Starting October 10th and running through Halloween the Central Library is pleased to present Terror Tuesdays: Creature Features! Each Tuesday we'll show a different film with a different terrifying creature.
This action-driven film is both clever and just plain fun to watch. Starring Harrison Ford as a university professor who is also an adventurer on the side seeking ancient artifacts for museums. His daring hearkens back to the swashbuckling adventure films of the 30's. No matter how many times you've seen it, it's still a fun film to see.
The Vietnam War has provided fertile ground for filmmakers for more than 50 years. Amid the fall 2017 Big Read KC, the Kansas City Public Library screens four of the most important big-screen studies of the war and its impact on American society as judged by filmmaker, screenwriter, and University of Missouri-Kansas City associate professor Mitch Brian. All are shown in the Central Library’s lower-level Stanley H. Durwood Film Vault.
To celebrate the spookiest night of the year we will be screening Poltergeist on Halloween Night! Poltergeist is our final creature feature film - the classic tale of a family's home haunted by a host of ghosts.
Please join is in the Durwood Film Vault. We promise not to lock you in...
