A new semi-monthly series of programs devoted to various classic movies from Hollywood, Europe and the rest of the world. Cult films have the ability to touch their intended following, influencing anyone even remotely interested in film production. It's these so-called "fringe" or over-the-top movies that Greenwich Library Cult Films, through our extensive catalog, intends to expose to a much wider and appreciative audience.
Librarian and film buff Ed Morrissey will lead a pre- and post-screening discussion.
