Film club showing 'The Way'
Groovy Movie Club will show the film “The Way” on Friday, Nov. 16, in Waynesville.
A mostly organic potluck dinner will precede the screening at 6:15 p.m. The mission of the Groovy Movie Club is to show excellent films, both feature and documentary, with a message. A discussion will follow for all who wish to participate. The screening will take place at Buffy Queen’s green, solar-powered home in Dellwood. This event is free and open to the public and it meets the second or third Friday of every month.
Movie night marks Thanksgiving
The next installment of family movie night will be shown at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20, at the Marianna Black Library in Bryson City.
A drama based on a short story by Louisa May Alcott, struggling widow Mary Bassett (Helene Joy) is trying to support three children, but money is so tight that they can’t even afford a Thanksgiving turkey. An unexpected visit from her estranged — and moneyed — mother (Jacqueline Bisset) means Mary can prepare a proper holiday meal. However, it will take more than a feast to heal this family’s emotional wounds.
Movies are free to the public and projected onto an 8-by-10 foot screen, with a theater sound system. Popcorn, provided by the Friends of the Marianna Black Library, will be served in the library auditorium starting at 3:20 p.m.
