The Southbury Film Commission has announced that “Sunday Movie Night in Southbury” is back by popular demand.
The film series, created in collaboration with the CT Film Festival and the Heritage Hotel, will continue throughout 2013, according to the commission. Due to numerous suggestions to show the films earlier, the Winter Series will start at 5 p.m.
“This will allow everyone to work up an appetite and then visit one of our many fine restaurants in Southbury after the show and not have to rush through a meal,” said Anne Armeno, Chair of the SFC.
The 2013 Winter Series will present a wide variety of feature films, documentaries and shorts. Some of the screenings will be enriched by Q&A sessions with filmmakers and other special guests. Details and also the summaries and trailers of the upcoming movies can be found on the SFC website.
The schedule for the 2013 Winter Series is as follows:
- January 13th “Don McLean American Troubadour”

- February 10th “The Baker”
- February 24th “Pitching Man”
- March 10th “Accidental Icon the real Gidget Story”

All films will be shown at the Heritage Hotel, 522 Heritage Road in Southbury at 5 p.m.
The series will start with a documentary about one of America’s greatest singer-songwriters Don McLean. The film summarizes his forty-year plus career and features live performances of his best-known hits including American Pie, Vincent, Crying and I Love You So. Don McLean: American Troubadour is produced and directed by four-time Emmy award winning Jim Brown whose work includes: Pete Seeger: The Power of Song, The Weavers: Wasn’t That A Time, and A Vision Shared: Tribute to Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly.
