Brehm to host Family Movie Night

MT. VERNON — — Since the inaugural movie night at Brehm Memorial Library in April, the Family Movie Night program at the library has proven to be quite a success.

Bill Pixley, director at the library said each monthly movie night has brought out between 25 and 40 families each time.

“We have several families that come out regularly and almost every time we have someone new,” he said.

The movies shown are animated films, and Pixley said they have almost every movie made by Disney and Pixar studios. Children must be accompanied by an adult and adults must be accompanied by children to attend the movie nights, he added.

The movies shown are done in series. So far there have been movie series on cars and toys.

“There are a lot of animated series out there,” Pixley said.

People can also suggest movies they would like to see. Pixley said the movie that will be playing tonight was not one he had originally planned on, but one suggested by one of the children who attended a previous movie night.

The library pays $500 a year and can play any major movie.

“We have a budget for programs,” he explained. “It pays for that [movie night] and speakers and bands and concerts and materials for the crafts program.”

He said the main goal of the movie nights is to provide quality entertainment to families who may not be able to afford taking their children to the movie theater.

The library provides popcorn and water free of charge. Families are welcome to bring their own snacks if they wish, he added. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the movie will begin at 7 p.m.

The names of the movies cannot be advertised outside of the library because of licensing agreements, but Pixley said those who may have questions can contact the Brehm library at 242-6322.
