Elevator repairs are completed at the Great Bend Public Library, allowing for the return of the popular free film nights, said Terri Hurley, public relations director.

Family Film Night will feature Roddy, a decidedly upper-crust "society mouse" who lives the life of a beloved pet in a posh Kensington flat. When a sewer rat named Sid comes spewing out of the sink and decides he’s hit the jackpot, Roddy schemes to rid himself of the pest by luring him into the "whirlpool." Sid may be an ignorant slob, but he’s no fool, so it is Roddy who winds up being flushed away into the bustling sewer world of Ratropolis. This PG rated film shows from 7-8:30, p.m. Friday at the library, 1409 Williams St. North doors open at 6:45.

Adults 18 and older are invited to Adults Only Film Night, from 7-9 p.m. Saturday. North doors open at 6:45. The movie is based on a true story about a man named Christopher Gardner. His wife leaves him; he loses his house, his bank account, and credit cards. Forced to live out in the streets with his son, Gardner is now desperate to find a steady job; he takes on a job as a stockbroker, but before he can receive pay, he needs to go through 6 months of training. The film is rated PG-13.

Free popcorn, water and candy will be served at both movies.
