In 1888 a Frenchman named Louis Le Prince directed the very first motion picture. It was made with 11 clips and played for approximately 10 seconds. This short film, entitled “Roundhay Garden Scene”, merely showed a man riding a horse. Imagine how the audience felt as they viewed the first moving pictures! No one could have been more excited and in awe than this group. Today, we can get almost as excited as this group when we watch a newly released movie.
Fortunately, our modern movies usually captivate us a lot longer than 10 seconds. They temporarily transport us to new worlds, dimensions or different places in time. They impact our emotions, thoughts and opinions.
One of the best things about movies is they come in different genres. Do you like stories about love in the air? If so, romance might be for you. Are you easily bored? Try an action-packed movie. Are you a screamer? Then, try a horror movie. Or do you like Who-Done-Its? A suspense/thriller is probably more to your liking… Or you could be like many of us, like them all.
CCPL constantly gets new, exciting movies every week. We have so many movies to choose from, but so little time for most of us to watch them (but you can be a secret binge-watcher).
Below are some titles of the latest releases to help you narrow your cinematic search. Choose your favorite genre to find a movie or two… or three…or feel free to watch them all.
