Free Movie Screenings at DFPL

We have several recurring movie series here at the library, with showings throughout the month. Check our calendars or sign up for our monthly newsletter for dates and times. Live screenings are held  in the Community Room.

CULT CLASSIC MOVIE NIGHT (hosted by Tim Deery)

Now 5+ years and running, our popular Cult Classic Movie Night program is shown once a month (usually on a Thursday night) and features films that have developed a “cult” following.  “Cult” films are known for their dedicated, passionate fan base, who form an elaborate subculture – members of which engage in repeated viewings, dialogue-quoting, and audience participation.

Whether live in-person in our screening room or virtually on Zoom after our audience has streamed the month’s movie, our discussions after are always lively, featuring trivia, debates, q&a’s, and plenty of laughs… and you never know who might show up!

Previous guests at CCMN have included: actors Michael St. Michaels and Sam Dissanayake (The Greasy Strangler), Eric Freeman and Darrel Guilbeau (Silent Night Deadly Night Part 2), Composer/Cinematographer Jean-Philippe Bernier (Le Matos, Summer of 84), Award winning Director Charles Lane (Sidewalk Stories), and Makeup/Special Effects Artist Dan Frye (Game of ThronesHarry PotterDr. Who).  For an example, check out the Dan Frye interview —-> HERE.  For more info —-> email


Whether they are called Movie Mondays, Friday Films, or Wednesday Matinees, we show   award-winning feature films once a month at 1:00 p.m. We may also show a film that was adapted from a literary work in conjunction with one of our book groups.

WEEKEND ACTION CINEMA (hosted by Tom Piller)


Join us for an adventure themed movie series where each month we will feature a different action packed film on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.


We love to highlight talented local independent filmmakers who can bring in an enthusiastic crowd.  If you grew up in in Westchester – or even better – one the local Rivertowns (Dobbs Ferry, Hastings-on-Hudson, Irvington, Ardsley) – and have a professional looking film that just needs a little extra push, we host a Local Filmmakers Spotlight program once a year, featuring a screening and Q&A with the filmmaker(s).

Previous LFS’s have included: Producer Andrew Beiner & Co-Executive Producer Michael Aker (Jonny’s Sweet Revenge), Director Jeff Frumess and Actor Jeffrey Allen Solomon (Romeo’s Distress), Director Matt Sullivan and Editor Dena Schumacher (Sobrevivo), Jay Kay (Horror Happens), and Producer Scott M. Weil (Once Upon A Superhero).  For more info and LFS rules & regulations —-> email
