'Second Friday Films' series scheduled

'Second Friday Films' series scheduled

This week's selection in the Second Friday Films series shown at the Finney County Public Library, 605 E. Walnut St., is a 2011 Oscar-winning movie. It focuses on a married couple that is faced with a difficult decision — to improve the life of their child by moving to another country or to stay in Iran and look after a deteriorating parent who has Alzheimer's disease.

The films, which are shown at 7 p.m. on the second Friday of the month, are selected by the Film Committee of Garden City Arts. No admission is charged and refreshments are available.

Participants are advised to check the ratings as some films will not be appropriate for young children. According to the copyright license held by the library, the titles of the films cannot be published anywhere but at the library.

For more information, call the library, 272-3680, or Garden City Arts, 260-9700.
