Films are screened on the second Monday of every month at 6 p.m. in Room A-5, located on library's lower level.  Just call 202-727-0321 to see what's playing this month!

Fantasy Flicks

Monday, May 18, 2015, 6 p.m.

It's just what it says on the tin: movies with some element of realism, some parsimonious narrative shred of the numinous, the impossible, the beguilingly made-up. Planets uninhabited and otherwise, fairies, space marines, time travel, wayward otherworldly machines, and the reality-bending light-out-of-darkness of every universe.  And, perhaps, a little adventure and romance, if our voyage permits.
