Classic Comedies for Midsummer Nights has been the theme for July for the Belfast Free Library’s Friday Night Flix film series. All the movies are free and screened at 7 p.m. in the air-conditioned Abbott Room of the library, 106 High St.

The July 31st film is “High Anxiety” (1977, USA), written and directed by Mel Brooks as a parody of suspense movies in general — and an homage to Alfred Hitchcock films in particular. In fact, Hitchcock worked on the screenplay with Brooks. “High Anxiety” stars Brooks as a psychiatrist who is framed for murder. In order to clear his name, he must confront his own psychiatric condition: fear of heights. The film also stars many of the Brooks regulars including Madeline Kahn, Harvey Korman and Cloris Leachman.
