French Movie Night – Amnesia

MV5BMTY2MjMzMzMyOV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNzc2OTY2NTE@._V1_UY268_CR8,0,182,268_AL_

Thursday, May 5, 6:00 (96 min.)

Ibiza, the early nineties, Jo is a twenty-five-year-old music composer. He has come over from Berlin and wants to be part of the nascent electronic music revolution, ideally by getting a job first as a DJ in the new nightclub on the island, Amnesia. Martha has been living alone in her house facing the sea for forty years. One night Jo knocks on her door. Her solitude intrigues him. They become friends even as the mysteries around her accumulate: that cello in the corner she refuses to play, the German language she refuses to speak… As Jo draws her into his world of techno music, Martha puts everything she had previously lived by into question.

Wednesday, May 4, 7:00 (106 min., PG13)

In early 20th-century Britain, the growing suffragette movement forever changes the life of working wife and mother Maud Watts (Carey Mulligan). Galvanized by political activist Emmeline Pankhurst (Meryl Streep), Watts joins a diverse group of women who fight for equality and the right to vote. Faced with increasing police action, Maud and her dedicated suffragettes must play a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse, risking their jobs, homes, family and lives for a just cause.

Spring Book Club – The Dressmaker by Rosalie Ham

dressmaker

Thursday, May 26, 7:00

After twenty years spent mastering the art of dressmaking at couture houses in Paris, Tilly Dunnage returns to the small Australian town she was banished from as a child. She plans only to check on her ailing mother and leave. But Tilly decides to stay, and though she is still an outcast, her lush, exquisite dresses prove irresistible to the prim women of Dungatar. Through her fashion business, her friendship with Sergeant Farrat—the town’s only policeman, who harbors an unusual passion for fabrics—and a budding romance with Teddy, the local football star whose family is almost as reviled as hers, she finds a measure of grudging acceptance. But as her dresses begin to arouse competition and envy in town, causing old resentments to surface, it becomes clear that Tilly’s mind is set on a darker design: exacting revenge on those who wronged her, in the most spectacular fashion.

Save Our Seats Fundraising Campaign

Save Our Seats Fundraising Campaign

John M. Cuelenaere Public Library prides itself in being able to show free movies to our patrons in the Mahon Auditorium! Unfortunately, our auditorium has seen better days. In order to continue showing movies to our patrons in comfort and style we’ve been slowly upgrading the space.

What we’ve done so far:

  • Upgraded our projector for crisper pictures.
  • Switched from small screen to a matte theatre quality paint on the wall, allowing for bigger projection space.
  • Upgraded to a Bluray player

What we plan to do with your help:

  • Replace the  old worn out seats with new, more comfortable ones!
  • Replace the carpeted areas!
  • Revamp the stage area to look more like a theatre stage.
  • Repaint the walls
