Spanish Night, acrylic on wood, 26 x 22 inches, by Scott Brouard, 2002
SUMMER FILM FESTIVAL
Fun on a summer Saturday night — classic films from the days
gone by — maybe when you were a kid, or at least younger. Maybe you
missed it the first time around. Sit on the grass, bring a blanket or some
lawn chairs; bring your favorite snacks and drinks or have some of the ones
provided or some of the ones for sale.
The movies are projected on the side of the mill; you'll have to ignore the sound of the crickets and the 16mm projector but you can talk if you're quiet about it, you can get up and walk around and there is an intermission while we change the reels. If the weather changes, it's everyone into the mill. If it's really bad we'll postpone the whole event. If in doubt or you want to know what's showing, please call ahead. Watch this page for the dates.
There is usually a cartoon and or a short animated film before the featured cinematic classic just like at the Strand on Main Street. Come late or leave early; your kids can wear their pajamas — the projectionist, Tom, wears his sometimes. Informality is the watchword. It all starts when it's dark enough.
