- Blockbusters, studio gems, and new-release DVDs are generally shown during the winter months. The number of films in this series may vary from year to year.
- With this autumn series, The Library offers cinemaphiles the opportunity to catch up with independent features, docudramas, documentaries, and topical films that were not widely distributed. If you missed them during their all-too-brief runs at inconveniently located art houses, here is your chance.
Family Flick Fest
