Christmas Abroad
Central Cinema Nights is a movie screening in the Central Library’s Durwood Film Vault taking place Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.  Join us as we watch and discuss documentaries and feature films in a socially conscious setting, chosen to fit a monthly theme. This month's theme: Christmas Abroad.

From heartwarming to outrageous, our December films cross borders into Canada, France, Finland, and Hungary for a peek at Christmas Abroad.  Come find out why it is so bizzarre that these four films share a spot under the tree.

A Christmas Tale (2008, NR)

When steely French matriarch Junon (Catherine Deneuve) learns she has leukemia, she asks her children and grandchildren at the family Christmas gathering to see if they are eligible to become bone marrow donors. This causes deep friction in the family, especially between Junon's daughter Elizabeth (Anne Consigny) and son Henri (Mathieu Amalric), who already have a tumultuous relationship. Their mother's sickness also recalls the traumatic loss of their brother Joseph when they were children.


Everyone is welcome! Movie screenings at the Central Library are always FREE and open to the public.

Upcoming Films:
December  5 Mon Oncle Antoine (1971, NR)
December 12 Rare Exports (2010, R)
December 19 A Christmas Tale (2008, NR)
