
The September 26th film is a feel-good drama about a widowed father and his teenage daughter who form an unlikely songwriting team during the summer before she leaves for college. When one of their songs becomes an online success, it complicates attempts by the father (Nick Offerman) to let go his dream of stardom and allow his daughter (Kiersey Clemens) to find her own path in life. The cast includes Ted Danson, Toni Collette and Blythe Danner.
Because of licensing and copyright agreements, the Library cannot list titles of the films. Offered free to the public, they are sponsored by Friends of the Southbury Public Library. They begin at 1:00 PM in the Kingsley meeting room surround sound theater, with infrared listening system available and closed captioning.
