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 month’s final film June 24 is “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”. On a serene New England campus, emasculated professor George (Richard Burton) and his rancorous wife, Martha (Elizabeth Taylor), turn an evening of cocktails into an unrelenting onslaught of wrenching disclosures and bellowed epithets. Soon, the couple’s guests — junior professor Nick (George Segal) and his wife, Honey (Sandy Dennis) — get  sucked into the vortex of the warring duo’s unbounded fury.

Taylor and Dennis both won Oscars for their portrayals, and the film won five Academy Awards in all. The nonrated “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” was filmed in 1966 and runs 131 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.
