Sunday December 10th, 2017 Movie Nights @ Your Library

Are you looking for a fun night or afternoon out? Then come to the Thunder Bay Public Library for our movie screenings! We’ve got nine really fun movies lined up for your viewing enjoyment over the next five months at either the Brodie Resource Library or the Waverley Resource Library. We’re even going to have a double feature during the holidays!

First up: on Thursday, December 21st you’re invited to watch The Polar Express. This is the magical train adventure that a young boy takes to the North Pole, based off of Chris Van Allsberg’s children’s book. That’ll be in the Waverley Auditorium at 6pm.

On Wednesday, December 27th, everyone is invited to our double feature of Home Alone and Home Alone 2! Home Alone is the story of an eight year old boy who is accidentally left behind when his family goes on a Christmas vacation. Home Alone 2 takes place a year later when that same boy gets lost in New York City. They’ll both be in the Brodie Story Hour Room. Home Alone is playing at 3pm, Home Alone 2 at 6:30pm. And don’t worry if you can’t make it to both - you are very welcome to sit in for whichever one you can.

On Saturday, January 20th we’ve got Mr. Peabody and Sherman. This animated film features the two classic characters from Rocky and Bullwinkle in an adventure to fix a time rift they accidentally created. Mr. Peabody and Sherman will be playing in the Waverley Auditorium at 2:30pm.

On Friday, January 26th, teens are invited to Brodie for The Princess Bride. A former farm girl is chosen to be the bride of a prince; she is kidnapped to start a war with a neighbouring country. This is the classic movie full of “fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles…” The Princess Bride will be playing in the Brodie Story Hour Room at 2:30pm.

On Saturday, February 10th everyone is invited to come and watch The Boss Baby. In this cute animated film based off the picture book by Marla Frazee, a suit-wearing baby has to team up with his older brother to stop the CEO of Puppy Co. That’ll be playing in the Waverley Auditorium at 12:30pm.

On Friday, March 16th, teens are invited to Brodie for Raiders of the Lost Ark, the very first Indiana Jones movie. The archeologist and adventurer has to find the Ark of the Covenant before his rival, who is working for the Nazis. That’ll be in the Brodie Story Hour Room at 2:00pm.

On Friday, April 27th, teens are invited to come to Brodie for Grease, the classic movie about lovers from different social circles who try to make their romance work. Sandy is a good girl and Danny is a greaser; they fell in love over the summer and thought the romance was over until they find themselves in the same high school. That’ll be playing in the Brodie Story Hour Room at 2:30pm.

On Saturday, April 28th, everyone is welcome to come and watch Coraline. In this 3D stop-motion film based off the children’s novel by Neil Gaiman, Coraline discovers an idealized parallel world with dark secrets and has to escape. That’ll be playing in the Waverley Auditorium at 2:30pm.

So that’s our current lineup of movies between now and the end of April. I hope you’ll come and join us!
