Adaptations — films adapted from other media — is this month’s theme for Belfast Free Library’s Friday Night Flix. All screenings are free and take place at 7 p.m. in the Abbott Room of the library, 106 High St.

The Adaptations series concludes March 23 with “Capote” (2005, USA/Canada). Based on Gerald Clarke’s biography, the film focuses on perhaps the most significant and sensational period of Truman Capote’s life.

After reading about a murder on a Kansas farm in 1959, Capote convinces his editor at The New Yorker to let him travel there to cover the story; tagging along is his childhood friend, Harper Lee (author of “To Kill a Mockingbird”). What they find becomes the basis for Capote’s most famous book, “In Cold Blood.” “Capote” was nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Picture. The late Philip Seymour Hoffman took home the Oscar for Best Actor.

There is no screening March 30.
