Monday Lunchtime Movies

MONDAY LUNCHTIME MOVIES | During the month of September, we will spotlight the classics at Leeds Jane Culbreth Library – Bring your lunch and join us in the meeting room from 11am – 1pm to catch these classic films.

◦Monday, September 12, 2022— Casablanca – (1942). Easy to enter, but much harder to leave, especially if you’re wanted by the Nazis. Such a man is Resistance leader Victor Laszlo, whose only hope is Rick Blaine, a cynical American who sticks his neck out for no one – especially Victor’s wife Ilsa, the ex-lover who broke his heart. Ilsa offers herself in exchange for Laszlo’s transport out of the country and bitter Rick must decide what counts more – personal happiness or countless lives hanging in the balance.

◦Monday, September 19, 2022— Breakfast at Tiffanys – (1961). A young New York socialite becomes interested in a young man who has moved into her apartment building, but her past threatens to get in the way.

◦Monday, September 26, 2022— Citizen Kane (1941). It’s not easy living up to the title of “best film ever made,” but Orson Welles’ depiction of a mad publishing billionaire really did remake an industry. Welles pioneered filmmaking techniques of deep focus and chiaroscuro lighting. He was inspired by the life story of publishing scion William Randolph Hearst, but
you’ll have to watch it to see what exactly “Rosebud” means.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
