WINCHENDON — On Thursday, Sep.12 at 6 p.m., the Beals Memorial Library will kick off its fall movie schedule with a screening of the film, “The Public.” The event is free and open to the public.

The film centers around an act of civil disobedience that turns into a standoff with police when homeless people in Cincinnati take over the public library to seek shelter from the bitter cold. Movie critic Jeffery M. Anderson says, “Writer/director/star Emilio Estevez achieves a career high with this empathetic look at homelessness, concentrating on a rousing, inspiring story, rich characters, and a fluid, detailed visual style.” The film is rated PG-13.

Other movie screenings for the month of September include the documentary film, “The Biggest Little Farm” on Thursday, Sept. 19 at 6 p.m.; a 1:30 p.m., Classic Movie Matinee showing of “The Grapes of Wrath” on Wednesday, Sept. 25; on Thursday Sept. 26 at 6 p.m. the library will feature the film, “Dark Phoenix,” for teens; and on Saturday, Sept. 28 at 11 a.m., the library will screen the family film, “Detective Pikachu.”

The Beals Library is located at 50 Pleasant St. For more information, call 978-297-0300.
