Tuesday, May 16 at 6:00pm the library will be showing the recently released film La La Land, starring Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds. Mia (Stone), an aspiring actress, serves lattes to movie stars in between auditions and Sebastian (Reynolds), a jazz musician, scrapes by by playing cocktail party gigs in dingy bars. But as success mounts, they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart. This homage to classic Hollywood musicals like Singin’ in the Rain is sure to please both young and old. No registration is required, and free popcorn and beverages will be provided. No cost.
