The Friends of the Thomaston Public Library presents the Friday Night Film Series, screening movies every week at 7 p.m. 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 theme is 100 Years Ago: WWI. The month continues Friday, June 9, with “The Eagle & The Hawk” (1933, USA), a nonrated film that runs 68 minutes. The pilots of a Royal Air Force squadron in World War I face not only physical, but also mental dangers in their struggle to survive while fighting the enemy. This deeply moving anti-war film stars Frederick March, Cary Grant, Jack Oakie and Carol Lombard.

Upcoming this month are: 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.
