The dog days of summer are definitely here, and we are warned to take precautions against the intense heat. How do you deal with the hot, boring days of August? Consider watching movies you have checked out from the Library—it’s entertaining and free!
With your library card, you can reserve and check out past seasons of series featured on regular television and cable channels. Popular titles include “Longmire,” “The Americans,” “House of Cards,” and “Outlander.” The Library also has many BBC series available for check out: “Sherlock,” “Poldark,” “Orphan Black,” and “DCI Banks.” Additionally, we carry award-winning foreign films, such as 2016 Oscar nominees “Theeb,” “Mustang,” and “Embrace of the Serpent.”
Recently, I enjoyed watching season 1 of “Mr. Robot,” a USA Network series about a young computer programmer who is recruited by an anarchist team of hackers to take down a ruthless and unethical multinational corporation . I’m also looking forward to seeing the first season of “UnReal,” a Lifetime show about a TV producer who works to manipulate relationships on a “Bachelor”-style dating show in order to film outrageous footage.
If you like watching movies on the big screen, join us for the Flicker Shack film series at Sedona Library most Mondays at 6 p.m. The movies are free and open to the public; donations are welcome. Here’s the schedule for August:
