It just wouldn't be summertime in Charlotte if the Main Library wasn't once again presenting its Summer Film Series, a popular Queen City mainstay since 1975. This year's theme is Shakespeare at the Movies, and the lineup begins with Kenneth Branagh's 2006 adaptation of As You Like It, starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Kevin Kline and Alfred Molina. Although this was produced as a theatrical feature (which is how it played internationally), it was only shown stateside on HBO, meaning that local audiences can catch this romantic comedy in its big-screen splendor. Seven more Shakespeare works will be screened through early September, including Laurence Olivier's Richard III, Branagh's Henry V, and Akira Kurosawa's brilliant Macbeth rendition, Throne of Blood. Free. 1:30 p.m. Wachovia Playhouse, ImaginOn. 704-416-0252.
