Silver Screen Classic Movie Series continues Sept 1, with “Desire,” from 1936. Elegant jewel thief Marlene Dietrich pursues handsome, gawky, good-guy Gary Cooper all over Europe. Why? When she first bumped into him in Spain, she slipped the stolen pearls into his pocket. Now the lovely bandit wants them back. She also — of course — wants him.

This movie is shown at noon, 3:30 and 7:30 p.m. in the Beecher Room of the Auburn Library, 350 Nevada St. in Auburn. Presented by the Library, the movie is free. For information, call 530-878-7938 or visit
