Silver Screeners Free Movie Matinee: Silent Laughs (Sun. 26 Mar, 2017 1:30 pm)

Every generation has its kings of comedy, those jesters who brighten our lives and lighten our souls. This month’s Silver Screeners Free Classic Movie Matinee on Sunday, March 26, 1:30 p.m. at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street will present a double feature of two of the best Silent Laughs—“Sherlock Jr.” starring Buster Keaton and “Safety Last” with Harold Lloyd.

 

When we think of the comedians of the silent era, most see Chaplin and his beloved tramp. However, Lloyd and Keaton were just as prolific and popular. “Sherlock Jr.” starring Keaton features impressive visual effects as well as thrilling car chases, daring stunts, and sappy romance tied together with humor and charm. Most people remember Harold Lloyd was a man hanging from a clock face. These few seconds of footage comes from the film, “Safety Last.” The film is a warm-hearted romp showing just how far a guy will go to impress a girl.

 

Film and history buffs Steven Moore and Mickey Shire will host a brief discussion prior to and following both films.

 

The program is free and open to the public. Popcorn will be provided by Friends of the Library. For more information call the main library at 740-392-BOOK (2665), visit www.knox.net or email [email protected]

This year’s Theme – “Let It Be Love” (Family Force 5)

This year’s Theme Verses – John 13:34-35 (NIV - New International Version)

Kenyon Billy Shakespeare Presents: As You Like It, Free Performance (Wed. 29 Mar, 2017 5:00 pm)

Members of the Kenyon College Billy Shakespeare Project (aka “Billy Shakes” Project) will present a special performance of “As You Like It” on Wednesday, March 29, 5:00 p.m., at the Public Library of Mount Vernon & Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street, Mount Vernon.

“As You Like It” is a pastoral comedy believed to have been written by William Shakespeare in 1599, and first published in the First Folio, 1623. The story follows its heroine Rosalind as she flees persecution in her uncle's court. Rosalind is accompanied by her cousin Celia to find safety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden.

In the forest, they encounter a variety of memorable characters, notably the melancholy traveler Jacques who speaks many of Shakespeare's most famous speeches (such as "All the world's a stage", "too much of a good thing" and "A fool! A fool! I met a fool in the forest"). Jacques provides a sharp contrast to the other characters in the play, always observing and disputing the hardships of life in the country.

The Billy Shakespeare Project began in 2011 as a challenge to bring the works of Shakespeare to life for students and audiences of all ages by condensing the works to under one hour. Since its inception, the group has presented programs for local elementary schools.

The program is free and open to the public of all ages. Refreshments will be served.

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