Greenwich Library presents cult films, biz programs and more in June

Greenwich Library cult films to screen Mad Max on June 11

Librarian Ed Morrissey’s monthly film series is devoted to bringing patrons classic cult movies both from Hollywood and around the world. On Thursday, June 11, at 6:30 p.m., Cult Films will screen the low budget classic, Mad Max, from 1979. Both film buffs and ingénues are welcome.

In Mad Max, a relentless Australian policeman (Mel Gibson) sets out to avenge his partner, his wife and his son, in the classic film that inspired The Road Warrior and Fury Road. Baby Boomers have fond memories of this Aussie gang movie set in the apocalyptic future. This film is in color, 90 minutes long and is rated R.

In the course of this series, Morrissey will cover a wide sweep of genres, comedies, crime noir, horror, thrillers, musicals, spaghetti westerns, Hitchcock, Fellini and more. Greenwich Library Cult Films, through the Library’s extensive DVD collection and online hoopla service, hopes to expose these fringe films to a much wider and appreciative audience

The Cult Films Series is open to all at no charge and is held in the Meeting Room. For more information contact Ed Morrissey at [email protected], visit or call 203-622-7918.

Histocial Perspective on Penn Station

Rick Abramson, 44 year veteran of the CT railways, will present ‘Penn Station: from Corporate Jewel to Corporate Vandalism’ on Saturday, June 13, from 2 to 3:30 p.m., in the Greenwich Library Meeting Room.

Longtime train aficionado Rick Abramson will cover the concept, design and construction of Penn Station, including the six tunnels under the North and East Rivers. Dozens of photos will be shown depicting the various stages of construction and eventual tragic demolition of this grand structure. The presentation will include a brief biography of A.J. Cassatt who was president of the Pennsylvania RR.

Since age 6, Rick Abramson had been fascinated with trains, both real and model. His dream of working for the railroad came true in February of 1968 when he was hired by the New Haven Railroad, holding a variety of positions over the years such as freight agent, station supervisor, locomotive engineer, train dispatcher and superintendent. Abramson recently retired as Superintendent of Operations for the Housatonic Railroad in Canaan, CT.

This program is open to all at no charge and will be held in the Meeting Room. Patrons of all ages are invited to participate. For more information email Local History Librarian Carl White at [email protected] or call 203-622-7948.
