☀ New:  Rififi

☀ New:  Route One/USA

Traveling from Maine to the Florida Keys, an exploration of our people, communities, religions, politics and race relations.

☀ John Lewis: “Good Trouble”

Renting the film includes access to our livestream discussion, recorded August 17.  Contact CWC for details.

☀ Gordon Lightfoot
“If You Could Read My Mind” 

Canada’s greatest singer-songwriter shares his music and personal story. His poetic ballads tell stories that touch your heart and his silky baritone is exquisite.  Trailer, description, exclusive clips.

☀ 2020 Sundance Shorts
Film Descriptions, trailer, rental  Known to be eclectic and edgy (and sometimes mystifying), this year’s slate is more mellow than previous years, with comedy, drama and documentary from around the world. Featured are the Grand Jury Prize Winner & Nominees, in an 82-minute program of six short films.

☀ Talk to Us – What Are You Watching?   What are you watching online, in theatres, on TV? What are you reading, listening to or otherwise doing to nourish your mind and spirit?

What’s new on the movie circuit – a few new releases have hit as movie theatres open up – some worth venturing out for if you’re comfortable in a movie house, others not so much.

REMINDER: Previous Oscar Shorts patrons – save Saturday, October 3 and Saturday, October 10, 4:00 & 7:00 pm, for the rescheduled in-theatre screenings of OSCAR SHORTS Programs A & B. 
If you had tickets in March and were unable to attend, we need to hear from you quickly — please reply to this email ASAP and include your full name, original screening date and number in your party. This will be a small-group private event and we’ll contact ticket holders in the coming week. And thanks to all who responded via our last newsletter.

Thanks for your support – stay tuned as we bring new films to our virtual cinema and inch our way along to reopening the Garfield Theatre.
