Ahhh, October 1st, the beginning of the Halloween season. Hopefully I'll be able to make a post-a-day during the month. Check back here every day to see if I can do it! lol
To start off I like to post the movie schedule for Akron-Summit County Main Library's Thursday Movies @ Main. In past years they have shown old horror movies all month long. But this year it looks like we only get one day. Oh well, they're free. Does any other library show free movies?
All films will be shown in the Main Library Auditorium every Thursday starting at 6:30 pm, unless otherwise noted.
All programs are FREE and open to the public.
Parking is free in the High/Market St. deck for those arriving after 6pm.
