The 2016 reworking of “Pete’s Dragon” was filmed in New Zealand; the title character was created by Weta Digital, with traits modeled after cats, dogs and seagulls.

Union — Vose Library, 392 Common Road, offers a couple of movies the second weekend of the year. These programs are free and open to the public; for more information, call 785-4733.

On Saturday, Jan. 13, at 1 p.m., the library will screen “Pete's Dragon” (2016, USA). The award-winning film celebrates the adventures of an orphaned boy named Pete (Oakes Fegley) and his best friend Elliot, who just so happens to be a dragon. It is rated PG.

At 7 p.m. Saturday, with an encore screening Sunday, Jan. 14, at 1 p.m., Vose will offer “The Glass Castle” (2017, USA), which is rated PG-13. A young girl (Brie Larson plays the adult Jeannette Walls) comes of age in a dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads including a mother (Naomi Watts) who's an eccentric artist; and an alcoholic father (Woody Harrelson) who stirs his children's imagination with hope as a distraction to their poverty.
