Monday Movie Matinee - Stan & Ollie

Stan & Ollie Movie

Date change due to Labor Day holiday. Laurel & Hardy, one of the world's greatest comedy teams, set out on a variety hall tour of Britain in 1953. Diminished by age and with their golden era as the kings of Hollywood comedy now behind them, they face an uncertain future. As the charm and beauty of their performances shines through, they re-connect with their adoring fans.

Timothy Burris: The Poetry of the French Lute

Timothy Burris, Poetry of the French Lute, Early Music, Concert

We are very pleased to welcome Timothy Burris back to Scarborough for an evening of early music staged in the center of the Library. The French lute tradition of the 17th century was remarkable for the quality of the music and the honor accorded the leading lutenists of the day. But the lute tradition was also noteworthy for the influence it had on the broader music culture of the time–particularly keyboardists.
