Every Friday Night Folk U and Linnaea are enthusiastically hosting Cinema and Dinner nights.
Doors at 6:15, light dinner concession available. Movie starts at 7pm. Suggested Donation of $5. November's theme is "Small Town Life". Our curated selections will focus on the trials, humanity and loves unfolding in small towns everywhere, perhaps we can all relate? This weeks selection is the classic "The Last Picture Show". It is one of the key films of the American cinema renaissance of the seventies. Set during the early fifties, in the loneliest Texas nowheresville to ever dust up a movie screen, this is an aching portrait of a dying West. Featuring evocative black-and-white imagery and profoundly felt performances, this hushed depiction of crumbling American values and remains the pivotal film in the career of the invaluable director and film historian Peter Bogdanovich. This film received an R rating for adult situations, some nudity and violence. Youth under 16 will need parental accompaniment.
