Free Films in February at the Main Library

Dayton Metro Library’s popular Sunday Movies @ Main series continues in February with four more out-of-the-ordinary films. All films are free and start at 1:30 p.m. in the Main Library’s Eichelberger Forum, 215 E. Third Street.

“Sunday Movies @ Main are overlooked masterpieces, classics, foreign films, indies or documentaries you aren’t likely to see elsewhere,” said Chuck Duritsch, External Relations Manager.


A Star is Born (1937)  | February 3
Before the Lady Gaga version, before Barbra Streisand, and before Judy Garland, there was this 1937 original starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March. Winner of Best Original screenplay and nominated for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Director at the Academy Awards.

Paper Moon (1973) | February 10
Directed by Peter Bogdanovich and starring Ryan O’Neil and his then-9-year-old daughter Tatum, this underappreciated film is full of laughs, full of heart, and filmed in gorgeous black and white. Winner of Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Tatum O'Neal); nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Madeline Kahn), and Best Adapted Screenplay.

My Brilliant Career (1979) | February 17
Critically acclaimed, winning six AFI Awards, as well as being nominated for an Academy Award, Golden Palm award, and Golden Globe award, My Brilliant Career is a delicate parable of one woman's fight for independence, and the sacrifices of the heart that must be made along the way.

Charlotte’s Web (1973) | February 24
E.B. White's beloved Newbery Honor-winning book comes to life in this classic animated musical. Featuring the voice talents of Debbie Reynolds, Henry Gibson and Paul Lynde. Winner of Best Feature Film at the Genesis Awards.


The Main Library’s Eichelberger Forum features flexible seating, a DLP Laser Projector and a 226” screen with 18.8-foot diagonal viewing space. Bring your own snacks.
