Saltwater Film Society will screen “The Village” Thursday, April 17, at 6:30 p.m. at Thomaston Public Library, in the Thomaston Academy building, 60 Main St./Route 1. Parking is located at the rear.

In a quiet, isolated village in Pennsylvania, inhabitants have reached an agreement with the creatures that reside in the surrounding woods: the townspeople do not enter the woods, and the creatures do not enter the village. This agreement is violated when Lucius Hunt seeks medical supplies from towns beyond the wood. Animal carcasses, devoid of fur, begin to appear around the village, causing the council of elders to fear for the safety of all. “The Village,” directed by M. Night Shyamalan, has a stellar cast that includes William Hurt, Sigourney Weaver, Joaquin Phoenix, Adrien Brody, Bryce Dallas Howard and Cherry Jones.

Admission is free. For more information about the Saltwater Film Society, visit
