Phantoms of the Hudson: Great Estates of a Lost River World with Guest Speaker Monca Randall
Tuesday, May 9
1:15 PM - 2:15 PM

Phantoms of the Hudson Valley is an illustrated slide program about the lost river world along the Hudson, with its abandoned and ruined castles and the amazing people who built them. Some say that many of the stately mansions along the Hudson River are haunted by ghosts. Join renowned photographer Monica Randall when she explores the mystery and splendor of 28 palatial estates in this beautifully illustrated lecture. Ms. Randall tells fascinating stories of the people who lived in these homes, recapturing a bygone era with an old Rolliflex camera and a treasure trove of period costumes. Her sepia-toned photographs take us on a tour of these architectural beauties, with their spacious ballrooms, rambling porticos, vaulted ceilings and lovely personal touches.

Cult Classic Movie Night
Double Feature
Thursday, May 18
6:00 - 9:00 PM
Doors open at 5:45 PM

Dazed and Confused: Like George Lucas' American Graffiti, Richard Linklater's Dazed and Confused is an affectionate look at the youth culture of a bygone era. While Lucas took aim at the conservative 1950s, Linklater jumps ahead a generation to the bicentennial year of 1976 to celebrate the joys of beer blasts, pot smoking and Frampton Comes Alive. Set on the last day of the academic year, the film follows the random activities of a sprawling group of Texas high schoolers as they celebrate the arrival of summer, their paths variously intersecting at a freshman hazing, a local pool parlor and finally at a keg party 102 minutes/Rated R.

Everybody Wants Some: Dubbed a "spiritual sequel" to his 1993 coming-of-age/hangout film Dazed and Confused, Everybody Wants Some!! finds writer/director Richard Linklater shifting his focus from high schoolers in 1976 to college life in 1980. Freshman Jake (Blake Jenner) is the newest addition to the baseball team at a small Texas college, and he is quickly swept up in the rowdy, competitive atmosphere of the house where the entire squad lives. As he and the other players crash one party after the next in search of a good time (and good-looking gals), he finds himself falling in love with an artsy student named Beverly (Zoey Deutch). Tyler Hoechlin, Ryan Guzman, Wyatt Russell, Glen Powell, J. Quinton Johnson, Will Brittain, and Juston Street co-star in this hilarious comedy, which made its world premiere at the 2016 South by Southwest Film Festival. 116 minutes/Rated R.
