Movie: Can-Can

The Plainview library presents two screenings, 2:30 and 7:30 p.m., of the film Can-Can.

Though her dancing delights patrons to no end, it also attracts the ire of a self-righteous judge (Louis Jordan), who aims to punish her by photographing her in the act, then falls for her, much to the chagrin of her boyfriend Francois Durnais (Frank Sinatra). 2 hours 21 minutes (Not Rated)
