Thomaston — Friends of the Thomaston Public Library presents its Friday Night Film Series with screenings weekly at 6:30 p.m. in the community room of Thomaston Public Library in the Thomaston Academy Building, 60 Main St./Route 1. January’s theme has been Laughter: the best medicine.

This month's series will wrap with the Jan. 31 film "Hopscotch," a 104-minute film from 1980. Miles Kendig (Walter Matha), one of the CIA's top international operatives, is suddenly relegated to a desk job in an agency power play. Unwilling to go quietly, Kendig begins writing a memoir that exposes the secrets of every intelligence agency in the world. Matthau and Glenda Jackson make for a perfect pairing in this delightfully entertaining film.

Friday Night Films are open to the public and free of charge, but donations are gratefully accepted. Light refreshments will be served. The Thomaston Academy building is handicapped accessible from the rear entrance. For more information, call the library at 354-2453.
