Editor's Note: The following is a press release from the Town of Southbury.
The SFC had another great showing on Sunday, November 25th. The film shown was a 2012 Academy Award Nominee: “Chico & Rita”. This was a wonderful animated film that told the story of a love story of two musicians. The world wind romance took the audience from Cuba to the US and back.
The SFC is also very excited to announce that these movie series will carry through into 2013. The Heritage Hotel has graciously offered movie goers another full year of entertainment. The official announcement of dates will be out shortly.
The SFC asked guests to fill out a comment card at the conclusion of this film. We appreciate them all. The comments included:
- “Loved the movie. Love the idea of small local theater. Keep doing it!”
- “Enjoyed both movies. Nice choices.”
- “Loved the animation. Story was good. The dialogue reminded me of something from a bad soap opera.”
- “(The Series) Would like it to continue. Needs more publicity. Easier to find info on Hotel website. A link perhaps?”
- “Good picture. Enjoyed it very much. Thanks Tom, Ted”
- “Just would prefer Saturday or Friday instead of Sunday. I liked the film! (Chico & Rita)”
- “Really enjoyed the movie, especially the ending. Thanks”
- “Need a real theater! Animation terrific – sense of chaos in Cuba – difficulty of residents. Music excellent. – good story!”
- “Both films were excellent – what’s not to like! … and the music!”
- “Too long – animation excellent as was the music – liked Bear Stearns one 2 weeks ago”
- “Great film! Loved the music and the inclusion of all the great musicians of the time and the reality of how black artists were treated in this country. Sunday night schedule is good! Still like the talk backs if possible.”
