Feb. 16, 18 — WOODSTOCK — February vacation is traditionally a time for kids to enjoy winter: sledding, skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and the like. The daylight stretches out so full days on snow are possible. It is not outside the realm of possibility that a foot of snow could arrive before vacation week, Feb. 15-20. If it does not, or even if it does, Pentangle Arts Council has a feast of films for all ages showing free at the Woodstock Town Hall Theater.
February Flicks on the Free Stage include:
“Shrek,” Feb. 16 at 4 p.m. “Shrek” is a reclusive but kindhearted ogre, who becomes a respected hero with an ever growing collection of friends and family in a fairy tale world in spite of himself.
“The Princess Bride,” Feb. 16 at 7:30 p.m. “The Princess Bride,” released in 1987 was directed and co-produced by Rob Reiner, and stared Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, and Christopher Guest. The film was adapted by William Goldman from his 1973 novel of the same name. The story is about Westley, a farm hand who accompanied by befriended companions along the way, must rescue his true love Princess Buttercup from the odious Prince Humperdinck.
“The Big Lebowski,” Thursday, Feb. 18 at 7:30 p.m. This 1998 film directed Joel Coen and Ethan Coen stars Jeff Bridges as Jeff Lebowski. Lebowski shares the same name as a millionaire in a heap of trouble which sends him into the depths of the L.A. underworld.
Concession will be open during the films. Woodstock Town Hall is located at 31 the Green, Woodstock. For more information visit www.pentanglearts.org.
