Coming Attractions: April 2024

This month, the library will be hosting three movie screenings in our Program Room. First up starting at 1 PM on Saturday, April 20, come see Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon. Based on David Grann’s nonfiction book of the same name, this film tells the story of the innocent members of the Osage Indigenous American tribe who suffered from a series of unusual, inexplicable murders in the 1920s. Though relegated to the margins of society, the case captured the attention of the FBI, which launched a large-scale investigation under the guidance of J. Edgar Hoover.

Killers of the Flower Moon was nominated for 10 awards at this year’s Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress (Lily Gladstone), Best Supporting Actor (Robert DeNiro), and Best Cinematography. It also stars Leonardo DiCaprio, John Lithgow, and Brendan Fraser. The film is rated R, and runs 3 hours & 30 minutes.

Then on Tuesday, April 23 at 6:30 PM and Thursday, April 25 at 2 PM, we’ll be screening Cord Jefferson’s American Fiction. Based on the novel Erasure by Percival Everett, this film tells the story of Thelonious “Monk” Ellison, whose career has stalled because his work isn’t deemed “Black enough.” Monk (Jeffrey Wright), a writer and English professor, writes a satirical novel under a pseudonym, aiming to expose the publishing world’s hypocrisies. The book’s immediate success forces him to get deeper enmeshed in his assumed identity and challenges his closely-held worldviews.

American Fiction won the award for Best Adapted Screenplay at this year’s Oscars, and was also nominated for Best Picture, Best Actor (Jeffrey Wright), and Best Supporting Actor (Sterling K. Brown). This film is rated R, and runs 2 hours.

All of these screenings are free and open to the public, with no registration required. The films will be played with English subtitles for the hard of hearing. Free popcorn will be served (while supplies last). Doors open 30 minutes before showtime.
