PALMDALE – The Palmdale City Library will present a free lecture and screening titled “The First Movies” this coming Monday, April 8 at 6 p.m. in the Community Room of the Library, located at 700 East Palmdale Boulevard.

Clips from classic black and white films including “Voyage to the Moon” and “The Great Train Robbery” will be shown.
“Whether you are a serious movie buff or a casual movie goer, ‘The First Movies’ presentation will be an entertaining, educational and fun way to spend a Monday evening,” Vose said.
