A Friendly Night at the Movies

The Friends and Lighthouse Cinema in downtown Pacific Grove have formed a trial partnership to support the Pacific Grove Library.  On the second Wednesday of February, March and April (February 11, March 11, and April 8), Lighthouse Cinema will donate 10% of the ticket price of everyone identifying themselves as a Friend. 

The partnership is called a Friendly Night at the Movies, but if you like your movies in the afternoon, that’s cool.  Just be sure to tell the person at the ticket counter that you’re a Friend – and thank them for their support of our Library.
