Movies Under Moonlight: "What About Bob?"
The West End Civic Association is hosting FREE family-friendly movies on Elizabeth Park's East Lawn on the third Thursday of three months this summer. I am posting these for those who want to attend, and will advise closer to the dates if I will be hosting a gathering location or if someone else will be hosting. June 21st - "What About Bob?" - "A successful psychotherapist (Richard Dreyfuss) loses his mind after one of his most dependent patients, an obsessive-compulsive neurotic (played by Bill Murray), tracks him down during his family vacation." USA, 1991, 99 minutes, PG for mild language, comic violence and some innuendo. July 19th - "The Sound of Music" August 16th - "A League of Their Own" Bring your own blanket or chairs, bug spray, picnic items (snacks, beverages), and if the weather is bad that night the film may be cancelled or rescheduled. Check the WECA website - westend.org - if you are concerned.

What we're about

Let's get together to see films that most people don't want to see because... You have read subtitles or... the actors look like you and me and not the beautiful Hollywood stars. Hartford has at least 7 screens in the area dedicated to alternative cinema (Cinema City at Bow-Tie (4), CineStudio (Trinity College), Aetna Theatre at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art and Real Art Ways). There are also foreign films shown in Bloomfield and at Wesleyan (a great secret movie place). Most of the films that I see at the national (and some from the international) film festivals that I attend show up in Hartford. If you enjoy venturing outside of mainstream film, have (or want to increase) eclectic tastes or are at least curious, this group is for you. My interests lie in Bollywood, small cinema, thrillers, westerns, almost anything that is shown in a movie house. Let's go see more movies.
