Paul Rudd first found acting success performing serious stuff like Shakespeare on the Broadway stage. But in recent years the Kansas City native has become a comedy icon, thanks to his regular gig on TV’s Friends and high-profile roles in big-screen hits from the likes of Judd Apatow.
Rudd has gone from stealing scenes as a supporting player to being the name above the title, and in 2013 the Library celebrates his career with Paul Rudd: Hometown Hero, this summer’s Off-the-Wall Film Series.
Most titles are recommended for adult audiences only.
All movies begin at 8:45 p.m. (or as soon as it’s dark enough) on the Rooftop Terrace of the Central Library. Feel free to bring blankets and folding chairs. (Note: The Central Library closes at 5 p.m. on Fridays, but the doors reopen at 8 p.m. for Off-the-Wall audiences.) Admission is free.
Free parking is also available at the Library District Parking Garage at 10th & Baltimore. Be sure to bring your parking ticket to have it validated.
