Due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, all Pratt Library locations are closed out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our customers. Currently programs and events through April 11 have been cancelled. We will continue to update this page with more information as the situation evolves.

While our physical locations are closed, you may still use your Pratt Library Card to access Pratt Digital Library resources, including research materials, downloads, and streaming media for all ages.

Rollin' Reels - Cabin in the Sky

When compulsive gambler Little Joe Jackson (Eddie "Rochester" Anderson) dies in a drunken fight, he awakens in purgatory, where he learns that he will be sent back to Earth for six months to prove that he deserves to be in heaven. He awakens, remembering nothing and struggles to do right by his devout wife, Petunia (Ethel Waters), while an angel known as the General (Kenneth Spencer) and the devil's son, Lucifer Jr. (Rex Ingram), fight for his soul.

The feature runs continuously throughout the day and, when available, shown with subtitles/closed captioning. Snacks permitted!
