Join us for Movie Night on Wednesday, August 8, 2018, from 6:00-8:30pm.  We will be showing a recent movie where a family of four must stay in A Quiet Place or their survival will be threatened.  The movie stars Emily Blunt and Boston-born John Krasinski.

In a not-so-distant post-apocalyptic world, the Abbott family is forced to live in silence in a world full of creatures with extremely sensitive hearing who hunt by sound.  Stephen King wrote on Twitter, “A QUIET PLACE is an extraordinary piece of work. Terrific acting, but the main thing is the SILENCE, and how it makes the camera’s eye open wide in a way few movies manage.”

Associated Press writes, “It is smart, it moves fast, it has a hugely satisfying ending….”  Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a 95% approval rating.

This summer, Malden Public Library is holding a Summer Reading program with the theme “Libraries Rock!”  We invite adults, children, and teens to join our Summer Reading program.  Please see our website for more details.
