What does The Little mean to you?
It's a question I recently posed to those who attended our Member Movie Matinee. (An important side note: Thanks to all those who came out March 20 - it was a fun time!) The answers I received were creative, and genuinely touching. It really makes me proud to be a part of this Rochester landmark.
I've posted many replies to Instagram (@thelittletheatre), so follow us there to see some of the aforementioned cleverness on display. I also posted my own response to this newsletter (as you can tell from my response -- "Devouring ALL the popcorn" -- I often have popcorn for dinner, and I'm 100-percent okay with this). If you see me around the theater, feel more than free to say hi! I love chatting with movie fans, music fans, and definitely Little fans.
And if you want to include your thoughts on what The Little means to you, send me an email at [email protected].
A new month means a new slate of MONDO Movies! April's selection is dedicated to David Bowie. Things kick-off April 1 with Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence. From there, we'll have a new Bowie movie every Friday at 9 (Basquiat, Labyrinth, The Hunger, and Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars). Important note: All these MONDO Movies will begin at 9 p.m. (the previous start time was an hour later).
Chomsky at The Little
Our April 22 event with Noam Chomsky and his film Requiem for the American Dream sold out extremely quickly (so much so that I didn't even get a chance to mention it in this letter). While this will be the only event at The Little with Chomsky, we will have an encore screening of Requiem at noon on Saturday, April 23. Additionally, Chomsky will be giving a public talk on linguistics at 5 p.m. Thursday, April 21. It will be located in the Interfaith Chapel Sanctuary on the University of Rochester campus.
