On Wednesday, July 31st The Significant Cinema Film Series, in partnership with Carnegie Hall and The Lewis Theatre, will host a showing of 1985’s ‘The Goonies” on the Ivy Terrace in front of Carnegie Hall. The presentation is sponsored by The City of Lewisburg and is scheduled to start 15 minutes after sunset, around 9:00PM. This adventure comedy is about a gang of kids who stumble across an old map leading to the hidden fortune of a pirate named One-Eyed Willy.
For about two years now SigCine, as they call it, has been presenting FREE films at The Lewis Theatre in downtown Lewisburg usually around the third Thursday of each month. “We’ve had a wonderful response from local business who have generously sponsored the presentations,” says Russell Williams co-founder of the series, “We’ve also had some fun teaming sponsors to appropriate films. As in The Asylum sponsored ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,’ Retro Donuts sponsored ‘American Graffiti,’ and Smooth Ambler Spirits brought us ‘Thunder Road’ and so on.”
For SigCine founder Josh Baldwin it was about getting to see some of his favorite classic movies on a large screen. He says,“We see it as an opportunity to bring the community together for a shared experience. What better to share than a classic movie?”
Wednesday, August 28th is scheduled for a third summer presentation yet to be determined.
