All Library locations will be closed on Monday, May 30, for Memorial Day.
The 2014 edition of the long-running Off-the-Wall Film Series, co-presented by The Kansas City Public Library and The Pitch, features musically-themed titles from 1984.
The series kicks off with this perennially popular film about a city kid (Kevin Bacon) who moves to a small town where the local preacher (John Lithgow) has banned rock music and dancing. But this young man just can’t sit still — nor can audiences watching this movie.
Films are screened outside on the Rooftop Terrace. Filmgoers are welcome to bring blankets and folding chairs. In cases of inclement weather, screenings will be moved indoors to Helzberg Auditorium. This title is Rated R and is recommended for adult audiences only.
Co-sponsored by KC Bier Company, The Milwaukee Delicatessen Company, and the Independent Filmmakers Coalition of Kansas City
