The Friends of the Thomaston Public Library presents a weekly series of films in Room 208 of the Thomaston Academy Building, 60 Main St./Route 1. Summer screenings take place Fridays at 7 p.m. The movies for June offer a Tribute to Liz Taylor.

The film for June 10 is “A Place in the Sun.” Dirt­poor George Eastman (Montgomery Clift) lands himself a factory job thanks to a well­to­do uncle’s largesse and has a tryst with co-worker Alice (Shelley Winters) to combat his loneliness. But he forgets the uncultured Alice when he becomes smitten with a stunning socialite (Taylor). Alice cannot forget  George, however, because she is expecting his baby. Their dilemma sets off a course of events that can only end in tragedy.

The nonrated “A Place in the Sun” was filmed in 1951 and runs 122 minutes. Admission is free, but donations are appreciated. The Academy building is handicap accessible by the elevator off the parking lot in back. The Hallway Books bookshop on the first floor before each movie. For more information, call the library at 354- 2453.
