Catch films at Columbia Pike the first and third Thursday of the month.

In celebration of banned boosk week  "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" [2002]

Charlie is a freshman. And while's he's not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. He's a wallflower--shy and introspective, and intelligent beyond his years, if not very savvy in the social arts. We learn about Charlie through the letters he writes to someone of undisclosed name, age, and gender, a stylistic technique that adds to the heart-wrenching earnestness saturating this teen's story. Charlie encounters the same struggles that many kids face in high school--how to make friends, the intensity of a crush, family tensions, a first relationship, exploring sexuality, experimenting with drugs--but he must also deal with his best friend's recent suicide.

Rated PG-13, 102 minutes. 2012. Directed by Stephen Chbosky . Starring Logan Lerman, Emma Watson, and Ezra Miller.
