Coming Soon: More Movie Nights!

October 21, 2010

Is your wallet too pinched to take the whole family to the cinema?  Has cable exhausted your interest?  Is Netflix too slow?  Do you just want a cheap night out with friends?  If you answered "yes" to any of these, then our newest library service is for you - FREE IN-HOUSE MOVIES on a big screen!

At least twice a month we'll show newly-released DVD's or other movie genres in the Wausau HQ library in downtown Wausau.  Mark your calendars for these up-coming showings. Our license prohibits marketing outside the library  with titles so watch the BOLD PRINT below for clues:

Friday November 5 (2:00 matinee) - welcome Woody, Buzz and the whole gang back to the big screen  for this 3rd story as Andy prepares to depart for college and his loyal toys are sent to daycare! (Rated G, 86 min).

Wednesday, November 10 (6:30 pm) - in Japanese language with English sub-titles - experience a slice of early 20th Century American History; Asian brides are marketed via their pictures to marry immigrant plantation workers in Hawai'i. (Rated PG-13, 98 min).

Wednesday, December 8 (6:30 pm) - Jim Carrey plays four separate roles in this 2009 version of Charles Dickens' Christmas classic.  You'll be inspired to sing carols!

Wednesday, December 22 (6:30 pm) - Journalist Elizabeth Lane is one of America's most famous food writers; alas, her reputation is built on lies because she can't boil an egg.  Her boss decides that a sailor will spend an old-fashioned Christmas on her fiance's farm in Connecticut.  Let the antics begin! (NR).
