When Horror & Music & Film Come Together as One
When you think of vintage horror films, Friday the 13th or Child’s Play might come to mind. But the Summerland Music Society and the Park Theater are going back even further than the 80s to bring us a unique night of terror (and good food).
The theater will host the music society’s “Silent Halloween” event, with a screening of the 1925 silent film The Phantom of the Opera on October 30. Pianist Cary Brown will provide a live improvised soundtrack. Reservations are required, a $10 donation is suggested, and the full dinner menu from Doc’s Restaurant will be available.
Year-Long Photo Project on Washington Farms Comes to Fruition
Local photojournalist Eric Jenks is set to display his latest exhibit, “A Changing Landscape: The Farms of Washington County” at the Historic Salem Courthouse on November 11. This is a year-long endeavor following four farms of Washington County.
“For my project, I tried to find farms that produced different products, and were also at different stages of generational transition at the farm. I wanted to show that while the face of agriculture in the county may be changing, the community that is integrated into its fabric continues to find a way to do what they love, and pass that passion on to another generation,” Jenks said in a statement.
The four farms documented in the series are Battenkill Valley Creamery in Salem (pictured above), Fuller Acres Farm in Fort Ann, Fresh Take Farm in Granville, and Gardenworks in Salem.
Zonta Club of Glens Falls Looking for Participants in 16 Days of Activism
The Zonta Club of Glens Falls is participating in 16 Days of Activism, and they’d like other area organizations to join in. This is an international campaign that challenges violence against women and girls. The campaign runs from November 25 to December 10, and the nonprofit is looking for others to get in on this effort to address domestic violence in the community.
They have posters, foam boards, and other items with messages to stop domestic violence and how to seek help, that they can deliver to local businesses who would like to support this cause. If you’re interested, contact the committee at email@example.com.
