Silent Film Series: The Cameraman

January 13, 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Tickets are $10, Students and Seniors $8.
BUY TICKETS
Join silent film aficionado Rob Mermin to enjoy this classic.

Photographer Buster (Buster Keaton) meets Sally (Marceline Day), who works as a secretary for the newsreel department at MGM, and falls hard. Trying to win her attention, Buster abandons photography in order to become a news cameraman. In spite of his early failures with a motion camera, Sally takes to him as well. However, veteran cameraman Stagg (Harold Goodwin) also fancies Sally, meaning Buster will need to learn how to film quickly before he loses his job.

Featuring live accompaniment with maestro Bob Merrill —back by popular demand—on HCA’s Steinway.

January 19, 2019 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Tickets available soon.
Join Craftsbury-based filmmakers Kathy Swanson and Vince O’Connell for a special screening of their independent feature film “Farmer of the Year.” A film that delicately blends the comedy and drama of life, the story follows Hap Anderson, (Barry Corbin) a widowed 83-year-old Minnesota farmer, who sells his family farm and finds himself adrift and staring a short future in the face. Driven by the possibility of showing up with an old flame and impressing his old army buddies, he sets out to attend his 65th WWII reunion in California with his directionless and unreasonably self-confident granddaughter, Ashley (Mackinlee Waddell). Each with their own issues and agendas, they head west in a dilapidated Winnebago. As the journey progresses so does their relationship and they begin to appreciate each other while discovering that being young and being old aren’t all that different.

There are many Camino routes throughout Europe and the Camino Frances, which has been a pilgrim route for over 1,000 years, has become the most popular route to Santiago.

They will show photos and videos, talk about their experiences and play medieval and traditional music from the Camino on their newly acquired Galician bagpipes and harp, lute, guitar, recorders, whistle, clarinet and more.

Admission is by donation (“Donativo” in Camino lingo). All proceeds will go to support the Plainfield Opera House Concert Series. Refreshments available.
