It’s that time of year to kick back, enjoy the sunshine and on a super hot day — cool off with a good movie.
Mayor Jimmy Davis invites the community to head over to Bayonne Public Library for your pick of nine different summer flicks.
With the exception of July 5 (no film shown), since that date falls during the July 4 holiday, the free series is held most Wednesdays through August 16 at 1pm — in the O’Connor Gallery on the second floor of the library.
The building is located at 31st Street and Avenue C.
Award winners and nominees are among the films to be shown, as well as a selection of children’s movies that are not just for kids.
The films geared specifically toward children will be shown July 26 through August 16. Youngsters attending those films must be accompanied by an adult. No children will be admitted for the adult selections.
