Movies at the Library

Movies are very popular here at the East Greenbush Community Library. And why not? Movies – much like books – transport us to new worlds and introduce us to new ways of being. The library is proud to be a destination for watching great movies as well as providing an extensive collection of films that you can take home with you. If you ever note anything missing from our collection, simply head over to the Suggestion page and let us know!

Refer to this page for information on upcoming Free Monthly Movies, Special Movie events, and of course, all the information regarding the Day Before the Awards Film Festival. PLEASE NOTE: Tickets are required for Film Festival films, BUT NOT REQUIRED for Free Monthly Movies. Registration is required for both.

Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again

Five years after the events of Mamma Mia!, on the Greek island of Kalokairi, Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is pregnant with Sky’s (Dominic Cooper) child while running her mother, Donna’s (Meryl Streep) villa. Sophie’s relationship with Sky has been turbulent for some time. With Tanya (Christine Baranski) and Rosie’s (Julie Walters) guidance, Sophie will find out more of Donna’s past, including how she fronted The Dynamos, started her villa on the island from nothing, met each one of Sophie’s dads, Sam, Bill and Harry (Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgård, and Colin Firth), and raised a daughter, without a mother to guide her.
