After a two-year hiatus, we are excited to announce the return of regular library film screenings in September. Film screenings will be held on Mondays and Fridays at 6:30 PM in the Orem Library’s media auditorium, located in the north wing basement next to the movie collection. Each month, one film screening will be held in the Library Hall’s Ashton Auditorium. To tie in with our Orem Reads 2022 theme, September will feature romance film screenings –including old-fashioned classics like Casablanca and The African Queen, fantasy favorites Stardust and The Princess Bride, and even a little horror with The Bride of Frankenstein. Check out the full schedule below and join us for an enchanting and romantic month of movies!
