MONDAY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES is a success! Averaging more than 30 people attending, movie night has become as much a social event as it is a monthly food drive benefiting the Palm Beach County Food Bank. So far, we have collected 161 pounds of non-perishable food; our goal for the first year is 1000 pounds (1/2 ton). If you haven’t yet joined us, please consider it. REMEMBER: price of admission is a donation of non-perishable food items.
On Monday April 6th, the movie will be Julia, staring Vanessa Redgrave, Jane Fonda, Jason Robards, Maximillian Schell, Hal Holbrook, and Meryl Streep. From Pentimento the memoirs of late playwright Lillian Hellman,Julia covers those years in the 1930s when Lillian attained fame with the production of her first play “The Children’s Hour” on Broadway. Not surprisingly, Julia centers on Lillian’s relationship with her lifelong friend, Julia. It is a relationship that goes beyond mere acquaintance and one for which the word “love” seems appropriate. While Julia attends the University in Vienna, studying with such luminaries as Sigmund Freud and Albert Einstein, Lillian suffers through revisions of her play with her mentor and sometimes lover Dashiell Hammett at a New England beach house. After becoming a celebrated playwright, Lillian is invited to a writers’ conference in Russia. Julia, having taken up the battle against fascism, enlists Lillian to smuggle money through Nazi Germany which will assist in the Anti-Fascist cause. It is a dangerous mission especially for a Jewish intellectual on her way to communist Russia
