Inside Windham


‘Light Between Oceans’

“The Light Between Oceans” will be shown at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 15, at the Windham Public Library. The movie is about an Australian World War I veteran (Michael Fassbender), who takes a job as a lighthouse keeper on an isolated island. He meets his future wife at the nearest coastal town, and the two begin their new life alone at the lighthouse. Once settled, a lifeboat washes ashore with a newborn inside, and they raise the infant as their own. The movie is based on a novel by M.L. Stedman. Snacks will be provided at both free showings and no RSVP is necessary. Call 892-1908 for more details.
