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!
Refer to this page for information on upcoming Free Monthly Movies, Special Movie events, and of course, all the information regarding the Day Before the Awards Film Festival. PLEASE NOTE: Tickets are required for Film Festival films, BUT NOT REQUIRED for Free Monthly Movies. Registration is required for both.
Free Monthly Movie for December 2018
Crazy Rich Asians
“Crazy Rich Asians” follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Golding), to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick’s family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. It turns out that he is not only the scion of one of the country’s wealthiest families but also one of its most sought-after bachelors. Being on Nick’s arm puts a target on Rachel’s back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick’s own disapproving mother (Yeoh) taking aim. And it soon becomes clear that while money can’t buy love, it can definitely complicate things.
