Filmmaker Event: On Monday July 23, at 7:30 one of my dearest friends, Lyda Kuth, is showing her beautiful and touching film Love and Other Anxieties at the Cape Ann Community Cinema. Lyda will be there to talk with the audience and answer questions. Many artists in our community know Lyda from her other role as an arts funder. She is the founding board member and executive director of the LEF Foundation.
Come say hello to Lyda and see her moving film. I’ll be there introducing Lyda and look forward to seeing you ! Click here for Advance Ticket Sales
Faced with the reality that her only child will flee the nest for college, film-funder turned filmmaker Lyda Kuth gets anxious not only about how her daughter will fare in today’s world of love and romance, but also about her relationship with her husband of 20 years. What will life be like after her daughter leaves? What is the real meaning of love, marriage, and long-term commitment?
Thank you Robert Newman for hosting the beautiful Liv Ullmann. She spoke before a rapt audience about her life and times with Ingmar Bergman and of her current projects.
Liv Ullmann and fan
Directing, acting, and screenwriting, her commitment to and joy in all she does was apparent. It was inspiring to know that, although she could easily rest upon her past accomplishments, she does all she does, and with such integrity. Liv’s husband Donald has been summering in Gloucester for over sixty years, she for nearly thirty, and they have come to think of Gloucester as home.
Donald Saunders and Deborah Coull
Immediately following the intimate discussion with Newton and Ullmann and the question and answer session with the audience was a screening of the her 2000 film Faithless, written by Bergman and directed by Ullmann.
Mad scramble to find additional chairs for sold-out event!
The three-year mark has long been a Big Brass Ring of sorts for small business owners. To weather so many days without hemorrhaging red ink is an accomplishment in any economy. We are happy to report that on October 1, we here at The Cape Ann Community Cinema will celebrate three whole years serving the North Shore’s die-hard film fans. And we couldn’t have done it without you.
Liv Ullmann and Robert Newton
To celebrate the start of our fourth year, we are kicking off 3 months of programming blocks: September is ‘A Foreign Affair’ (films from other countries), October marks the return of ‘DoctoberFest’ (all documentaries) and November 3-20 is The 2nd Annual Cape Ann Film Festival.
You may or may not have visited with us yet, and you may or may not have heard about the very different rules we have regarding our giant, comfortable, couch-and-recliner-bedecked living room. Yes, you can bring a meal with you (but leave the movie snacks at home). Just follow our “3S” Rule – mind the smell, the sound and the slop (and no Hibachis), and like you would on a trip to Jellystone National Park, carry out what you carry in.
Whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned Cinema veteran, please visit with us soon. As always, we promise to make your experience a memorable one, just as your support of this crazy thing of ours has been so wonderful for us for the last three years.
