"Vertigo" to be Featured in New Greenville Public Library Movie Program

"Greenville Public Library is excited to announce the Third Floor Film Series, a new movie program at GPL that celebrates the wonder of cinema. Once a month GPL will be showing a classic movie in the public meeting room on the third floor of the library. The Third Floor Film Series will focus on films that local movie lovers probably haven’t had a chance to see on a large screen since their original theatrical runs, while making sure selected films are approachable and entertaining for any adult who attends.

The library has an 80′′ wall-mounted flat screen television and a virtual surround audio system that make the meeting room feel like a movie theater. All showings will be free of charge, and snacks and soft drinks will also be provided for free. David Nilsen, editor of our Fourth & Sycamore literary journal and lifelong cinephile, will briefly introduce each film before it is shown and then facilitate a short discussion of the movie when it is over. The first movie in the Third Floor Film Series will be Vertigo, Alfred Hitchcock’s 1958 classic of psychological suspense. Hitchcock’s classic will be shown at GPL on Friday, February 27 at 7 pm.

For a long time any local film lover who has wanted to watch a classic film on a large screen has had to travel at least to Dayton, if not farther. Now we only have to travel to our own public library right here in Greenville. Join us for the Third Floor Film Series and celebrate the art of film. We look forward to seeing you there."
