Suspense is the theme for November in the Belfast Free Library’s “Friday Night Flix” film series. The month features four memorable suspense films dating back as far as the 1940s. All the screenings are free and take place at 7 p.m. in the Abbott Room of the library, 106 High St.

Next up, on Nov. 13, is “The Manchurian Candidate,” a true classic from 1962. Are dreams real or just figments of our imagination? That’s the question a Korean War vet (played by Frank Sinatra) must wrestle with. At issue is whether or not the soldiers in his platoon were brainwashed during their captivity in Communist Manchuria … and if so, is there time to stop the assassination of a presidential candidate? This political nail-biter also stars Laurence Harvey, Angela Lansbury and Janet Leigh. The film was released the same week as the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Upcoming in the series are, Nov. 20, “Crimson Tide” (1995, USA); and, Nov. 27, “Fargo” (1996, USA).
