Cinematheque: “The Dancing Life”

Posted Oct 26, 2017 Posted by 2 Comments

The February 2018 theme for Cinematheque, Marathon Public Library’s free weekly film series, is “The Dancing Life.” All movies this month are romanticized visions of mankind’s dance with life. First up, on Wednesday, February 7, at 6 p.m., is “Pleasantville,” released in 1998. The remaining schedule is as follows: Wednesday, February 14, at 6 p.m., “The Purple Rose of Cairo”; Wednesday, February 21, at 6 p.m., “O Brother Where Art Thou?”; and Wednesday, February 28, at 6 p.m., “The Truman Show.” We’ll be showing all films on the large screen in our community room. As always…free (freshly popped!) popcorn will be served.

02|07 to Feb 28, 2018

    The 2018 Speakers’ Series, hosted by the Friends of the Marathon Library, will take place in the Parish hall of St. Columba Episcopal Church, located at 451 52nd St. Gulf in Marathon, on Thursday afternoons. The events begin at 1:30 p.m. with light refreshments, followed by the scheduled speaker at 2:00 p.m. Talks lasts about 45 minutes, with time after for questions. Admission is free and open to the public. This year’s series will kick off on January 11, 2018 with Miami Herald columnist Mansura Bashir Minhas.
