Brooklyn Public Library is showing the movie The Landlord as part of its upcoming film series.
Beau Bridges plays Elgar Enders, a privileged WASP who buys a building in the transitional neighborhood of 1970 Park Slope, planning to evict all the occupants and construct a luxury home for himself.
Enders’ ideas are changed, however, when he becomes acquainted with the tenants, who include Marge, a fortune-teller; Professor Duboise, a black segregationist; the Copee family; and an invalid couple who live in the basement.
He decides to remain as the landlord and help fix the apartment building.
Reminisce with other movie-goers at the Central Library Dweck Center tonight (Wednesday) at 6.30 p.m.

Celebrity interior designer Kelli Ellis has written a new book called, “Do I look skinny in this house?
The book focuses on Design Psychology — the intentional creation of any space using simple and effective design principles.
Ellis said “Do I look skinny in this house?” is really about “Do I feel great in this house?”
“Turning your house into a haven is something that we obviously care about. We have entire TV channels devoted to making homes beautiful,” she said.
“All of us want to come home and we want to feel great, comfortable and productive in our homes. We really ask our homes to be everything to us. And this book can help you do just that.”
The new book will be available on Amazon on April 8.
