UPDATE: Rain forcing Cinemondays East screening “Beauty & the Beast” at Skystage to Area 31

Today from Cinemondays East:

DUE TO RAIN, WE WILL BE SCREENING THIS FILM AT OUR USUAL SPOT: AREA 31.

Join us at Frederick’s SKYSTAGE for Jean Cocteau’s Beauty and the Beast. Movie begins at dusk. Admission Free. Donations accepted.

From Janusfilms.com: “Jean Cocteau’s sublime adaptation of Mme. Leprince de Beaumont’s fairy-tale masterpiece—in which the pure love of a beautiful girl melts the heart of a feral but gentle beast—is a landmark of motion picture fantasy, with unforgettably romantic performances by Jean Marais and Josette Day. The spectacular visions of enchantment, desire, and death in Beauty and the Beast (La Belle et la Bête) have become timeless icons of cinematic wonder.”

 

This film was to screen at Skystage today April 24 but afternoon rain is forcing the venue change.  Next Cinemondays at Skystage will be Charlie Chaplin’s “Modern Times” on May 22.  I wrote about the new monthly collaboration between Skystage and Cinemondays in last week’s 72 Hrs. You can read that here. 

And yes, there hasn’t been weekly updates here at WM. We’ll get back to more regular updates soon, just been busy with family stuff, etc.  Peace Love and resistance!

BIKE RIDE to “1984” Screening Tonight / resisting Fascism in Frederick

[they’re also raising some $ for Subversive Zine to publish their 2nd issue, more on that in a moment].
