Reel Monday is our 13-year-strong twice-annual movie night series bringing hand-picked films from the Criterion catalogue to the beautiful Arden Theatre. Your ticket sales cover the cost of the film licensing, rental of the Arden Theatre, and a donation to STARFest, the Library’s readers’ festival.
“A funny, sweet, insightful, low-key charmer of a story that’s all about making human connections, reconciling broken relationships and finding solace in the companionship of another fellow traveler on this planet.”Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun Times
Note: Ride the Eagle includes more cursing than our usual films.
If you can’t attend but still want to support the Library, you can donate to us online via CanadaHelps!
