Summer’s nearly here! Instead of blockbuster sequel movies, consider the Berkeley Public Library’s new film series, “Super Cinema”.  Each month we’ll explore a different theme or genre on Friday afternoons at 3 p.m.at the Central Library, 2090 Kittredge (at Shattuck), in the 3rd floor Community Meeting Room. June is devoted to Satirical Cinema, with a great lineup.  On June 8, we’ll show “Waiting for Guffman” (1997), followed by “Little Miss Sunshine” (2006) on June 15, “The Gods Must Be Crazy” (1981) on June 22 and “Thank You for Smoking” (2006) on June 29. July focuses on the career of Marilyn Monroe.  During Our Weeks with Marilyn, we’ll start with “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” (1953) on July 6, view “All About Eve” (1950) on July 13, continue with “Monkey Business” (1952) on July 20 and finish with “The Seven Year Itch”  (1955) on July  27.
