Foreign Film Fridays


2nd Fridays @ 7 p.m.

October 13th – A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night  (Iran, 2014)                                          100 min

Strange things are afoot in Bad City. The Iranian ghost town, home to prostitutes, junkies, pimps, and other sordid souls, is a place that reeks of death and hopelessness, where a lonely vampire is stalking the town’s most unsavory inhabitants. But when boy meets girl, an unusual love story begins to blossom...blood red. A joyful mash-up of genre with prolific influences spanning spaghetti westerns, graphic novels, horror films, and the Iranian New Wave.

Offered parole from Sing Sing in exchange for information about one of his old partners in crime, jewel thief Nick Bianco (Victor Mature) reluctantly cooperates with district attorney Louis D'Angelo (Brian Donlevy) to take down violent murderer Tommy Udo (Richard Widmark). But when Udo goes free despite the district attorney's best efforts, Bianco and his wife, Nettie (Coleen Gray), are in the killer's sights, and he'll stop at nothing to settle the score.

Indulge your darker side!  Revisit the mean streets of the ‘40s & ‘50s with these classics!

Folk Tunes from Finland


VELLAMO: Finnish Folk Duo

Pia Leinonen and Joni Tiala's performing and songwriting are characterized by haunting melodies, Pia's ethereal lead vocals and Joni's virtuosic guitar stylings. According to David Kidman of FATEA Magazine, “retro feel – kinda Trader Horne/first-album Fairport, maybe more than a hint of the Fariñas, with a touch of early-electric-Dylan/McGuinn jangle.” 

Wednesday October 18th, 7:00pm

Performance is FREE and open to all members of the public
