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. November’s theme is Film Noir.
Next up is the Nov. 8 film "Roadhouse," a 95-minute film from 1948. Jefty (Richard Widmark) owns a roadhouse near the Canadian border that is managed by his buddy Pete (Cornel Wilde) and the cashier, Susie (Celeste Holm). After a trip to Chicago, Jefty brings back with him a sultry singer, Lily (Ida Lupino), with whom he is smitten. This melodrama of love, murder and revenge is a noir classic filled with suspense and high drama.
