Launching into November, the list of free films that will touch down at the Jefferson County Library Film Center has been released: reaching into the past with "The Philadelphia Story," screening a more recent release with "The Book of Henry," and jumping into a proud moment in U.S. history with "Apollo 11."
Up first, "The Book of Henry," (PG13) will be shown the first Friday of the month, Nov. 1. The film follows a single mother who, with careful instructions from her genius son's notebook, sets out to help the girl next door, whose family harbors a dark secret.
The documentary, "Apollo 11," (G) graces the screen, Nov. 8, bringing the 1969 mission to the moon to life for viewers, as Neil Armstrong and pilots Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins lead an account of the story.
The third film, "The Philadelphia Story," released in 1940, boasts silver screen legends Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn and James Stewart in a romantic comedy in which a socialite is about to remarry, when her ex-husband, a tabloid-like reporter shows up, setting the stage for calamity.
All films begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Rodriguez Annex, at 134 SE E St. Refreshments are available. For more information, visit the library website at jcld.org, or call 541-475-3351.
