Thomaston Public Library’s Friday Night Film Series continues Nov. 18 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. 18, the film will be “The African Queen” (1951, USA/UK), a nonrated classic that runs 105 minutes. Charlie Allnut (Humphrey Bogart), the booze-guzzling, rough-hewn captain of a broken-down East African riverboat, teams with a straitlaced, iron-willed missionary (Hepburn) to take on a menacing German gunboat during World War I. A classic study in star charisma and pitch-perfect casting, “The African Queen” was nominated for four Oscars (Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay), with Bogart winning his sole Academy Award.

This month’s series concludes 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. For more information, call the library at 354-2453.

The Thomaston Academy Building is handicapped accessible from the rear entrance, where there is plenty of parking; and light refreshments will be served.
