Fantasy is the theme for January in Belfast Free Library’s Friday Night Flix film series, featuring far-out films from the 1940s to the 2010s. All the screenings are free and take place at 7 p.m. in the Abbott Room of the library, 106 High St.

The series continues Jan. 12 with “Fantasia” (1940, USA), a bucket-list movie to see on a big screen. In 1937, during a chance meeting with conductor Leopold Stokowski, Walt Disney proposed the idea of marrying classical music with animation and film history was made. One often thinks of soundtracks as accompaniment for the visual images. In this case, it’s just the opposite; the visuals accompany the soundtrack — and what a soundtrack. It features Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony, “The Rite of Spring,” The Nutcracker Suite, “A Night on Bald Mountain,” “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” and Bach’s Toccata and Fugue.

The Fantasy selections continue Jan. 19 with “Midnight in Paris” (2011, Spain/USA/France); and Jan. 26, “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” (2004, USA). If heavy snow is falling at show time, the film will be shown the next evening, Saturday, also at 7 p.m.
