Due to the Veterans Day holiday, Thomaston Public Library’s Friday Night Film Series will have its next screening Monday, Nov. 14, at 6:30 p.m. in Room 200 of the Thomaston Academy building, 60 Main St./Route 1. The series is presented by Friends of the Thomaston Library; November’s movies feature Katharine Hepburn.

On Nov. 14, the film will be “A Woman Rebels” (1936, USA), a nonrated film that runs 88 minutes. The story revolves around Pamela (Hepburn), a woman in late-1800s England who has no intention of marriage and wishes to be her own person. After difficulty in finding a job, she finally lands a position at a "woman's magazine.” When the editor becomes ill, she moves the magazine into discussing issues of gender equality, child labor, medical care and employment.

Rejecting the social mores of Victorian England all the way through the film, Hepburn’s character finds herself as the unexpected leader of a movement. “A Woman Rebels” also stars Herbert Marshall and Donald Crisp; and includes the screen debut of Van Heflin.

This month’s series continues Nov. 18 with “The African Queen” (1951, USA/UK); and Nov. 25 with “Love Among the Ruins” (1975, UK-TV).

Friday Night Films are open to the public and free of charge, but donations are gratefully accepted. The Thomaston Academy Building is handicapped accessible from the rear entrance, where there is plenty of parking; and light refreshments will be served. For more information, call the library at 354-2453.
