TIFF Film Circuit movies have been confirmed

“Maudie” to be screened on Sept 2.

We finally have confirmation on the first three movies that will make up part of the 2017-2018 Film Circuit. Our first movie will be shown on Monday, Sept. 4, at 7 p.m. at the Jewel Theatre. And it is … “Maudie.”

It is Marshalltown, Nova Scotia, 1937 and Maud Dowley is stuck living with her unsympathetic aunt. Desperate to break away, she responds to a local fish peddler’s call for a housekeeper. Everett Lewis is disagreeable and initially cruel to Maudie, but the two quickly acknowledge that each is in their own way a social outcast. They need and understand each other. Within weeks, they marry. One day a summer resident comes calling. She sees something in Maudie’s paintings and commissions one. Suddenly Maudie’s pastime is recognized as having real value. People come from far and wide. Eventually her work will hang in the White House.

October’s movie is “The Big Sick” and will be shown Monday, Oct. 2 and November’s film is “The Glass Castle” and will be on the big screen on Monday, Nov. 6. We are still awaiting confirmation for December’s film. Passes for the first four films are available to be purchased at the library for $35, for all eight movies $70 and at the door for $10 per movie.

We have only more Wednesday in which you can take part in Drop-In Basketball with Andrew. Meet up at the library at 2 p.m. and, together, you will walk down to the court for some one-on-one, or two-on-two, or three-on-three! This is a slam dunk of fun (yes, I know it’s bad).

For our last family event of the Summer Reading Program, the Stettler Public Library is pleased to present Mullen the Magician on Wednesday, Aug. 23 at 2 p.m. Everyone is welcome, so bring all the people that you know to the magical event and be prepared to be mystified!

If you would like more information about our Summer Reading Program events, or to register for the events listed, please call 403-742-2292.
