Art Double Features: Friends Friday Films 2016

FRIENDS FRIDAY FILMS & THE FLINN GALLERY OFFER ART/FILM DOUBLE FEATURES…

There’s no longer-lived or better-known program associated with Greenwich Library than the Friends Friday Film Series, now 69 years old. For the 2016-2017 season, the Friends Friday Film Series will once again roll out a slate of award-winning new releases, classics and international films with wide-ranging appeal. This popular series is made possible by contributions to the Friends of Greenwich Library.  View the full Friday Films schedule.

From award-winners like Spotlight to Hollywood classics like Blade Runner, plus foreign films and documentaries, longtime Friday Films Host Wayne Campbell has selected films to interest every point of view. The season kicks off on Friday, September 9 and will run through June 30 with Woody Allen’s Café Society.

In partnership with the Friends Friday Films, the Flinn Gallery will once again offer special extended hours before six art-related films this year. Grab an early dinner on the Avenue then stop by the Gallery between 6 and 8 PM to tour the current show.
