The Library Arts Center is thrilled to present a series of films made during, or inspired by our founding decade–the 1960’s! The series will present two films per month–one geared toward adult audiences, and one toward family audiences. The series will run April through October.
Here’s a link with a sneak peek at our first FAMILY FILM in the series this year: The Jungle Book (1967) In this classic Walt Disney animation based on Rudyard Kipling’s book, Mowgli, an abandoned child raised by wolves, has his peaceful existence threatened by the return of the man-eating tiger Shere Khan (George Sanders). Facing certain death, Mowgli must overcome his reluctance to leave his wolf family and return to the “man village.” But he is not alone on his quest: Aided by Bagheera the panther, and later by the carefree bear Balloo (Phil Harris), he braves the jungle’s many perils.
Here’s a link with a sneak peep to our next film on May 4th: Goldfinger! Special agent 007 (Sean Connery) comes face to face with one of the most notorious villains of all time, and now he must outwit and outgun the powerful tycoon to prevent him from cashing in on a devious scheme to raid Fort Knox — and obliterate the world’s economy.
All films will be shown in the Library Arts Center Gallery
