I set the start time at the time I am likely to head for the Aetna Theatre lobby. Feel free to come earlier to enjoy First Thursday! It starts at 5:00pm, costs just $5 (including the film) and is free to members and students with current ID - or in February, to anybody wearing RED! For February, the event will feature the opening of Deb Sokolow / MATRIX 166 complete with a tour by the artist; world music by Mikata, nationally renowned Hartford cartoonist Joe Young showing you how to create your own cartoon, fashions from Stackpole’s & Tuesday’s, and Chef Wheeler Del Toro will offer a cooking demo and tasting (seating limited. You can also sample beer with a free tasting by the Olde Burnside Brewing Company (pity they didn't use them in the film!). The Museum Café will be open for dinner; reservations are recommended because of the crowds.
