From books to big screen at Camden library

Jul 08, 2019

CAMDEN — The Camden Public Library’s Monday Night Movie Series kicks off this summer in the Amphitheatre on Monday, July 15, at 8:30 p.m. with a film based on the young adult fantasy novel "Inkheart" by Cornelia Funke.

This family-friendly story is about about a teenage girl named Meggie and her father who has a special ability to literally bring characters to life when he reads aloud. The gift backfires when he accidentally summons a villain, who is reluctant to return to his literary realm. Bring blankets and chairs to comfortably enjoy this free film under the stars. This 2008 film is rated PG and  runs 1 hr., 46 min. The make-up date in case of rain is July 29.

The Camden Public Library, 55 Main St., will show three more films based on books in the Amphitheatre over the course of the summer: July 22, Mystery on the Orient Express; August 12, The Secret Garden; August 19, To Catch a Thief. Please see for details on the upcoming movies.
