Movies Returning to the Davis Theatre in August

The line-up is Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Friday, Aug. 28, 8 p.m.; National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Thursday, Nov. 19, 8 p.m.; The Big Lebowski, Friday, Jan. 29, 8 p.m.; Dirty Dancing, Friday, April 8, 8 p.m. The films were chosen by members of Art on Tap, the arts council’s membership group for young adults. Art on Tap will sponsor an “Ugly Christmas Sweater” contest in conjunction with National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
Photographs by Sonia Handelman Meyer on Display at The Galleries August 17-October 10
The Galleries’ first-ever solo exhibition, which will feature photographs by Sonia Handelman Meyer, will be on display Aug. 17-Oct. 10. Meyer, who is 95, plans to attend special events, including Art Walk and Collectors Circle, during the exhibition. As a member of the New York Photo League, Meyer brought awareness to the plight of immigrants, minorities and the poor as she photographed the city in the 1940s. Her amazing eye and unimposing persona allowed her to take pictures that pull the viewer in and give us a better understanding of the social, political, and personal struggles of the period.
