Christmas Abroad
Central Cinema Nights is a movie screening in the Central Library’s Durwood Film Vault taking place Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.  Join us as we watch and discuss documentaries and feature films in a socially conscious setting, chosen to fit a monthly theme. This month's theme: Christmas Abroad.

From heartwarming to outrageous, our December films cross borders into Canada, France, Finland, and Hungary for a peek at Christmas Abroad.  Come find out why it is so bizzarre that these four films share a spot under the tree.

The Shop Around the Corner (1940, NR)

Alfred Kralik (James Stewart) and Klara Novak (Margaret Sullavan) are employees at Matuschek and Company, a general store in Budapest. Klara and Alfred are constantly at odds with each other, butting heads and disagreeing on almost everything. Both are enamored of their respective pen pals, who serve as welcome distractions in their lives. Little do they know, they are each the other's pen pal and, despite outward differences, have unwittingly fallen in love through their letters

Everyone is welcome! Movie screenings at the Central Library are always FREE and open to the public.
