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 16, with  “Behind the Lines” (1997, UK/Canada), an R-rated movies that runs 114 minutes. During the First World War, the most enormously destructive conflict the world had ever seen, thousands died every week. This film is the critically acclaimed, emotionally electrifying story of war’s devastating impact on a group of WWI soldiers — a stirring and articulate exploration of warfare and its emotional and mental consequences.

Still to come this month are: 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.
