Free Films in APRIL at the Main Library

Dayton Metro Library’s popular Sunday Movies @ Main series continues in April with 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, unless otherwise noted.


April 7 - THE FLORIDA PROJECT (2017)
Set on a stretch of highway in a budget motel just outside the imagined utopia of Disney World, The Florida Project follows six-year-old Moonee and her rebellious mother over the course of a single defining summer. Willem Dafoe was nominated for an Oscar, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA for his performance as hotel manager Bobby. Nominated for Best Director and Best Feature at the Film Independent Spirit Awards. Official Selection at the Cannes Film Festival.

April 14 - PURPLE NOON (1960)
This ripe, colorful adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's vicious novel The Talented Mr. Ripley, directed by the versatile Rene Clement, stars Alain Delon as Tom Ripley, a duplicitous American charmer in Rome on a mission to bring his privileged, devil-may-care acquaintance Philippe Greenleaf back to the United States. What initially seems a carefree tale of friendship soon morphs into a thrilling saga of seduction, identity theft, and murder. Featuring gorgeous location photography of coastal Italy. In French with English subtitles.

April 21 Library Closed for Easter

April 28 - LAST MEN IN ALEPPO (2017)
(Showing in the Bassani Theater, 3rd Floor)
A 2018 Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary Feature, Syrian filmmaker Feras Fayyad's breathtaking work – a searing example of boots-on-the-ground reportage – follows the efforts of the internationally recognized White Helmets; ordinary citizens who are the first to rush toward military strikes in the hope of saving lives. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for World Cinema-Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival.

"This heartbreaking yet inspiring film is the best and worst of humanity all in one story." - Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune.
