Join us on December 12 at 10am for Reel Talk and enjoy a free showing of The Third Man with discussion.
Based on Graham Greene’s mystery novella, The Third Man has Joseph Cotton traveling to postwar Vienna to take a job with old friend Harry Lime, a black market opportunist. Cotton discovers that Harry, played by Orson Welles, has been murdered. Or has he?
Released in 1949, this film was shot on location in a crumbling, corrupt and politically sector-divided Vienna. It has become a classic example of British film-noir with its atmospheric cinematography and musical score. The music employs only an unaccompanied zither, and its haunting sound sets the perfect tone for this shadowy thriller.
Dennis Vaughn, Toledo resident and film buff, will be the special guest speaker. This is a free event and refreshments will be provided. This event is sponsored by Master Chemical.
At 10:30 am on December 19th the library will show "Romancing the River: A Maumee Love Story". This episode of "Toledo Stories" features Steve Pollick, former Outdoors Editor for The Blade, and his team as they paddle the entire length of the Maumee River – four days and 122.8 miles from Fort Wayne to downtown Toledo.
Their "Fort to Port" adventure is chronicled in this compelling and beautiful film, produced by Lou Hebert. The showing is free and refreshments will be provided.
Our next Reel Art showing, featuring The Butterfly, will be held on December 20 at 7pm. This series is especially for international and art film fans.
In French with English subtitles, this is the touching story of an unlikely friendship between Julien, an elderly entomologist, and his neighbor Elsa, the beguiling only child of an inattentive young mother. Julien’s well-planned excursion to find the rare and elusive “Isabella” butterfly takes an unexpected turn when he discovers that Elsa has surreptitiously invited herself along with him. As the odd pair hike through the scenic Alpine hills and experience the wonders of nature together, their friendship blooms. When Elsa’s mother notices her daughter is missing, however, the tension escalates, while in the wilderness, Elsa has become separated from Julien. This engaging film imparts its life lesson with humor, warmth and tenderness.
This is a free event and refreshments will be provided.
Veterans have served our country with honor and sacrifice, insuring our freedoms as a nation. This exhibit is a venue for their artistic expression in the visual and literary arts.
