Friday Film Series: Brigadoon (1954)


Beat the heat this summer with a series of movies at the library. One Friday a month come to the library and enjoy snacks with your friends in the comfort of the air conditioned library. Bring your own beverages or buy them from the Friends of the Library cafe.

This month’s movie is Brigadoon. Gene Kelly, Cyd Charisse and Van Johnson star in this classic American film musical about a powerful love and the magical town Brigadoon. When two Americans, Tommy Albright (Kelly) and Jeff Douglas (Johnson), happen upon the innocent and magical town nestled in the Scottish Highlands, Tommy falls in love with Brigadoon’s Fiona Campbell (Charisse). But this wondrous town appears only one day every 100 years–never long enough to be corrupted by the outside world–and Tommy can only stay with Fiona if loves her enough to forever leave the life he knows.
