(Apple Valley) If you like movies, the Apple Valley Public Library is the place for you. Wait. Movies? Library? The Library has books, not movies. Well, yes and… yes.
Thanks to FAVL, the Friends of the Apple Valley Library, you can watch recent films with your friends at the library. Showing on the first and third Mondays are “Family” films, rated G or PG, with PG-13 rated films shown on the second Monday. September’s family film is Disney’s “Prom” starring Aimee Teagarden, Thomas Mc Donell, Yin Chang and De’Vaughn Nixon. It is the story of the “Biggest Night of Senior Year”. The film, released in April of 2011, features a soundtrack with music by Travee McCoy and Neon Trees. Because the Library will be closed September 5 for Labor Day, “Prom” will be shown on September 12.
For the more mature audience, the September 19 offering will be “Thor”. From the Marvel Comic of the same name, the movie features Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Rene Russo as Frigga and Natalie Portman as the human scientist who teaches Thor about human behavior and helps him to become a defender of humanity. For lovers of the “Comic Book” genre, this film should prove highly entertaining It was produced by the Marvel Studios who recently took over the production of all their comic book feature films. They have put out films like Iron Man, The Hulk, the X-Men series and the recent Captain America. all based on the Marvel Comic Book heroes.
