Ohiolina Music Festival (Fri. 15 Sep, 2017 5:00 pm - Sat. 16 Sep, 2017 8:00 pm)

Celebrating our fifth year in 2017, the Ohiolina Music Festival celebrates music and culture from the Appalachian region stretching from Ohio to North Carolina.

Listen to exceptional folk, rock, Americana and bluegrass as musicians fill our natural amphitheater with gorgeous sound.

Taste local and regionally-inspired menus and sip drinks from some of Ohio and North Carolina’s best breweries and wineries.

Enjoy a family-friendly atmosphere with activities for all ages. 

Relax in a peaceful hideaway—a little bit remote, a little bit historic, it's a quick weekend escape with lush landscapes and beautiful views. It's pretty quiet up here—except when the music is playing.

How I Became a Pirate (Fri. 15 Sep, 2017 7:30 pm)

Set sail on a rowdy pirate adventure June 23, 24 and 25 when MTVarts revives "How I Became A Pirate" at the Memorial Theatre.

“How I Became a Pirate” tells the story of Jeremy Jacob, a young boy with exceptional digging skills who is recruited by Captain Braid Beard to be the treasure-burying expert on his pirate crew. Jeremy thinks the pirate life is for him, until he begins to realize the simple things in life – like being kissed and tucked into a warm bed each night – are the most important.

All your favorite pirates (and a few new crew) will be returning for this raucous tale of high sea adventure written by Ohio's own composer /lyricst team of Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman.  Based on the book written by Melissa Young with illustrations by David Shannon this show is the perfect choice for a family outing - perfect for the young audience.

Everyone gets a chance to meet the pirates after the show!

"Sunset Boulevard" at Silver Screeners Free Movie Matinee (Sun. 24 Sep, 2017 2:00 pm)

The 1950 Academy Award nominated classic film, “Sunset Boulevard” will be featured at the Silver Screeners Classic Movie Matinee on Sunday, September 24, 2:00 p.m., at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street, Mount Vernon.

 

Sunset Boulevard (stylized onscreen as SUNSET BLVD.) is a 1950 American film noir directed and co-written by Billy Wilder, and produced and co-written by Charles Brackett. It was named after the boulevard that runs through Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, California.

 

The film stars William Holden as Joe Gillis, an unsuccessful screenwriter, and Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond, a faded silent film star who draws him into her fantasy world where she dreams of making a triumphant return to the screen, with Erich von Stroheim as Max von Mayerling, her devoted servant. Nancy Olson, Fred Clark, Lloyd Gough and Jack Webb play supporting roles. Director Cecil B. DeMille and gossip columnist Hedda Hopper play themselves, and the film includes cameo appearances by leading silent film actors Buster Keaton, H. B. Warner and Anna Q. Nilsson.

 

Praised by many critics when first released, the film was nominated for eleven Academy Awards (including nominations in all four acting categories) and won three. Deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" by the U.S. Library of Congress in 1989, “Sunset Boulevard” was included in the first group of films selected for preservation in the National Film Registry.

 

The program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. A discussion with information about the film will take place before the start of the movie.

 

For more information, call the main library at 740-392-BOOK (2665), visit www.knox.net or email [email protected].
