Bad Movie Nights Are Back


That's right everyone, the Main branch and Ottawa Bad Movie Nights are pleased to bring you a second season of bad movie nights. Last season was bad, but this season might be even worse (that's good though, right?).

On May 1st, we will be launching the season with Hobgoblins at 6:30PM in the Main branch auditorium. After escaping from a film studio vault, alien creatures wreak havoc. The security guard who accidently set them free is determined to stop them with the assistance of his friends. Come join us for the fun as these pesky little hobgoblins try to take over.

Bad Movie Nights screenings are every first Wednesday of the month and also feature trailers and short films before the main feature. On top of hobgoblins, the second season promises phantoms, evil birds, monsters and maybe even a samurai...cop?

All events are free to attend. Check back here to keep up with Bad Movie Nights and other film screenings at the Main branch:


Author's note: There are no bad movies.


If you haven't been to a Bad Movie Night, do check it out.

It's more than a movie: there are also bad movie trailers, cartoons, short films and other odd bits.

It's truly a (bad) night at the movies. Don't miss it!
