In the new free film series Movies That Matter, the Library’s film czar, Robert W. Butler, has programmed 20 films he deems essential to film literacy. They range from Citizen Kane  to Snow White .
But if we put you in the director's seat, what movies would you pick? Would you opt for pure enjoyment or aim for historic significance? Perhaps a bit of both?
Let us know: What are your Movies That Matter? Get creative, fire up your camcorder or webcam, and make your own video telling what movies you think everyone should see.
Post your video on YouTube and:
- Email it to us at email@example.com 
- Share it on Facebook and tag “The Kansas City Public Library”
- Tweet it to us @kclibrary 
We'll share your video on the Library's Facebook page, and who knows -- one of your picks may end up in MTM, round 2!
Take it away, Bob...
Movies that Matter show on SUNDAYS at 1:30 p.m. in Truman Forum Auditorium at the Plaza Branch .
