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 writer, director and actor Woody Allen. The final in the series will be “Radio Days” July 30 at 6:30 p.m.

Allen’s Oscar-nominated comedy set in 1940s Brooklyn draws heavily on his youth – a time when radio was king. Through vignettes woven together by music from the era, the film focuses on young Joe (Seth Green) and his houseful of relatives. His father (Michael Tucker) craves news from Europe; his aunt (Dianne Wiest) is obsessed with marriage; and his mother (Julie Kavner) is appalled that Joe has bought a secret decoder ring.

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.
