The Friends of the Thomaston Public Library presents a series of Friday night films in Room 208 of the Thomaston Academy building, 60 Main St./Route 1. The movies for December are dubbed Christmas Classics.

The second film of the series, “A Christmas Memory,” will be screened Friday, Dec. 10 at 6:30 p.m.

In this award-winning television adaptation of an autobiographical story by Truman Capote, Eric Lloyd plays Buddy who, at age 7, is dumped by his parents at the home of some elderly spinster relations. Luckily for Buddy, he becomes fast friends with one of them, embarking on a series of adventures in the Depression-era rural South.

Patty Duke and Piper Laurie co-star in this charmingly nostalgic tale. “A Christmas Memory” is nonrated and was filmed in 1997.

Admission is free but donations are appreciated. The building is handicap accessible via the elevator off the parking lot in back; call the library at 354-2453 for further information.

Doors will open at 6 p.m., when the Hallway Books bookshop will be open in the hallway of the first floor. This month’s series will conclude Dec. 17 with “It’s a Wonderful Life.”
