What is this "Film Club"?

The Crete Public Library Film Club is a group that meets every 3rd Thursday of the month to watch a film. We usually meet at 6:15 PM in the Large meeting room located on the second floor so we have plenty of room and access to the projector. We also have FREE coffee and tea courtesy of the library; anyone is welcome to bring snacks if they like, for themselves or to share (one of our regulars always brings cookies for the group!). At Film Club, the goal is to show films that you may not have seen. Most of the films that are chosen are films that showcase astounding visuals, thought provoking themes and ideas as well as pure cinematic entertainment. You don't need to be a film buff to have a good time at Film Club! Depending on the film, sometimes we have a little discussion afterwards, share what we got form the film, our own interpretations or what have you, it's not mandatory but it can be fun! Film Club is coming up on it's 3rd year of existence here at the library and over the course of those 3 years we've watched a wide variety of films such as:

-Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio

-Food, Inc.

-Pursuit of Happyness

-The Shop Around the Corner



-Little Miss Sunshine

-Julie and Julia

-The Lives of Others


-Into the Wild

-An Education

-Vicki Christina Barcelona

-Crazy Heart

-Man on Wire

-The Cove

-Slumdog Millionaire

-The White Ribbon

-The Wrestler

-Away We Go

-Hard Day's Night

-The Road


-The Fall

-The Seventh Seal

-Rear Window

-My Left Foot

-Love Aaj Kal


-The Messenger

-Best Worst Movie

-The Fountain

So, if you're looking for something to do on the 3rd Thursday of the month, come on out for a FREE movie and refreshments. If you'd like to be notified what the film will be in advance, give us your name and email and we'll add you to the emailing list. For information head to the circulation desk and ask for Dan.

Hope to see you there!
