THOMASTON — The Friends of the Thomaston Public Library presents Friday Night Film Series at 6:30 p.m.

Erika will be unavailable on November 1 and November 8. Friday Night Films will resume on November 15.

November 15 - Murder She Said

1961  NR  81 Minutes

British national treasure Margaret Rutherford makes her first appearance as the famed Miss Marple in this sly, engaging mystery based on Agatha Christie’s 4:50 from Paddington.

Miss Marple sees a strangulation aboard a passing train, then follows a trail of baffling clues to manor house inhabited by a quarrelsome family. There, she takes a job as a domestic and discovers the strangled body. But no murderer is a match for Miss Marple.

November 22 - Murder at the Gallop

1963  NR  81 Minutes 

Margaret Rutherford returns as amateur detective Miss Marple in a whodunit based on Agatha Christie’s After the Funeral. This time she’s joined by a partner, the droll Robert Morley. Together they canter along a country lane, ankle across a dance floor, spark a genteel amour — and pursue an ingenious killer who thinks a world without Miss Marple would be a far, far better place.

November 29 - Murder Ahoy

1964  NR  93 Minutes

Miss Marple navigates treacherous waters to catch a maritime killer! Margaret Rutherford steers her third course as spinster sleuth Miss Marple, sailing full speed into mystery and mayhem on the high seas. And it isn’t just her rapier-sharp mind that gets a workout. When her demise seems imminent, Miss Marple proves why she was Ladies’ National Fencing Champion in 1931.
