|During the Austen in Autumn film festival, you can see some of the best movies based on Jane Austen's novels for free.|
And Jane Austen wrote some of the best stories ever, so it's not surprising that her six novels have repeatedly been turned into movies, miniseries and even YouTube series.
As part of Austen in Autumn—our month-long celebration of all things Jane—we've picked four of the best Austen-influenced films of all time and are screening them for free at Great Lakes Mall Atlas Cinemas.
The series begins this Thursday and the films include:
- Persuasion on Sept. 24
- Clueless on Oct. 1
- Sense and Sensibility on Oct. 8
- Bride and Prejudice on Oct. 15.
The film series is just one part of Austen in Autumn. For more information on our programs—which include everything from a citywide book chat about Austen's Persuasion to a special encore of Geauga Lyric Theater's Pride & Prejudice performance—visit www.mentorpl.org/austen.
Finally, Mentor Public Library would like to thank the generous financial support of The Friends of the Mentor Public Library, Mentor Community Arts Commission, Ohio Arts Council and Ohio Humanities Council for making Austen in Autumn possible, as well as the following organizations for providing time and resources to make Austen in Autumn the best it can be: Atlas Cinema; the City of Mentor; Cleveland Candle Company; Geauga County Ohio Bee Keepers; Geauga Lyric Theater Guild; Jakprints; Little Mountain Brewing Company; Local Tavern; Redhawk Grill; Sisters Tea Room; and Ten 10 Design.
