What Will We Be Seeing & Talking About in 2016?

Movie Picks for 2016 Logo

Many thanks to our guys for their outstanding work on forming our 2016 themes -- and the movies we will watch as part of these themes. There was a lot of thoughtful discussion, with everyone trying to make choices they felt the whole group would enjoy. The list below shows the month and theme order for all the films chosen. For the first time -- ever -- all of our 1st choices are covered by the library's public performance site licenses! No backups needed!
