Seen any good movies lately? You will at the next Movie Night at Phoenixville Public Library. On Thursday, October 13 at 6:45 PM, we will show “Platoon” (1986, rated R, running time 120 min.) on the big screen in the Community Education Room. The film is next in our countdown of the American Film Institute’s “100 Greatest Movies”. Considered by many to by the most realistic portrayal of the Vietnam War on film, the movie is based on director Oliver Stone’s own GI experiences in the war. Charlie Sheen, Willem Dafoe, Tom Berenger, and Forest Whitaker star. This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, call 610-933-3013, Ext. 32 or e-mail email@example.com. Phoenixville Public Library is located at 183 Second Avenue in Phoenixville, PA.
Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors. On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow. --- Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up. "The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything." Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store. --- Polka Dots remains open until the 16th, with hours on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The phone number is 610-935-5914.
