Movie Tonight: 500 Days Of Summer

In Chester CT Events, Film & Movies on February 25, 2010 at 5:01 pm

Tonight February 25, 7pm

(500) DAYS OF SUMMER (2009), 95 min., PG-13

marc webb, director

Narrator in the film:

“this is the story of boy meets girl. The boy, Tom Hansen of Margate, NJ, grew up believing that he’d never truly be happy until the day he met the one. This belief stemmed from early exposure to sad British pop music and a total mis-reading of the movie ‘The Graduate’. The girl, Summer Finn of Shinnecock, MI, did not share this belief. Since the disintegration of her parent’s marriage she’d only loved two things. The first was her long dark hair. The second was how easily she could cut it off and not feel a thing. Tom meets Summer on January 8th. He knows almost immediately she is who he has been searching for. This is the story of boy meets girl, but you should know upfront, this is not a love story.”

In conjunction with the eagle festival, eo is proud to present the film A Celebration of Birds. Travel from Florida to Maine birding with Old Lyme’s Roger Tory Peterson, as he shares experiences from a career that spanned 70 years. Famous for writing and illustrating the Peterson’s Field Guide to Birds, Peterson tells of the changes he’s seen and his concerns for the future. Shot two years before Peterson’s death, it is a beautiful documentary about a remarkable man who forever changed the world’s appreciation of birds.

As an added bonus we will have Chester’s own Matthew Male, brother of the film maker on location to add some interesting stories about the making of the film. Time allowing we may also show: The Return of the Osprey, which features footage shot in Old Lyme and Shelter Island, or one of the Watching Series (Watching… Waders, Sparrows, Warblers, Western Warblers.)

DVD’s will be available for purchase following the film.
