Sohier Room, Main Library

Amy Adams is an intergalactic linguist with a tricky job to do in 2016’s dazzling mind-bender, Arrival. Extraterrestrial life is paying us a visit, and seems to have something important to say…but how to crack the code?

Ridley Scott revived his beloved space-monster franchise, Alien, with Prometheus, a film set in the deepest, coldest cosmic wastes. Michael Fassbender anchors (or is that undermines?) a crew of men and machines as it seeks the origins of humanity—and maybe hastens its end.

June 28: The Hate U Give

Friday, June 28 from 1-3:30 PM
Sohier Room, Main Library

A white police officer, a black teenager; a traffic stop, a tragic death. The Hate U Give, based on the acclaimed novel by Angie Thomas, follows the fallout to deliver a riveting, ripped-from-the-headlines tale about race, class, and division in America—and how, just maybe, we can still make ourselves whole.

April 26: The Favourite

Sohier Room, Main Library

Olivia Colman’s killer, queer impression of the slightly mad, mostly sad Queen Anne won her this year’s Best Actress Oscar. Belying its opulent trappings, her petulant languour finds relief only in a menagerie of rabbits, a pesky war with France, and, above all, in the ferocious rivalry for the queen’s favour conducted by her two most trusted and beloved ladies. Stuff your face with free popcourn as you soak up the oddment and ornament! Questions? Contact Matthew at martens@noblenet.org.
