DINNER AND A MOVIE SERIES
5:30 p.m. Dinner, 6:30 p.m. Movie
 
This series continues in 2015 with the 8th year of environmental films not normally seen in mainstream cinemas.  They will be presented in a “mid-screen format” (smaller than a theater but much bigger than a large screen TV) following a hearty winter feast in our dining room. Each film is selected on the basis of a thought-provoking environmental topic or for breath-taking cinematography. A discussion on the environmental themes and implications presented in the movies will follow. Join us for a fun and enlightening evening.
