1/5/2016 - Southbury Public Library Film Offers Escape from Winter

Southbury Public Library Film Offers Escape from Winter

Escape from winter on January 13th with a trip through a remarkable garden hidden in the heart of London. You’ll experience it in the Wednesday afternoon film being shown at Southbury Public Library that covers a year in the Buckingham Palace Garden, exploring its history as well as natural history.

England is also the setting for the film on January 20th but with a much different mood. It’s a powerful story of love, war and remembrance based on the World War I memoir of Vera Brittain. It has become a classic testimony of that war, seen through the eyes of a woman who went on to become an advocate for peace.

Winding up the month on January 27th is a light comedy from France (with English subtitles) about a veteran chef who faces off against the new CEO of his restaurant group. The CEO wants the establishment to lose a star from its Michelin rating in order to bring in a younger chef who specializes in molecular gastronomy.

All the films begin at 1:00 PM in the Kingsley Meeting room surround sound theater, with infrared listening system available. Because of licensing and copyright agreements, the Library cannot list the titles of the films. They are offered free to the public by Friends of the Southbury Public Library, with the videos provided by Connecticut Libraries. For further information, call the Library at 203-262-0626.
