Mahomet Public Library
To celebrate Black History Month, the Mahomet Public Library is screening two movies at the library:
5 pm: Pixar’s Soul (rated PG)
Joe Gardner is an average guy teaching music in middle school whose real dream is to be a jazz musician. When he finally earns the chance to perform onstage, he has an accident that leaves him in a near-death state. As his soul is scheduled to proceed to the afterlife, he discovers that his body is still not dead. He escapes to a before-life place where he tries to negotiate a deal so he could return to Earth—before it’s too late.
6:45 pm: Respect (rated PG-13)
Following the rise of Aretha Franklin’s career from a young child singing in her father’s church’s choir to her international superstardom, “Respect” is the remarkable true story of the music icon’s journey to find her voice and become the Queen of Soul.
Participants at in-person library programs must follow the library’s COVID-19 policies, including those related to masking and social distancing. These policies may change as guidance from local, state, and federal health agencies change, so check their website and library signage for current requirements.
