Film Fridays at Cedarbrae
In case you haven't heard the news, Cedarbrae Library has started playing movies on the second Friday night of each month.
Started, you ask? Hasn't Cedarbrae has been playing movies for ages? Well, yes, but mainly for children's and teens. Film Fridays is geared towards our adult and senior patrons. These movies are all award winning or nominated, and many of them are rated PG13 or 14A (children are still welcome with parental permission, of course).
Another plus? All of the films are recent ones that typically have long hold/waiting lists. Here's your chance to skip the line!
Past films have included Crazy Stupid Love, Water for Elephants, The Help,and Hereafter.
Come join us for the next upcoming set of films:
