The Friday Night Movies from the Thomaston Public Library are shown on Fridays at 6:30 p.m. in Room 200 of the Thomaston Academy Building, 60 Main Street / Route 1. The series is presented by the Friends of the Thomaston Library .
This month’s Irish Lives theme ends on March 23 with “The Secret of Roan Inish” (1993, US / Ireland). Fiona (Jeni Courtney) is a young Irish girl with an unusual family background, including a long-missing little brother. When she moves to live with her grandparents on the west coast of Ireland, Fiona hears stories about her ancestors, stories involving mythical creatures called selkies that can go from seal form to human form. After Fiona finds herself on the tiny island of Roan Inish, her family’s ancestral home, she thinks she may have found her little brother… living by the sea.
“The Secret of Roan Inish” is rated PG-13 and lasts 103 minutes. There will be no screening on March 30. Friday night movies are open to the public and free, but donations are gratefully accepted.
The Thomaston Academy building is accessible to people with disabilities from the rear entrance, where there is plenty of parking; and light refreshments will be served. For more information, call the library at 354-2453.
