Friday Night Flicks Presents: The Five-Year Engagment

Five-Year Engagement movie posterFriday, October 5th at 6:00 p.m. in the Community Room

Due to a change in release dates, we will be screening The Five-Year Engagement instead of Moonrise Kingdom this Friday.

The director and writer/star of Forgetting Sarah Marshall reteam for the irreverent comedy The Five-Year Engagement. Beginning where most romantic comedies end, the film looks at what happens when an engaged couple, Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, keeps getting tripped up on the long walk down the aisle. Rated R.


Tuesday, October 16th, 10:00–11:00 a.m. or 1:30–2:30 p.m. in the Children’s Program Room

Something new – just for Kindergartners. This month's theme is Awesome Apples! What can we do with apples? Read about them, cook with them, taste them, paint with them and maybe more.

Join retired Kindergarten teacher Mrs. Stowe for a fun-filled hour celebrating our favorite autumn fruit.
