Thomaston — Friends of the Thomaston Public Library presents its Friday Night Film Series with screenings weekly at 6:30 p.m. in the community room of Thomaston Public Library in the Thomaston Academy Building, 60 Main St./Route 1. February’s theme is The Affair of Love.

In “Sleepless in Seattle,” screened Feb. 7, fate and a tenacious 8-year-old boy conspire to unite lovelorn widower Sam Baldwin (Tom Hanks) and unhappily engaged journalist Annie Reed (Meg Ryan). The 1993 Oscar-nominated romantic comedy was inspired by the 1957 classic “An Affair to Remember,” which in turn was inspired by the 1939 classic “Love Affair.” Rosie O’Donnell and Bill Pullman also star. The film runs 105 minutes and is rated PG.

Upcoming this month are: Feb. 14, “Love Affair” (1939, USA); Feb. 21, “It Happened One Night” (1934, USA); and, Feb. 28, “40 Carats” (1973, USA). Friday Night Films are open to the public and free of charge, but donations are gratefully accepted. Light refreshments will be served.
