on the Library Lawn
Bring your own snacks and lawn chairs for a free movie on the library lawn.
The first movie of the summer will be…
In honor of the library’s 98th birthday this year, we’ve chosen a movie that’s almost as old as BHML! This silent film will have you in stitches with classic scenes from one of Hollywood’s biggest stars of the era, Buster Keaton.
As an added bonus, this film features written text in lieu of a spoken script, so it’s essentially reading, which is very on brand!
Battling Butler (1926): Meek millionaire Alfred Butler goes on a camping excursion with his faithful servant. Once in the wilderness, Alfred ignores outdoor activities in favor of trying to woo a charming mountain girl, who wants nothing to do with her spoiled suitor. Trying to impress the girl, Alfred masquerades as boxing star “Battling” Butler.
