Summer Cinema

Movie TheaterOne of the best things to do over the summer (besides read, duh) is to go to the movies. Which ones are you looking forward to seeing this summer?

Below is a list of must-see, buzz-worthy summer movies*. There’s a movie for everyone out there. Click on the movie title to see  synopsis of it or watch the trailer right now! The ones I’m most excited to see include The Fault in Our Stars, Magic in the Moonlight, How to Train Your Dragon 2, and The Giver.

And of course, if you can’t make it to the theater for one reason or other, you can always come to the library and check out something from our great selection of movies. Maybe you missed out on last year’s Oscar noms or you need to see the first Amazing Spiderman. You might want to read a particular book before you see the film about it. We have something for everyone. You can even wait until these movies are out on DVD and in the library. The sky is the limit! Share what you’re most excited to see below in the comments, and happy viewing!
