The Hillsborough Classic Film Society is a group that is showing classic, foreign and independent films once a month in Orange County Public Library, 137 W. Margaret Lane, Hillsborough.
At each film there is an expert speaker who sets the background for the film.
There’s also free popcorn. You can bring a folding chair, which you might find to be more comfortable than the library chairs.
The films are from the Criterion Collection, which means that they are cleaned up and remastered, and the image on the screen is even better than image the original audiences saw.
It’s free to join the Hillsborough Classic Film Society, and members take part in deciding what films will be shown.
In addition, Hillsborough Classic Film Society is showing family movies as part of Hillsborough Arts Council’s Last Friday Arts Walk:
Friday, July 26th, 2019
Orange County Public Library
137 W. Margaret Lane, Hillsborough
The film is free and the popcorn is free too. This animated film is too recent to really be considered a classic, but it’s a wonderful film for both adults and children. Bring the kids, bring the grandkids, and enjoy other Last Friday events before and after. The Classic Film Society puts these films on with the cooperation and the help of the Orange County Library, and with support from the Arts Council and the Friends of the Library.
