This month, Belfast Free Library's December Friday Night Flix offers a “local rewind” of films from the city’s favorite local venue. Programmers Karen Gleeson and Paul Sheridan are featuring second looks at quality dramas from the last couple of years, including some Academy Award winners.

All films are screened free, Fridays at 7 p.m. in the Abbott Room at the library, 106 High St. If heavy snow is falling then, the week’s film will be shown the next evening, Saturday, also at 7 p.m.

Next up, on Dec. 15, is “Loving” (2016, UK/USA). This is a fictional version — there was a recent documentary — of the story of Richard and Mildred Loving. The couple’s arrest in 1960s Virginia began a legal battle that would end with the Supreme Court's historic decision allowing interracial marriage. The movie runs 123 minutes and is rated PG-13 for thematic elements.

The film is in English, but the series always puts on the subtitles for good measure. There will be no screening on Dec. 22; this month’s series will conclude Dec. 29 with “Arrival” (2016, USA).
