Morris Dancing
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

dancing at MerrymountEnjoy Morris Dance performances by the Red Herring Morris dance team and over a dozen other teams from as far away as Syracuse (NY), Burlington (VT), London (Ontario, Canada), and Southhampton (England). Dancing will happen on the Main Library grounds, weather permitting.

Morris is a seasonal ritual dance performed in England, and more recently in other countries as well. There are many proposed theories for the origin of the morris. No specific theory will be embraced at this program. Morris Dancers are best known for dancing around the May-Pole. Nathanial Hawthorne wrote a short story, published in the collection of Twice-Told Tales (1836, 1837) titled "The May-Pole of Merry Mount" that is set in the late 1620s. Morris dancing certainly has old roots in Quincy, particularly in Wollaston and Merry Mount!

movie stillOscar and Golden Globe winner for Best Performance by an Actress and recipient of many other awards and nominations. Winner Jack (Jacob Tremblay) is a spirited 5 year-old who is looked after by his loving and devoted Ma (Brie Larson). Like any good mother, Ma dedicates herself to keeping Jack happy and safe, nurturing him with warmth and love and doing typical things like playing games and telling stories. Their life, however, is anything but typical—they are trapped—confined to a windowless, 10-by-10-foot space, which Ma has euphemistically named “Room.” Ma has created a whole universe for Jack within Room, and she will stop at nothing to ensure that, even in this treacherous environment, Jack is able to live a complete and fulfilling life. But as Jack’s curiosity about their situation grows, and Ma’s resilience reaches its breaking point, they enact a risky plan to escape, ultimately bringing them face-to-face with what may turn out to be the scariest thing yet: the real world.

"Room unfolds with the privilege of seeing and experiencing the world for the very first time, which is maybe the best we can ever expect from a medium like the cinema."--Boston Globe

Directed by Lenny Abrahamson. Starring Brie Larson & Jacob Tremblay. Theatrically released in 2015. 118 Minutes; Rated R for language.

Grownups 20/30s Classic Films: Wet Hot American Summer
2:30 PM - 4:45 PM

movie poster for Wet Hot American SummerCalling all grownups who are in their 20s and 30s. The library is starting a series of programs just for you!

Join us every Saturday at 2:30 p.m. as we watch classic movies on the big screen. This week, we're watching Wet Hot American Summer, a 2001 movie starring Janeane Garofalo and David Hyde Pierce.

The setting is Camp Firewood, the year 1981. It's the last day before everyone goes back to the real world, but there's still a summer's worth of unfinished business to resolve. At the center of the action is camp director Beth, who struggles to keep order while she falls in love with the local astrophysics professor. He is busy trying to save the camp from a deadly piece of NASA's Skylab which is hurtling toward earth. All that, plus: a dangerous waterfall rescue, love triangles, misfits, cool kids, and talking vegetable cans. The questions will all be resolved, of course, at the big talent show at the end of the day. 97 minutes; Rated R for strong sexual content, language and a drug sequence.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Thomas Crane Public Library.

Crime by the Book: Suosso's Lane - a modern Sacco-Vanzetti tale
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

photoCome hear a compelling tale of ethnic profiling and death row injustice set both in the early decades of the twentieth century and the dawn of the 21st. Inspired by and starring Bartolomeo Vanzetti and set in Braintree, Dedham, Plymouth, and Boston, this story is sure to command your attention. Condemned to death largely for anarchist beliefs in a trial marked by fear-mongering and prejudice toward Italian immigrants, Sacco and Vanzetti were found guilty and executed in 1927 despite worldwide protests by millions of workers and intellectuals.

Seventy years later a young history teacher moves to Suosso's Lane in Vanzetti's old Plymouth neighborhood and hears rumors of lost evidence that might prove his innocence. Intrigued by Vanzetti's story and the lessons it holds for our own day, young Mill Becker risks his academic career in the search for a lost letter, joining forces with a local reporter on a search of his own to clear up a policeman's suspicious death in the 1940s.

A then-and-now novel, "Suosso's Lane" reconstructs the cause that captivated the world's attention and addresses the still timely issues of immigration, ethnic group prejudice, the widening gap between rich and poor, and failures in our criminal justice system. Come hear Author Robert Knox talk about his novel and enjoy his perspective on this historic story with great modern-day repercussions.

Feature Film @North Quincy: In the Heart of the Sea
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

movie still In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. In the Heart of the Sea reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, as their captain searches for direction on the open sea and his first mate still seeks to bring the great whale down.

"Only landlubbers would resist the rousing action of man versus leviathan. Sure it's old-school. So what. Howard puts heart, soul and every computerized whale trick in the book into crafting a seafaring adventure to rock your boat."--Rolling Stone

Directed by Ron Howard. Starring Ben Whishaw, Brendan Gleeson, Chris Hemsworth, & Cillian Murphy. Theatrically released in 2015. 122 Minutes; Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action and peril, brief startling violence, and thematic material.

Grownups 20/30s Classic Films: Do the Right Thing
2:30 PM - 4:45 PM

Movie poster of Do the Right ThingCalling all grownups who are in their 20s and 30s. The library is starting a series of programs just for you!

Join us every Saturday at 2:30 p.m. as we watch classic movies on the big screen. This week, we're watching Do the Right Thing, a 1989 movie starring Danny Aiello and Spike Lee.

This film looks at life in the Bedford-Stuyvesant district of Brooklyn on a hot summer Sunday. As he does everyday, Sal Fragione opens the pizza parlor he's owned for 25 years. The neighborhood has changed considerably in the time he's been there and is now composed primarily of African-Americans and Hispanics. His son Pino hates it there and would like nothing better than to relocate the eatery to their own neighborhood. For Sal however, the restaurant represents something that is part of his life and sees it as a part of the community. What begins as a simple complaint by one of his customers, Buggin Out - who wonders why he has only pictures of famous Italian-Americans on the wall when most of his customers are black - eventually disintegrates into violence as frustration seemingly brings out the worst in everyone. 120 minutes; Rated R.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Thomas Crane Public Library.

Problems with Pipelines and Compressor Stations
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

leaking pipeline photo

Pipelines are a common way to transport fuel long distances. They carry highly pressurized gas and oil hundreds of miles and many people are concerned about their impact on the communities they cut across. What is the problem? Come hear two local experts discuss the local importance of this issue from two different directions. Dr. Phillips's research starts with leaking small pipes and their links to the large infrastructure. Dr. Soleau will bring a higher-level perspective and discuss the big energy future issues facing Massachusetts, especially the pipeline and compressor station projects affecting 55 cities and towns, including greater Boston. There will also be some discussion about alternatives to these gas projects.

Nathan Phillips is an ecologist & Professor in the Boston University Department of Earth & Environment. He led the first study of its kind to map over 3,000 gas leaks in Boston. Dr. Phillips holds a PhD from Duke University and a BS in Physics from California State University, Sacramento. Tyler Soleau is the Outreach Director at Acadia Center, raising awareness, building networks, and advancing clean energy programs throughout the Northeast. Previously, he worked as the Staff Director and Counsel for the Massachusetts House Committee on Climate Change. Tyler holds a JD from Vermont Law School and a BA in Government and Environmental Studies from Hamilton College.

This program is co-sponsored by the Quincy Climate Action Network (QCAN) and Fore River Residents Against the Compressor Station (FRRACS).

So Close to Home: WWII, U-Boats & Quincy
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

family photoMichael J. Tougias, bestselling author and co-author of 24 books, and Ray "Sonny" Downs will present a new, dramatic presentation based on Mike's new co-authored book So Close to Home: An American Family’s World War II Story of Survival and the U-boat that Attacked Them (featuring Ray “Sonny” Downs of Quincy, Massachusetts). They will use slides of the attack, the survivors, and the rescue to make this “an edge-of-your seat” visual program.

On May 19, 1942, a German U-boat in the Gulf of Mexico stalked its prey 40 miles off New Orleans. Captained by 29-year-old Erich Wurdemann, the submarine commander had his sights set on the freighter Heredia with 62 souls on board. Most of the crew were merchant seamen, but there were also a handful of civilians including the Downs family. The family was comprised of the parents, Ray Sr. and Ina, along with their two children, eight-year-old Ray Jr., nick-named “Sonny”, and an eleven-year-old.

Fast asleep in their berth the Downs family had no warning that two torpedoes were heading their way. When the ship exploded, all four members of the family were separated in the chaotic 2:00 a.m. event. More than half the crew and passengers aboard the Heredia perished, but incredibly, after 15 hours in the ocean – facing sharks, hypothermia, drowning, and dehydration—all of the Downs family survived and were reunited. Ray Downs Jr. aka “Sonny” who lives in Massachusetts is now 80 years old but remembers every detail of the voyage, the attack, and his family’s miraculous survival. The captain and senior crew members of the Heredia were all Massachusetts natives. Tougias also had access to the U-boat commander Erich Wurdemann’s War Diary, and the presentation will include a discussion of the challenges faced aboard the sub, and some of the daring raids the commander made off the coast of America.

A book signing will follow the program, and the presentation is suitable for all ages. Tougias, known for his fast paced writing style and character-driven stories, has is also author of The Finest Hours (made into a major motion picture by the Disney Corporation). His other books include Rescue of the Bounty, Overboard!, Fatal Forecast, A Storm Too Soon, and Ten Hours Until Dawn.

They soon embark on an epic adventure that brings them face-to-face with heroes from the past, as well as new villains such as Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and the First Order, a fascist regime that has emerged from the ashes of the old Empire. Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Peter Mayhew, and Anthony Daniels return to reprise their roles as, respectively, Leia Organa, Han Solo, Chewbacca, and C-3PO. The film also features new contributions from composer John Williams and sound designer Ben Burtt, whose familiar palette of sounds have helped define the Star Wars universe.

1916. While war rages in the Ottoman Empire, Hussein raises his younger brother Theeb ("Wolf") in a traditional Bedouin community that is isolated by the vast, unforgiving desert. The brothers' quiet existence is suddenly interrupted when a British Army officer and his guide ask Hussein to escort them to a water well located along the old pilgrimage route to Mecca. So as not to dishonor his recently deceased father, Hussein agrees to lead them on the long and treacherous journey. The young, mischievous Theeb secretly chases after his brother, but the group soon find themselves trapped amidst threatening terrain riddled with Ottoman mercenaries, Arab revolutionaries, and outcast Bedouin raiders.

"A mesmerizing coming of age adventure in an elemental setting, Theeb becomes both more allegorical and more specific to our historical moment the more you think about it."--Boston Globe

Matinee Film: The Finest Hours
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

movie stillOn February 18, 1952, a massive nor’easter struck New England, pummeling towns along the Eastern seaboard and wreaking havoc on the ships caught in its deadly path, including the SS Pendleton, a T-2 oil tanker bound for Boston, which was literally ripped in half, trapping more than 30 sailors inside its rapidly-sinking stern. As the senior officer on board, first assistant engineer Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) soon realizes it is up to him to take charge of the frightened crew and inspire the men to set aside their differences and work together to ride out one of the worst storms to ever hit the East Coast. Meanwhile, as word of the disaster reaches the U.S. Coast Guard station in Chatham, Massachusetts, Warrant Officer Daniel Cluff (Eric Bana) orders a daring operation to rescue the stranded men. Despite overwhelming odds, four men, led by Coast Guard Captain Bernie Webber (Chris Pine), set out in a wooden lifeboat with an ill-equipped engine and little, if any, means of navigation, facing frigid temperatures, 60-foot high waves and hurricane-force winds.

"What happens is important, but more important is how it happens and whom it happens to."--San Francisco Chronicle

Directed by Craig Gillespie. Starring Ben Foster, Casey Affleck, Chris Pine, Eric Bana. Theatrically released in 2016. 117 Minutes; Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of peril.

Feature Film @North Quincy: The Finest Hours
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

movie stillOn February 18, 1952, a massive nor’easter struck New England, pummeling towns along the Eastern seaboard and wreaking havoc on the ships caught in its deadly path, including the SS Pendleton, a T-2 oil tanker bound for Boston, which was literally ripped in half, trapping more than 30 sailors inside its rapidly-sinking stern. As the senior officer on board, first assistant engineer Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) soon realizes it is up to him to take charge of the frightened crew and inspire the men to set aside their differences and work together to ride out one of the worst storms to ever hit the East Coast. Meanwhile, as word of the disaster reaches the U.S. Coast Guard station in Chatham, Massachusetts, Warrant Officer Daniel Cluff (Eric Bana) orders a daring operation to rescue the stranded men. Despite overwhelming odds, four men, led by Coast Guard Captain Bernie Webber (Chris Pine), set out in a wooden lifeboat with an ill-equipped engine and little, if any, means of navigation, facing frigid temperatures, 60-foot high waves and hurricane-force winds.

"What happens is important, but more important is how it happens and whom it happens to."--San Francisco Chronicle

Directed by Craig Gillespie. Starring Ben Foster, Casey Affleck, Chris Pine, Eric Bana. Theatrically released in 2016. 117 Minutes; Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of peril.

Matinee Film: Hello, My Name is Doris
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

movie stillWhen Doris Miller (Sally Field) meets John Fremont (Max Greenfield), her company’s hip new art director, sparks fly—at least for Doris. Her first encounter with true romance (outside of the pages of a novel) convinces Doris that she and the mostly unaware John are meant for each other. In the cluttered house she shared with her late mother, Doris mines the Internet for information on her one-and-only, guided by the 13-year-old granddaughter of her best pal Roz (Tyne Daly). When Doris begins showing up at John’s regular haunts, she wins over his Williamsburg friends with her eclectic vintage wardrobe, quirky naiveté and unironic enthusiasm for their rooftop knitting circle. Her new life brings Doris a thrilling perspective, but also creates a rift between her and her longtime friends and family, who believe she’s making a fool of herself over a guy half her age. Eager for all the experiences she has missed out on, Doris throws caution to the wind and follows her heart for the very first time.

"Field amazes with her gameness, range and commitment."--Los Angeles Times

Directed by Michael Showalter. Starring Elizabeth Reaser, Kumail Nanjiani, Max Greenfield, Natasha Lyonne, Sally Field, Tyne Daly, & Wendi McLendon-Covey. Theatrically released in 2016. 95 Minutes; Rated R for language.

movie stillXuan's (Deng Chao) real estate project involves reclamation of the sea and threatens the livelihood of the mermaids who live there.

Unfortunately, Shan and the other mermaids are hunted by a hidden organization, and Xuan must save Shan before it's too late.

"The Mermaid is at its best when it embraces the ridiculous, no-holds-barred, farcical comedy that Chow has become known for, thanks to films like Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer."--Entertainment Weekly

Directed by Stephen Chow. Starring Deng Chao & Lin Yun. Theatrically released in 2016. 94 Minutes; Rated R for some violence.
