Movie Night at Lake Elmo Library

Lake Elmo Public Library continues showing “grown-up” movies on two Thursday nights in April. Free movie popcorn is available.

On April 14, at 6 p.m. the film is “Suffragette” with Helena Bonham Carter, Meryl Streep and Cary Mulligan. The foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal state. Rated PG-13 for some intense violence, thematic elements, brief strong language and partial nudity.

And on Thursday, April 28, at 6 p.m. is “The Big Short” with Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling. Four denizens in the world of high-finance predict the credit and housing bubble collapse of the mid-2000s, and decide to take on the big banks for their greed and lack of foresight. The film won a 2016 Oscar for Best Writing/Adapted screenplay. Rated R for pervasive language and some sexuality/nudity.
