I think the way we show movies at the Liverpool Public Library is pretty cool.
We have a big screen in the Carman Community Room.
Fairly comfortable chairs.
Popcorn and beverages at no charge. And did I mention that there are no ticket-takers. Yes, the movies are free of admission charges as well.
I went down to the CCR Tuesday to take photos of the crowd at an afternoon performance of Now You See Me 2.
The patrons were enjoying that classically packaged popcorn, assuredly.
This adventure-thriller-mystery was part of the Newly Released Movies Series. They run once a month, with two showings. The afternoon screening, always on a Tuesday starting at 1:30 p.m., includes closed-captioning for the hearing impaired. There are also headsets available for anybody who requests one. The evening screening, always on a Thursday at 6:30 p.m., does not include the closed-captioning. That’s the way patrons prefer it.
The LPL.org schedule includes three other series: Foreign and Independent Films on Monday evenings, Movies Based on Books on Friday evenings and a Family Movie that rotates days. The movies are all out on Blu-Ray or DVD. That’s the format used to show them at the LPL.
Chinese film Coming Home screens at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow. It will have English subtitles.
Ghostbusters: Answer the Call screens at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 13, and 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 15. I thought in this sequel, Kate McKinnon’s work overshadowed more established stars Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig.
If you live around these parts and haven’t visited on movie day or night yet, come on by.
