Film Events: Movies and More

Lake County Public Library, Indiana

Kids enjoy The Lorax at the Hobart Branch

Catch a flick on the library's big screen! We've got popular movies, classic movies, documentaries, and more - including popcorn!

If there is a film series you're interested in, check the branch's calendars to see when the next showing is coming up!

Library Lover Tip: Even though several branches show a certain type of movie, like travel films, each of the branches chooses different ones to show - so while Highland may be going to Barcelona this week, Munster might be headed to Egypt! if you want to see multiple different films in a series each month, visit different branches!
