Albuquerque’s Books to the Big Screen free movie series celebrates books that have been adapted to film. I’m celebrating too as you don’t have to pay a cent to enjoy these film favorites.

The series runs through January 2013 in an initiative by Albuquerque and Bernalillo County Libraries, partnering with various screening locations including the Guild Cinema and the South Broadway Cultural Center.  There are movies here for adults and kids, starting on January 5.

    • January 5 at 12:30 pm  : Wise Blood directed by John Huston, based on the Flannery O’Connor novel, at  The Guild Cinema.
