Movie Filmed in Glens Falls Streaming Online Now
Radium Girls, largely filmed at the Union Square building in Glens Falls, recently launched into virtual cinemas. The independent film stars Joey King, who gained fame with Ramona and Beezus and The Kissing Booth, and Abby Quinn, a singer songwriter and actress who has appeared in shows like Better Call Saul and Black Mirror.
Set in 1925 New Jersey and based on true events, sisters Bessie and Jo work at the American Radium Factory. The teenagers have ambitious dreams for their lives, until their world is turned upside down when Jo loses a tooth and they realize radium may be toxic.
You can check out the trailer by going to radiumgirlsmovie.com. It costs $12 to “unlock” the virtual screening room to watch the complete film.
WWII Exhibit Extended Through Veterans Day
One way you can pay your respects to Veterans this year is by making a plan to visit the Chapman Museum. They’ve extended their WWII Home Front Poster Exhibit through November 11. The exhibit features 5o home front posters produced by the US government to build public support for the war effort.
Veterans can come for free, and there’s a suggested donation of $5 for others. The Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10am to 12pm, and 1pm to 4pm. Please call during business hours to reserve a time (518.793.2826).
Tri-County United Way Introduces Volunteer Portal
Volunteers make a difference, today more than ever, and the Tri-County United Way understands this. That’s why the Queensbury-based nonprofit has partnered with over 30 organizations in the region to publish their volunteer opportunities on one site.
“We’re thrilled to offer this new innovative platform to our community,” Peter Aust, Interim Executive Director of Tri-County United Way, said in a statement. “Providing opportunities to both volunteers and the organizations that embrace them is now easy and can positively impact many lives.”
