With spring finally arriving in Waldo County, the Belfast Free Library’s Friday Night Flicks film series will take the opportunity to catch up on a pair of films that were postponed due to bad weather over the course of the winter.

All films will be shown at 7 p.m. in the Abbott Room of the library, 106 High St. and are presented free of charge.

First up, on May 13, will be the 1989 winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, “Cinema Paradiso.” A famous film director returns to his home town and reminisces about his childhood, when he worked as the projectionist at the local theater; his friendship with the projectionist, Alfredo; and the lives of his fellow town folk, all reflected through the movies shown at the Cinema Paradiso.

A modern film noir, “The Usual Suspects,” will be shown on May 20. Kevin Spacey won an Academy Award for his role in this fine ensemble drama, which Entertainment Weekly chose as one of the 13 must-see heist movies. “The Usual Suspects” contains one of the great twist endings in movie history.
