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.

July’s theme is Music is Ageless, opening July 7 with “Young@Heart” (2007, UK), a PG-rated film that runs 107 minutes. “Young@Heart” documents the final weeks of rehearsal for a senior citizen chorus in Northampton, Mass., whose average age is 81 and many of whom must overcome health adversities to participate. Their music is unexpected, going against the stereotype of their age group — performing songs, for example, by James Brown and Sonic Youth. Although they have toured Europe and sang for royalty, this account focuses on preparing new songs. It is not an easy endeavor, for it is a concert in their hometown.

Upcoming this month are: July 14, “That Thing You Do!” (1996, USA); July 21, “The Chorus” (2004, France/Switzerland/Germany); and, July 28, “The Last of the Blonde Bombshells” (2000, USA/UK-TV). 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.
