Actor Nicolas Cage appears at the 70th edition of the Venice Film Festival, held in Venice, Italy, in August of 2013.

When it comes to Nicolas Cage films, picking which one to watch can be hard, but library patrons are invited to do just that.

The Kansas City Public Library's annual "Off the Wall" summer film series is offering something different this year: a chance for the audience to pick the movies.

When it came time to select which films to screen, Nicolas Cage's movies were chosen. Each month, two of his films are offered in a "Cage Match," where the public decides the winner by online voting. This month it's The Rock” vs. “Con Air.”

"Cage Match: The Rock vs. Con Air" at 8:45 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 19, at the Kansas City Public Library Central location, 14 West 10th St., Kansas City, Mo., 64105. Doors open at 8 p.m. Voting is now open until Aug. 12. RSVPs are required.
