A Ghost (and Pie) Story

The Little Cookout on July 30

While watching a movie and utilizing The Little's air-conditioning are great summer activities, from time to time we like to embrace other warm weather traditions.

That's why we're happy to tell you about
The Little's 2nd 'Member' Cookout!
We'll be grilling and selling hot dogs, hamburgers, along with vegetarian options from 2 p/m. to 4 p.m. (or the grilled goods are gone) on Sunday, July 30. This will be a rain or shine event, and will take place on our patio directly outside the theater 2-5 entrance.

If you've stopped by our Winthrop Street entrance, or just look at the picture to the attached, you'll notice a new addition to The Little: A library!

Yes, books have been added to the list of things we offer here (along with movies, live music, art, food, drinks, ballet, opera, and eternal friendship). The "take a book, leave a book" free library features books on the arts. It also features a fun back story.

A Free Movie for Mom on Mother's Day

This is a fact: The moms out there deserve more than flowers. It's just true. You all rock. If you're a mom, your first movie on Mother's Day (May 14) is FREE! This applies to our regular run films (everything except The 100 Years Show). Schedule at thelittle.org. 

Enjoy, and have a fantastic day!

And now, a word from Membership:

The Little has been a proud member of Rochester's diverse film heritage for 87 years and if you're looking for a new Mother's Day tradition, we're here for you!
