Live On The Lawn: Family Movie Night: Wed., Aug. 16th

Join us for Outdoor Movie Night at the Malden Public Library on Wednesday, August 16, 2017 at 7:45pm for part of our “Live On The Lawn” series.  We will be showing a recent animated Disney film about a girl named Moana, the strong-willed daughter of a Polynesian chief, who bails on being a princess and sets sail on the ocean to save her family and her island.  Inspired by Polynesian stories and mythology, the movie features the voice of Dwayne Johnson and a soundtrack by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

The New York Times writes, “Moana is an inspiring heroine, a smart, brave and decent young woman….”  Rotten Tomatoes gives the movie a 96% approval rating and Roger Ebert’s website describes the film as having “dazzling visuals, catchy tunes, enjoyable performances, cleaver running gags and overall sense of fun.”

Join us on the front lawn for this fun, family-friendly, and crowd-pleasing summer film.  Free popcorn will be provided.  Thank you to our sponsors:  Eastern Bank Charitable Fund and The Friends of the Malden Public Library.

This film is free and open to the public.  Movie times are approximate.  Please call the Malden Public Library at 781-324-0218 for more information.  Rated PG (107 min.)


Malden Reads Movie Night: Tues., April 26th: 6:00-8:45pm

Join us for Malden Reads Movie Night at the Malden Public Library on Tuesday, April 26, 2016, from 6:00-8:45pm.  We will be showing our second film screening at the library for Malden Reads.  This exceptional documentary highlights the NASA astronauts’ experiences as they travel “In The Shadow of the Moon” for the first time. This film screening is part of the Malden Reads 2016 One City, One Book program featuring “The Martian” by Andy Weir. The film combines archival material from original NASA film footage of man’s walks on the moon, much never before seen, and interviews with surviving astronauts who emerge as eloquent, witty, emotional and human. Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a 95% rating and Richard Roeper writes of the film, “A beautiful, exhilarating, and sometimes deeply moving documentary about those long-ago Apollo missions of the late 1960s and early 1970s.” This movie is free and open to the public and is accessible.  Rated PG (110 min.)
