I don't know about you, but I feel ready for some cinematic therapy. Some good quality time spent in the dark, among friends and strangers, while the magic shadows dance on the screen. I know you can't completely avoid the bad news that is constantly reported, but a couple hours in a dark cinema helps me wash it away for while.
And even if your view of current affairs is rosier than mine, all I can think is, what a great time to cozy up in our community's best little cinema. And that's exactly what's happening Fri Sept 17.
Our first two films are perfect choices.
The documentary adaptation of Peter Wohlleben's hugely popular book, The Hidden Life of Trees, seems perfectly suited for a venue that has always offered great books and films.
And how could we resist a comedy like Best Sellers, where a struggling young publisher (Aubrey Plaza) and a cranky old author (Michael Caine) whose previous success came decades ago, hit the road to promote his latest book.
Trees, some in the forest, some becoming books. Books, some becoming bestsellers and some becoming movies. It all seems custom made for the Bookshelf Cinema's return. Check out the schedule HERE.
Advance tickets will go on sale Tue Sept 14, at which time we'll also announce whatever proof of vaccine requirements that will be in place.
I look forward to seeing you soon.
