Schenectady Farmer's Market Lunch & "Trip To The Moon" Film Matinee at Proctors

We'll meet at noon to stroll the outdoor Schenectady Greenmarket on Jay Street around City Hall. We'll browse the booths and select our favorite lunch items from Peruvian, Indian, Cajun, Vietnamese and Mediterranean cuisines. If you also want to do a bit of grocery shopping, bring your trusty cloth bags and a cooler for perishables.

For the film only, meet between 1:45 - 1:55pm for the matinee at the GE Theater at Proctors. This will be an interesting follow up screening for those who've seen Hugo.

We'll see two films for one price: $5.

    Fair weather gave us a chance to enjoy shopping and eating delicious ethnic lunch items at SGM. Interesting documentary conveying the great lengths that many went to in restoring this color copy. Seeing it added more depth of understanding to "Hugo" & "The Artist". It was lovely to see the final restored color tinted version of "Trip To The Moon". Using a new age music score seemed to be a disjointed treatment of the film - which was so sensitively & meticulously restored in all other ways so the end product would remain true to the time period in which it was made. Had fun with all who attended the event!

    I'm still planning to attend the Farmer's Market for lunch with a meeting spot in front of The Open Door Bookstore from 11:50 am to noon. Please check the site again in the morning for the most current weather based event details.
