If you missed last month's pricey world premiere of 25 Hill at the Akron Civic Theatre, you can catch it free tonight at the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library. Not only do you get to see a film about the soap box derby shot right in the Rubber City, but you'll also get to meet Mary Ethridge, the film's executive producer. A talk-back session and a slide show from librarian Christina Getrost — a local who appears in some of the derby scenes — follows. "It was fun to see all the stuff I had only seen in behind-the-scenes specials," Getrost says. "It's a nice family film, and we wanted to help spread the word." The flick screens at 6:30 p.m.; admission passes will be available beginning at 6. — Lydia Munnell 3512 Darrow Rd., Stow; 330-688-3295; smfpl.org/calendar.
