Market Street Matinees

James V. Brown Library will be offering Market Street Matinees.

Showing classic films in a comfortable environment on a big screen with high quality sound has become a regular event since 2009.

Run by dedicated volunteers, Market Street Matinees run year round with different monthly themes.

Now that the 2013 Academy Awards have been presented at the 85th awards show, and the winners revealed, Market Street Matinees at the library honors the Oscars in March with a series of eclectic and interesting films that won Oscars in a variety of categories.

Come and experience Oscar with Gary Cooper, Ingrid Bergman, Bing Crosby and Barbara Streisand, among others.

Movies show at 2 p.m. every Tuesday.

Matinees are free and open to the public, and show in the Lowry Theatre on the third floor of the Welch Wing.

Bring a lunch or pick up snacks from the vending machines.

For more information on specific movies call 326-0536, sign up for the weekly email newsletter by using the Quick Link on the Brown website, or stop in the library and pick up a flyer.

The entertaining opportunity at the James V. Brown Library is part of the statewide literacy initiative of PA Forward, helping libraries build communities one person at a time.
