Great films, picked just for you!

Spend your afternoon enjoying free screenings of classic musicals on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at the Barney Library! This month's film is Bye Bye Birdie (1963).

Nightclub sensation Velma (Catherine Zeta-Jones) murders her philandering husband, and Chicago's slickest lawyer, Billy Flynn (Richard Gere), is set to defend her. But when Roxie (Renée Zellweger) also winds up in prison, Billy takes on her case as well -- turning her into a media circus of headlines. Neither woman will be outdone in their fight against each other and the public for fame and celebrity.

Rated PG-13. 113 minutes. Please register.

Great films, picked just for you!

Spend your afternoon enjoying free screenings of classic musicals on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at the Barney Library! This month's film is Bye Bye Birdie (1963).

Frederic (Rex Smith), who has spent his formative years as a junior pirate, plans to mark his 21st birthday by breaking free from the Pirate King (Kevin Kline) and beginning his courtship of Mabel (Linda Ronstadt). But because he was born on Feb. 29, a date that only arrives every fourth year, Frederic isn't technically 21 -- and the Pirate King is still his master. Unless something gives, Frederic will soon be on a collision course with the Pirate King's new nemesis: Mabel's father.
