POSTPONED: Movie: The Public

Monday, April 20 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Due to concerns related to COVID-19, this event has been postponed indefinitely.

In The Public, an unusually bitter Arctic blast has made its way to downtown Cincinnati and the front doors of the public library, where a group of homeless people turn the building into a shelter for the night by staging a “sleep-in.” What begins as an act of civil disobedience becomes a stand-off with police and a rush-to-judgement by the media. This David vs. Goliath story tackles some of our nation’s most pressing issues and sets the drama inside one of the last bastions of democracy – The Public Library!

Written and directed by Emilio Estevez. Starring Emilio Estevez, Alec Baldwin, Taylor Schilling, Jena Malone, Christian Slater, and Gabrielle Union.

2019 ; 2 hrs ; Rated PG-13.

Open to the public, no charge, no need to register. Shown in the Library Community Room.
