Dinner and a Movie 

Dinner 5:30p.m.

Movie 6:30p.m.

This series continues in 2016 with the 9th year of environmental films not normally seen in mainstream cinemas. The movies are 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.

Cost: Dinner $15 each. Movie and discussion is free.

My Life as a Turkey - April 12

He learned their language and their ways, and in time, he became about as close to being a turkey in human skin as nature permits.
