New Release Documentary Movie Screening

It Happened But Nobody Noticed
Friday, September 11th at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room

Join us for a special screening of the documentary movie, It Happened but Nobody Noticed on Wallingford Public Library’s big screen. The film is by local film-maker Jerry Lombardo and charts the rise and rise of the Connecticut punk, rock and indie music scene. Full of live footage from the heyday punk years of ’78-’88, as well as lots of new interviews with featured musicians and scene-watchers, this movie is a must see event for anyone interested in the CT new wave music scene. Were you there? Did you notice? Perhaps you’ll appear in the crowd footage. Check out that hair!

The film is not rated, but is intended for adults due to theme and language. Refreshments will be served.

Friday Flicks Night Presents: I Love You, Man

Friday, August 21st at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

Engaged to the woman of his dreams yet uncomfortable with the prospect of not having a best man for his upcoming wedding, a successful real estate agent with no male friends schedules a series of "man dates" in hopes of finding a suitable candidate for the big day. Peter Klaven (Paul Rudd) is just like most other guys, only when it comes to making friends he's always been a bit withdrawn. After proposing to his girlfriend, Zooey (Rashida Jones), however, Peter quickly realizes that he doesn't even have any friends close enough to qualify for the role of best man. And what better method to find the perfect best man than to spend some time getting to know the most qualified candidate for the position?
