Comment: Prefer Mystery Movies

Library patron comment submitted at a movie screening:
Prefer mystery movies & movies that are not silent. Thank you.

Library staff reply:
Carnegie-Stout Public Library shows a movie suitable for adult audiences one evening each month. We try to show movies from a broad range of genres and eras in hopes of appealing to as many people as we can. We have shown several mystery movies over the last few years, including The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Maltese Falcon, Double Indemnity, Witness for the Prosecution, Vertigo, The Killing, The Thief, Murder on the Orient Express, The Departed, and Shutter Island. All of these had sound.

Of course we will continue to show more mystery movies in the future. When selecting titles, we must be able to acquire non-theatrical public performance rights for the movies, and they must be readily available on new DVDs. If you have specific titles you'd like us to consider, please let our library staff know in person, by email at or by phone at 563-589-4225.
