Cranford Public Library Movie Night
Going to the movies is a great way to spend an evening, but with current prices being what they are, you may have to forego a week’s worth of groceries to enjoy one. And, let’s be honest, a huge percentage of the movies that come out today are hardly worth the price of admission.
But what if you could enjoy some of the classics? Sure to please, even award winning oldies, for the price of . . . . NOTHING?! Well, you can!
Did you know that every Tuesday night the Cranford Public Library offers a FREE showing of a classic movie at the Cranford Community Center, at 22o Walnut Avenue. If you’ve never seen the second floor movie room, you’ll be amaze at how wonderful it is . . . . definitely better than some of the movie theaters you’ve been to that divide their space into 12 separate theaters. It is updated, comfortable stadium seating facing a large screen. It’s local, with ample free parking in the lot . . . . . . oh, an did I happen to mention that it is FREE?!
