Thursday, August 17 – The Lost City of Z

Join the Library at the Bensenville Theatre for a showing of The Lost City of Z. At the dawn of the 20th century, British explorer Percy Fawcett journeys into the Amazon, where he discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization that may have once inhabited the region. Despite being ridiculed by the scientific establishment, which views indigenous populations as savages, the determined Fawcett, supported by his devoted wife, son, and aide-de-camp, returns to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case. This film is rated PG-13 for violence, disturbing images, brief strong language and some nudity.

(2016, Rated PG-13, Running time: 2 hours, 21 minutes)

Thursday, September 21 – Split

Join the Library at the Bensenville Theatre for a showing of Split. Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all of the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey, Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him — as well as everyone around him — as the walls between his compartments shatter.

(2016, Rated PG-13, Running time: 1 hour, 57 minutes)
