Potluck and a Movie Night

Category: Visual Arts

Every other Tuesday starting November 27th

Bogart and Bacall


Emerson Hall, Court St.

Our third season of potluck suppers and a movie begins on November 27th. Last year's series was another successful season with 9 excellent films introduced by Castine residents who selected a favorite film for the series. Some interesting background is given, scenes to watch for, who turned down the role, where the story originated, amusing stories from behind the scenes, etc., all of which make the viewing more interesting.

If you are willing to host a film, please contact Debby Neve (326-7100) to fill in the schedule. Try to pick movies that, perhaps, everyone has not seen before or even knows about. An exellent on-line resource for movies is imdb.com.

Dates planned for the series are: Nov. 27, Dec. 11, Jan. 15, Jan. 29, Feb. 12, Feb 26, Mar. 12, Mar. 26, Apr. 16, Apr. 23, May 7, May 21. So these are every other Tuesday. Watch for announcements in emails and in the Patriot.

Potluck starts at 5:30 followed by the film at 6:30 (you can opt to just come for the film)
