Library to show two entertaining movies
The Hernando County Public Library System will have viewings of two movies Thursday at the Spring Hill Branch/Harold G. Zopp Memorial Library, 9220 Spring Hill Drive.
The first film to be shown will be Space Cowboys at 2 p.m. The movie, rated PG-13, is about four retired fighter pilots who assist NASA during a satellite crisis.
The 2000 movie stars Clint Eastwood (who also directs), Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland and James Garner.
The second movie viewing is geared toward teens and will be shown at 5:30 p.m. The 2005 Disney film Ice Princess will be shown. Brainy "ugly duckling" Casey Carlyle has never fit in, but always dreamed of being a figure skater champion. Against her mother's wishes of her focusing on getting into Harvard, Casey begins to train to become a U.S. figure skater.
The movie is rated G and stars Michelle Trachtenberg, Joan Cusack and Kim Cattrall.
There is no cost to attend either movie. Light refreshments will be served. The programs are sponsored by the Friends of the Library of Hernando County. For information, call 540-6391.
