The Friends of the Thomaston Public Library continues its series of films in Room 208 of the Thomaston Academy Building, 60 Main St./Route 1. The weekly films are hosted by movie maven Erika Pfander.

The Friday night movies for July showcase the work of Woody Allen. The next in the series will be “Broadway Danny Rose” July 16 at 6:30 p.m.

Allen plays the title character, a two-bit Manhattan theatrical agent with a client list only a freak show promoter could love. His “ace in the hole,” though, is sonorous crooner Lou Canova (Nick Apollo Forte). To assuage Lou’s titanic ego (and keep him as a client), Woody must escort the singer’s mistress, Tina (Mia Farrow), to Lou’s club dates. One mishap follows another in this gem of a comedy.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the Hallway Books bookshop will be open in the hallway of the first floor. Admission is free, but donations are appreciated. All screenings begin 6:30 p.m.

The building is handicapped accessible via the elevator off the parking lot. For more information, call the library at 354-2453.
