    • TBD

    If you enjoy going to the movies and love an opportunity to discuss the movie with other movie enthusiasts, then you should consider joining Critics’ Corner.  We meet at a member’s house.  After socializing over appetizers and some drinks, we then discuss and rate the two movies, which we will have already seen on our own.  Each attendee pays $5 to cover the cost of the drinks and brings either an appetizer or dessert.

    I want to thank May-Lis and Jay Gronlund for hosting our May meeting. We had lively discussions and rated:

    Tully – Which received a 7.0 out of 10.  The film is about Marlo, a mother of three including a newborn, who is gifted a night nanny by her brother.  Hesitant to the extravagance at first, Marlo comes to form a unique bond with the thoughtful, surprising, and sometimes challenging young nanny named Tully.

     Lean on Pete – It received a meager 5.3 out of 10. A teenager gets a summer job working for a horse trainer and befriends the fading racehorse, Lean on Pete.  Director: Andrew Haigh, Writers: Andrew Haigh, Willy Vlautin (novel), Stars: Travis Fimmel, Steve Zahn, Charlie Plummer.

    Critics Corner is on summer hiatus, June through August.  The next meeting of Critics’ Corner will be Friday, September 28th.  Please contat Jeannette Glazer with questions over the summer glazerje@yahoo.com 203-966-2063

     A Connecticut Christmas Carol  

    Get into the holiday spirit with this feel-good original Connecticut Christmas musical! 

    Some of the most beloved storytellers in Connecticut history come alive for a yuletide gathering you won’t forget. Famed actor and local legend William Gillette leaves his castle on the Connecticut River to adapt Dickens’ holiday classic in the 1920s. Local heroes Mark Twain, Harriet Beecher Stowe and P.T. Barnum make spirited appearances opposite Gillette’s Scrooge in a highly theatrical twist on a family favorite. Custom-made for Goodspeed with all-original music, here’s a tuneful, heartfelt confection spiced with enough Nutmeg State flavor to sweeten your season.  The trailer from last year can be seen HERE.

    We will carpool to picturesque Chester, CT for lunch and the matinee. Get your tickets now - only two tickets are left.  Once those are gone, we will be taking names for the wait list. 

    The cost is $75 per person which covers the cost of the ticket and transportation.  The cost of lunch will be split that day.  Drivers will be selected in order registered and reimbursed $50 for gas as a “thank you."

    Please sign up by downloading this form mail to Pamela Crum, 72 Norholt Drive, New Canaan, CT 06840, with your check for $75 made out to ENCORE.  If you are wait listed, you will be notified and your check held.

    Details:  We will meet at a New Canaan location TBD at 9:30.  The drive is about 1.5 hours on majors roads.  We should arrive in time to have lunch and walk around this charming town.  The show is 90 minutes long.  We will return as soon as the show is over and should be back to New Canaan approximately 5:00 – 5:30.

    Questions: Contact Pamela Crum
