  Movie Nights

Tuesday movie - 6:15 p.m. in the Lounge

DINNER AND A MOVIE DATE!   If the idea of DINNER AND A MOVIE appeals to you, you can participate in a well-planned/well-timed dinner in our Dining Room and then take a short walk just across the lobby to the Lounge and view a movie.  Our CW Movie Committee works diligently to present GOOD MOVIES for your pleasure - and, they are FREE for you to enjoy right here!  Of those who responded to our Movie Survey last year, most indicated that they would like to view recent releases or “good” movies.  This we try to do.  However, they are not always available for 1-3 years as well as being relatively expensive.  If our budget allows we often buy them or get the next best thing. Our goal is to present a variety of genres each month as well as to intersperse Movie Night presentations of “oldies” with newer films.  

MEMO!  We often draw films from our extensive collection of DVDs, many of which are donated for the pleasure of our Canterbury Residents.  Last year, the Committee spent close to $1,000 on new films and replacements of those found missing from our DVD Library.  This is a reminder that DVDs may ONLY be checked out in the Canterbury Room Sign-Out sheet by CW residents.  Please also remember to cross out your selection on the sign-out sheet when you return DVDs.  Many thanks for your participation and cooperation!  Incidentally, our 28 page listing of all our DVDs is currently being updated and will be available in the Canterbury Room as well as on the Resident Website.

Upcoming Movies & Documentaries

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25th, Lounge - 6:15 p.m.: Mrs. Doubtfire  

This is a 1993 American comedy drama starring Robin Williams as a recently divorced actor who ingeniously and successfully adopts the female dress and general persona of an imaginary daytime housekeeper named Mrs. Doubtfire, so as to be hired unbeknownst by his divorced wife and able to interact, also incognito, with his own children.  The complicated, reasonably believable and, as one reviewer puts it, “fall-down funny” plot showcases William’s mastery of his/her? new role and concludes with a mutually satisfying familial outcome for wife, ex-husband, and children.   [125 min., with subtitles]        

Please note - the Video Library information and the section about borrowing Great Courses videos from other residents have been noved to the Need to Know page.
