Movie Magic

What could be better than relaxing with some friends and watching a movie in a lovely theatre?  Sounds pretty good, eh?  Now what if that movie was free?  Well,  things just got even better!  Here at the JMCPL, we host no-cost Movie Nights and Movie Matinees in the Mahon Auditorium.  Just follow the signs downstairs to take advantage of this free service and enjoy some cinematic storytelling.  We screen a wide range of films so there’s something for everyone (just make sure to check the rating first – we adhere to NFB regulations).  Check this page or the calendar on the Tween and Teen programming page to find out what’s playing.  See you at the movies!
