The Friends of the Thomaston Public Library’s Movies on the Green summer series will feature the 2007 British-American romantic fantasy “Stardust” Saturday night, Aug. 2. Movies on the Green are shown on the wall of the old Maine State Prison, starting at sundown (a little after 8 p.m.)

“Stardust” boasts an all-star cast that includes Claire Danes, Robert DeNiro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ian McKellan, Peter O'Toole, Ricky Gervais and many, many others. The movie is about a young man living in a countryside town bordering on a magical land who makes a promise to his beloved that he will retrieve a fallen star by venturing into the enchanted realm.

Attendees should bring their own seats, blankets and bug spray. Popcorn and bottled water will be available for $1. In case of rain, the film will be shown the following Saturday.
