The Library’s summer series of outdoor movies—focusing on strangers cast into strange, through-the-looking-glass lands—kicks off with this dark fantasy classic directed by Monty Python member Terry Gilliam. A young boy joins a band of six renegade dwarves on a breakneck, time-travel trek through history, encountering an assortment of historical figures including a powerful Agamemnon (Sean Connery) and a stuffy Robin Hood (Python headliner John Cleese).
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.
