December 5, 2010

More free library movies are headed your way to  temper the January chill!  Bring your own tub of popcorn, cheesy nachos and a thermos of hot apple cider - sit back and watch these coming attractions!

Tuesday, January 4 (6:30 p.m.) we'll feature a foreign film with English subtitles rated PG-13 about two young Palestinian men who are hours away from becoming suicide bombers in Tel Aviv.

On Saturday, January 8 we'll offer a kids' 10:30 a.m. matinee with your favorite green ogre who lands in an alternate version of  Far Far Away.  He must undo mischief and evil in the hopes of restoring his world and saving his friends.

Wednesday, January 12th's showing (6:30 p.m.) will feature a PG-rated film about a master sorcerer in modern-day Manhattan trying to defend the city from his arch-nemesis. He recruits an average-seeming guy who demonstrates potential as his protege. These unlikely partners work to stop the forces of darkness, save the city and get the girl.

Last will be a "School's Out Matinee" on Friday, January 21 (2:00 p.m.) -  a newly-released  animated film about two wolves who are captured and sent to  Idaho as part of a repopulation project. They struggle through dangers to get home with a growing mutual admiration that promises to complicate the social structure of their original wolf packs.

All movies will be shown at the Wausau HQ Library in the Third Floor Wausau Room.  Refreshments are available for purchase on site, or bring your own (non-alcoholic).  For actual titles call the library at 261.7200.
