That Thing You Do (PG) - Wily band manager Mr. White helps a small town band achieve big time success when they release a Beatles-style pop song in 1964. Pennsylvania band the "Oneders" become a sensation after their drummer breaks his arm, and is replaced by jazz enthusiast, Guy Patterson, who injects something a bit different into their music. This movie is funded by the Friends for the Public Library.

Do the Rock

This year’s theme for the ABQ-BernCo Public Library’s summer reading program is “Libraries Rock!” In addition to encouraging reading among kids, tweens, teens and adults and hosting a plethora of seasonal music and reading programs at libraries around the city, the city/country initiative is hosting a series of musical film screenings at the KiMo Theatre. On Wednesday, July 25, for example, it’s the 1996 film That Thing Your Do! starring Tom Hanks as the manager of a midwestern pop band hoping to take America by storm in 1964. It’s not based on a book or anything, but … well, I guess it rocks. Admission is free and open to the public. The film starts at 7pm. KiMo is located at 423 Central Ave. NW.
