The downtown Camden Public Library will continue its Sunday Movie Matinee Series March 28 and April 18. The series is growing in popularity and will continue through the spring on occasional Sundays.

On Sunday, March 28, “Resurrection” will be screened at 2:30 p.m. The 1980 PG-rated film runs 103 minutes and stars Ellen Burstyn and Sam Shepard. Is it possible to be a faith healer without any faith? Edna McCauley (Burstyn) experiences the afterlife for a brief time after a car accident that kills her husband. As she begins her long process of physical healing, Edna discovers that she has the ability to heal the physical infirmities of both herself and others. Since Edna does not place the healings within a religious context, she is both revered and reviled. This movie was nominated for two Oscars, including a Best Actress for Burstyn.

On Sunday, April 18, the series will offer “Master and Commander” at 2:30 p.m., chosen for the library’s Maritime Month for its quality and authenticity. The 2003 PG-13 film runs 138 minutes and is adapted from three novels in the Aubrey-Maturin series by Patrick O’Brian. The film was nominated for 10 Academy Awards including Best Picture and won in two categories, Best Cinematography and Sound Effects Editing. The film is noted for its unmatched portrayal of sailing life in the British navy and seamanship on the part of Captain Aubrey.

The screenings are free, but donations will be gladly accepted.
