Gothic Ghost Tales by Candlelight

Ghost Stories

Thursday October 3, 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room

Women writers of the 20th century wrote some of the most imaginative and original ghost stories. They helped to create the modern ghost: a mixture of old fashioned Victorian gothic and science fiction.

The public is invited to listen as Rita Parisi from Waterfall Productions presents three ghost stories, written by women, that probe the possibilities of other dimensions in time and human consciousness.

Advance registration is appreciated. You may register online or by phone at (203)265-6754.

Friday Night Flicks Presents: Iron Man 3

Iron Man 3

Friday September 27, 6:00 p.m. in the Community Room

Brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man is pitted against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to a question that has secretly haunted him: Does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man? Rated PG-13.
