Documentary Screening: I'm Not Racist...Am I?

Bucks Quarterly Meeting will host a free screening and discussion of the documentary: I’m Not Racist…Am I? on Sunday, March 31 at 1 PM.

One of the producers of the film, André Robert Lee, will lead a discussion following the film.

The documentary follows a diverse group of teens through a year-long exploration to get at the heart of racism. Through some tense and painful moments, we see how these difficult conversations affect their relationships with friends and parents and ultimately challenge them to look deep within themselves.

By the end of their time together, we’ll see these remarkable young people develop deeper bonds, a stronger resolve, and a more significant definition of racism than any of us ever imagined.

This film is appropriate for young people in grades 7 and up. Please email sarah.crofts@gmail.com with any questions.

An Afternoon with Lisa Scottoline

An Afternoon with Lisa Scottoline

The Newtown Bookshop will host New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline on Sunday, April 7 at 1 PM at the The Newtown Theatre.

Lisa will discuss her newly published thriller, Someone Knows, and sign books after her talk.

Ticket price is $30 and includes admission for one and one copy of Someone Knows. Only books received/sold at the event will be allowed to be signed.

ABOUT THE BOOK

In the well-heeled community of Brandywine Hunt, five teenagers navigate their personal angst.  Allie’s family is mired in depression and lassitude since her beloved older sister’s death. Sasha is seemingly everything Allie is not—pretty, popular, and at ease with her sexuality—but effectively abandoned by her jet-setting mother.  Julian, the son of a wealthy developer, is privileged and confident but desperate to live up to his father’s legacy. His best friend, David, is a talented writer but is fighting off pressure from his dad to be the next Pete Sampras. And Kyle, who moved to town only two months ago under mysterious circumstances, is trying to hold it all together for himself and his newly-single mom.

The usual teenage dramas and rivalries turn into horror one night when four of them decide to play a trick on the fifth. While drinking and partying in the woods one summer night, they “pretend” to play a game of Russian Roulette with a handgun they have found buried nearby. The outcome is shocking—who put the bullet in the supposedly unloaded gun?—and they allow the world to believe it was a suicide.

When Allie returns twenty years later to attend the funeral of another of the participants in that unwitting crime, she dreads her encounter with the others. Although she has tried to put the events of that night behind her, they have haunted every aspect of her life. While she and the others never suffered any consequences for their actions, sometimes the ways we punish ourselves can prove worse than public censure.  In the present, Allie is ready to come clean and face the music and to not only face, but reveal the truth of what really happened that night. As Allie digs to unearth the secrets of the past, she reaches a shocking conclusion she never saw coming and all the details of what really happened in past leads to a very present danger.

Flashback Friday: The Day the Earth Stood Still

DSC_4248.JPG

On Friday, February 22, 1952, the Newtown Theatre screened The Day the Earth Stood Still.

We know that thanks to the recent discovery of four Newtown Theatre posters from the 1950s.

As a tribute to our historic past, you’re invited to a screening of The Day the Earth Stood Still on Friday, February 22, 2019…exactly 67 years after the Newtown Theatre first screened it!

Thanks to support from Newtown attorney Alice Hart Hughes, admission for the film is 48 cents, roughly what it would have cost in 1952.

Come dressed in your best 1950s get-up, treat yourself to a space-themed cocktail before the film, and join us in celebrating the long history of the Newtown Theatre!

Four theatre posters from the 1950s, including one that lists The Day the Earth Stood Still, will be displayed in the theatre prior to the film.
