THOMASTON — The Friends of the Thomaston Public Library presents a Friday Night Film Series, screening films weekly at 6:30 p.m. in Room 200 of the library, 60 Main St./Route 1 (entrance at the rear).

November 2019 is dedicated to Miss Marple/Murder movies, beginning Nov. 15 with “Murder She Said” (1961, UK). British national treasure Margaret Rutherford makes her first appearance as the famed Miss Marple in this sly, engaging mystery based on Agatha Christie’s “4:50 from Paddington.” Miss Marple sees a strangulation aboard a passing train, then follows a trail of baffling clues to manor house inhabited by a quarrelsome family. There, she takes a job as a domestic and discovers the strangled body. But no murderer is a match for Miss Marple.

The unrated film runs 81 minutes. Upcoming in the Miss Marple/Murder series are: Nov. 22, “Murder at the Gallop” (1963, UK); and Nov. 29, “Murder Ahoy” (1964, UK).

Friday Night Films are open to the public and free of charge, but donations are gratefully accepted. The Thomaston Academy Building is handicapped accessible from the rear entrance. For more information, call the library at 354-2453.
