A FANTASTIC WOMAN - A Drama from Chile (107 min)

Marina is a transgendered woman who is in love with Orlando, a man twenty years her senior.  When he suddenly dies, the police question her to see if she is involved.   Her lover’s parents don’t trust her, see her or allow her to go to his funeral. 

However, Marina is no wilting flower.  She puts up a brave face, but internally she is devastated.   She has taken years of abuse, absorbed it and risen above it, because she has had to in order to survive.

The movie is a compassionate film about tolerance, acceptance and understanding. Fantastic is one word for it, another would be outstanding.  This movie won last year’s Foreign Film Academy Award. 

No reservation is required.  Refreshments will be served.

LOVELESS - A Drama from Russia (128 min)

12-year-old Alyosha’s parents are going through a vicious divorce; each has another lover on the side.  Neither wants custody of Alyosha. He is just collateral damage. One day he disappears.

As “Loveless” probes the deepening mystery, it also invites us to speculate about how the promise of this young family turned, so quickly, to rot. Zhenya, as we see, is constantly absorbed by her cellphone, where she scrolls through social-media posts. Boris is distracted by the demands of his pregnant girlfriend.  Alyosha, it seems, is someone else’s problem. 

This movie may be the feel-bad movie of the year, but is profoundly affecting in its ugly truths. Nominated for an Academy Award last year. Join us.

Magnolia on Main provides clothing and accessories to fit the total lifestyle of each customer, whether the need is for a stylish blouse or a cute knit pant to wear after yoga or the gym. Offering convenience, contemporary styles and personal service, Magnolia on Main combines Main Street-style shopping with fashion know-how.

Bow by Kat is a boutique on wheels, bringing fun and affordable women's clothing, jewelry, accessories and gift items in a unique shopping experience inside a truck. Style Truck is a boutique on wheels, similar to a food truck, but stocked with clothing and accessories for women. Featuring many American-made items as well as jewelry from local artists, it is perfect for the woman on the go with styles for all ages.

Style Truck, affectionately known as Cookie, is fashioned with a fitting room, shelving and racks inside.

Jeneration X Beauty featuring makeup by Younique is all about having fun and discovering what Younique products can do to enhance, uplift and enlighten!

A portion of the proceeds benefits the Northland Public Library Foundation, whose mission is to build financial support through community fundraising to enhance the programs and growth of the library.

 “I was thoroughly impressed!  I liked how each story led into great lessons about bullying, self-image, bravery, etc.  The girls seemed completely engaged and really enjoyed themselves.”  Director, Carnegie Library of McKeesport

 “Being a Savvy Cinderella has given my daughter confidence and fostered a love of literature. “  Parent

MASAAN - A Drama/Romance from India (109 min)

The movie contains two parallel stories. 

The first story is about a young girl caught in a sexual act and labeled a social outcast. How she and her father deal with the situation of corrupt cops and social stigma constitutes one-half of the soul of the film. 

The second story concerns a young man who falls in love with a girl that is of a higher cast. Both stories depict the nervous passion of first love and/or attraction with great effect. When tragedy comes to each of the lovers lives, it is showed with a great degree of deftness. 

Lastly, after love and tragedy have occurred comes redemption.  As both characters learn from their experience, they find romance again, but with a twist.  This film has won 11 awards, including two at Cannes.

It is beautifully shot, acted, and written.

Led by a master storyteller, students will meet fairy tale heroines who are brave, clever, caring and resilient.  Students will have fun performing tales with their classmates and earn a fairy wand.

 “I was thoroughly impressed!  I liked how each story led into great lessons about bullying, self-image, bravery, etc.  The girls seemed completely engaged and really enjoyed themselves.”  Director, Carnegie Library of McKeesport

 “Being a Savvy Cinderella has given my daughter confidence and fostered a love of literature. “  Parent
