  1. Why such old movies???? Please update them.

    • Hi Suzy. We have quite a few viewers who enjoy the classics, so they have become a staple in these movies offered by the Friends of the R.H. Johnson Library. But they are interweaving newer films as well on a periodic basis.

      Hello Barb. Your comment under the Stardust movies post confused me at first. If you’re talking about a concert performance tonight (Friday), you can give the Box Office a call at 623-544-6093 for assistance.
