The Friends of the Thomaston Public Library presents the Friday Night Film Series, screening movies every week in the historic Thomaston Academy building, 60 Main St./Route 1. Parking and handicapped accessibility is in the rear of the building.

In June, the start time moves to 7 p.m. and the theme is 100 Years Ago: WWI. The month will open Friday, June 2, with “The Lost Battalion” (2001, USA/Luxembourg), a nonrated made-for-TV film that runs 100 minutes.

In October 1918, a battalion of the U.S. Army’s 77th Division penetrates deep into the Argonne Forest of France during the First World War. The battalion becomes surrounded and holds out for six long days, awaiting reinforcement and rescue — without food, water or reserve ammunition.

The series continues June 9 with “The Eagle & The Hawk” (1933, USA); June 16, “Behind the Lines” (1997, UK/Canada); June 23, “Paths of Glory” (1957, USA); and June 30, two episodes of the six-part British documentary “The Last Voices of the Great War” 2008, UK).

Friday Night Films are open to the public and free of charge, but donations are gratefully accepted. Light refreshments are served. For more information, call the library at 354-2453.
