The Michigan City Public Library and the City of Michigan City are collaborating again this year to bring family films to the Jaycee Stage in Washington Park. The final showing of the summer is The Lego Movie, an original computer animated story which follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO mini-figure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously unprepared. Rated PG. The movie begins at dusk.
Movies in Washington Park: The Lego Movie - 8:15 pm

Disney's Muppets Most Wanted takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe's most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid, Dublin and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine, the world's number one criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit the Frog, and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon. This film is rated PG and runs 1 hour and 47 minutes. (In the event that Muppets Most Wanted is not available, we will show Frozen.)

April Center will review Love and Terror on the Howling Plains of Nowhere by Poe Ballantine. For well over twenty years, Ballantine traveled America, taking odd jobs and wondering the big whys. At age forty-six he settled with his Mexican wife in Chadron, Nebraska, where they had an autistic son. He wrote about his experiences as a wanderer and his observations of America and its people, but one day in 2006 his neighbor, a math professor, disappeared. Ninety-five days later, the professor was found burned to death and tied to a tree in the hills behind the campus where he taught. No one, including law enforcement, understood the circumstances. Since Ballantine knew all the players: the suspects, the sheriff, the police involved, he and his kindergarten son set out to find out what might have happened. Love and Terror is not only a six-year examination of the case, but of Ballantine's eccentric High Plains town, his rocky marriage, and his purportedly autistic son. Westchester Public Library will also host this review Thursday, August 21 at 2:00p m at the Westchester Township Historical Museum.
Bookmarks: Love & Terror on the Howling Plains of Nowhere - 2:00 pm
