Woods Hole Public Library: Movie Night
January 15 @ 2:00 pm
The library will show a very popular new film on the afternoon of Wednesday, January 15 at 2 p.m. Due to the “lease for public viewing of major motion pictures” which the library holds (and tries to abide by), the title of the film cannot be named in articles about the event. However, suffice it to say that a huge number of people watching historical fiction on PBS TV have been addicted to this story for almost ten years. Viewers eagerly awaited the next in the series to find out what troubles the titled family had gotten themselves into and how they were able to cope with major changes in the social structure of England in the years following the turn of the century into the 1900’s. Now the story has been converted into a major film (of the same name as the PBS series, eponymous with the family’s home estate) featuring many of the same actors as the series. The film has been eagerly awaited by fans and has just been released. To celebrate, the library is preceding the film with a tea party with fine china, a spot of tea, and delicious (historic) treats. People should feel free to get in the spirit and don their finery from the late Victorian or Edwardian eras (even garments from the teens, if they dare). The Tea Shop will open at 1 p.m., and the film will start at 2 p.m. Attending the movie is free, but there will be a small suggested donation for treats to benefit the library. For more information and to verify the title (if there’s a question) call the library at (508) 548-8961.
