Movies at the Library
Movies are very popular here at the East Greenbush Community Library. And why not? Movies – much like books – transport us to new worlds and introduce us to new ways of being. The library is proud to be a destination for watching great movies as well as providing an extensive collection of films that you can take home with you. If you ever note anything missing from our collection, simply head over to the Suggestion page and let us know!

PLEASE NOTE: Tickets are required for Film Festival films, BUT NOT REQUIRED for Free Monthly Movies. Registration is required for both.
Free Monthly Movies for Spring 2019
April Monthly Movie – Mary Poppins Returns
The film is set in 1930s depression-era London (the time period of the original novels) and is drawn from the wealth of material in P.L. Travers’ series. In the story, Michael and Jane are now grown up, with Michael, his three children and their housekeeper, Ellen, living on Cherry Tree Lane. After Michael suffers a personal loss, the enigmatic nanny Mary Poppins re-enters the lives of the Banks family, and, along with the optimistic street lamplighter Jack, uses her unique magical skills to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.
Registration for this event will begin on March 15.
April Family Movie – DisneyNature Chimpanzee
It’s family movie time at the library! To celebrate Earth Day we are showing Disneynature Chimpanzee (78 minutes, rated G). Journey deep into the African rainforest and meet Oscar, an adorable young chimp with an entertaining approach to life, and a remarkable story of individual triumph and family bonds.
