Why showing movies at libraries can be a good thing, as if you didn’t already know this.
The great thing about some public libraries, like this one, is the link the library sets up between the community, the library staff and the resources of the building and its contents. In this case, John Ciurrin from the Library introduced the film by referring to the Albany Public Library’s strong commitment to freedom of speech and how their large auditorium was dedicated to use by the community for a wide range of purposes. Dennis Mosley runs the Independent Film Forum at the Library, which has a loyal group of regulars. Venues like this are some of the most vital forums for public discussion in the country. [thanks dj]
