Thomaston — Friends of the Thomaston Public Library presents its Friday Night Film Series with screenings Fridays at 6:30 p.m. in the community room of Thomaston Public Library in the Thomaston Academy Building, 60 Main St./Route 1. The theme for January's movies is Comedies of Yesteryear.

The Jan. 25 film is "The Talk of the Town," a 118-minute film from 1942. The dashing Cary Grant stars as Leopold, an activist wrongly imprisoned for a crime he did not commit. To avoid execution, Leopold breaks out of jail and takes a job as a gardener for a teacher named Nora (Jean Arthur). Nora's other houseguest (Ronald Colman) is a legal scholar who learns Leopold's true identity. His two new friends end up helping him find justice — and perhaps even love. The film earned seven Oscar nods, including Best Picture.

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