Movie nights are back at the Great Bend Public Library, 1409 Williams St. Starting Friday, Sept. 30 the library will once again be screening movies for the public, said Jennifer King, head of marketing.

The After-School Movie at 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 30 is an animated feature about Blu, a domesticated macaw from small-town Minnesota. When Blu meets the firecely independent Jewel, he takes off on an adventure to Rio de Janeiro with this bird of his dreams.

That evening the library hosts its monthly Adults Night Out, for the 18 and over crowd. The 7 p.m. movie is the story of a mousy governess who softens the heart of her employer, but soon discovers that he’s hiding a terrible secret. It is based on the novel by Charlotte Brontë.

Saturday, Oct. 1 is Teen Movie Night, for students in grades 7-12. In this movie, the powerful but arrogant warrior Thor is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard and sent to live amongst humans on Earth, where he soon becomes one of their finest defenders.

For the 7 p.m. showings the doors will open at 6:45 p.m. and close at 7:05.
