Apparently we are not the only ones who are getting caught up in the Gatsby frenzy, that is building ahead of the release of the latest film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s literary classic. Thanks to our friends at the great Early Word blog, we learned that even faux conservative talk show hosts are creating book clubs! We have some extra copies on order, so stop in and read the book, before the movie comes out this coming weekend.

With Spring continuing to delay its arrival, despite what the calendar says, and this being a vacation week, you might be looking for an indoor activity for the kids! We have just the ticket, a screening of the new Disney animated feature, “Wreck it Ralph”. We will be showing the movie tomorrow April 3rd beginning at 2pm. Admission is free and refreshments will be available.
We originally planned to show this film in January, but Mother Nature had other ideas. So we decided to extend our schedule a week and finish off with a romantic swashbuckler. When you combine the “Duke” with Lee Marvin, add in a sultry Dorothy Lamour, you have a volatile combination! Showtime as always is 6pm and admission is free. As a special treat, we will be having some pizza and soft drinks brought in for anyone interested. We will resume the series in the fall.
We are winding down our classic movie season and finishing up with one that is sure to cast a spell on its viewers. Originally a Broadway musical, “Brigadoon” debuted in 1954, starring Gene Kelly, Van Johnson and Cyd Charisse. So after having your fill of all things Irish this weekend, join us on Monday for some Highlands romance! Showtime is 6pm and admission is free. Our final movie for this part of the series is a rescheduled showing of “Donovan’s Reef“, which will take place on March 25th. The series will resume in the fall.
