No, I speak not of Crocs, but of how the Providence Public Library is showing free movies on Mondays through August 31st. If nothing else, it’s a great time to take advantage of — ahhhhh — air conditioning. If you’re free this afternoon, go quick like bunny to the Central Library on Empire Street, where The Golden Compass airs at 1:30 p.m. If you’re stuck at work, don’t worry…I hear the book was way better.
Tonight, catch a 90-minute array of short film highlights from past Rhode Island Film Festivals. The RIFF, which runs this year from August 4th-9th, is New England’s only qualifying event for Academy Awards, and the library is airing 13 years’ worth of RIFF goodness.
Central Library auditorium, 3rd floor, 150 Empire Street, Providence, 7-9 p.m., free
