Free Movie, Artist’s Reception Come to Alameda Main Library

Coming up on Monday, Nov. 4, is a free showing of the gothic horror classic “The Devil’s Backbone,” set for 5:30 at the Main Library. The film was directed by Guillermo del Toro.

It tells the story of a 12-year-old whose father died in the Spanish Civil War and then discovers that his orphanage is haunted. An acclaimed director, Del Toro also made “Pan’s Labyrinth.”

On exhibit this month at the Main Library are ceramic and mixed-media creations from Alamedan Susan Galleymore. A former marketing professional, Galleymore has turned her focus to colorful and unusual work, including unique ceramic tiles.

A reception with the artist will take place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 6, when she will discuss her work and share refreshments.
