Join the Everett Public Library’s “Evergreen Cinema Society” for a free monthly film screening and discussion. The program theme for the 2019 series is “Critical Mass,” with a focus on recent, critically-acclaimed films.

This free program takes place on the last Wednesday of each month at 1 pm at the Main Library, located at 2702 Hoyt Avenue in Everett. Each “Critical Mass” film is screened in its entirety. Film screenings include a brief introduction and a facilitated discussion led by Alan Jacobson, a film scholar and a librarian at the Everett Public Library.

The first film program in the “Critical Mass” series will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 30, with a screening and discussion of “Spotlight” (2015). “Spotlight” follows the true story of the Boston Globe’s investigation of child molestation and a cover-up in the Catholic Church. Directed by Tom McCarthy and starring Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, and Rachel McAdams, “Spotlight” is rated R and runs 128 minutes.

Other films in the 2019 “Critical Mass” series range from contemporary classics like “There Will be Blood” (2007) to current conversation starters like “Get Out” (2017).

For further information, call 425-257-8000 or visit the library’s website at www.epls.org.
