"All literature is gossip." Or so says Truman Capote, the writer of the novella-turned movie Breakfast at Tiffany's, and even a bit of "non-fiction." To celebrate this renaissance writer, the Public Library presents Truman Capote Goes To The Movies. The six films cover a wide and diverse range: films Capote wrote as a hired scriptwriter, films based on Capote's two greatest books, a film Capote starred in (!), and a film based on Capote's life. Tonight's feature is the one most associated with actress Audrey Hepburn as she tramps around New York City, jiving the locals for $50 for the powder room, running from a serious case of "the mean reds," and falling in love. The next showing is In Cold Blood on March 3. 7 p.m. Free. Wachovia Theater, ImaginOn, 300 E. 7th St. www.plcmc.org.
