Try a Foreign Film
December 01, 2010
Hi Films Fans!
You know, Hollywood isn't the only game in town. Our MCPL film collection includes great foreign films as well. Of course, you would probably have to read a lot of subtitles. However, if you love great films, it's worth it! So, I've listed some of the great foreign films I've seen over the years. These films are available in our library system. Of course, I love great American films as well; dramas, westerns, and dare I say it, even an occasional romance.
We will only be at our temporary location until Saturday, Dec. 4th. We will then be closed for a couple of weeks in order to move back to our renovated building. However, you can check out both our newly remodeled library branch as well as MCPL's great film collection when we reopen at our regular location on Monday, December 20th. Aloha, film lovers!!
