Movie Screening – Suffragette

Movie Screening – Suffragette

In early 20th-century Britain, the growing suffragette movement forever changes the life of working wife and mother Maud Watts (Carey Mulligan). Galvanized by political activist Emmeline Pankhurst (Meryl Streep), Watts joins a diverse group of women who fight for equality and the right to vote. Faced with increasing police action, Maud and her dedicated suffragettes must play a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse, risking their jobs, homes,  family and lives for a just cause.
STARRING: CAREY MULLIGAN, MERYL STREEP, HELENA BONHAM CARTER

Author Talk – I Did Inhale

Though Amagansett was home, Wendy Raebeck always felt distant lands pulling her away. Now frequent visits back to family are highlights of every season, and she stays closely connected to this wonderful place—most especially to Charlie, her iconic 94-year-old father.  With pen as traveling companion, Wendy has recorded numerous misadventures, tribulations, romances, and musings. Along the wayward path, she’s taken a decent bite out of life, and her books let the reader ride shotgun.  With two books published (“Some Swamis are Fat” and “I Did Inhale—Memoir of a Hippie Chick”), she has several more in the works for 2016-17, all capsulizing highlights from various incarnations. Her most recent book, “I Did Inhale,” features East Hampton as backdrop for some chapters. Come enjoy excerpts from this and her next book, “Expedition Costa Rica,”

Movie Screening – Creed

Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) never knew his famous father, boxing champion Apollo Creed, who died before Adonis was born. However, boxing is in his blood, so he seeks out Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) and asks the retired champ to be his trainer. Rocky sees much of Apollo in Adonis, and agrees to mentor him, even as he battles an opponent deadlier than any in the ring. With Rocky’s help, Adonis soon gets a title shot, but whether he has the true heart of a fighter remains to be seen. Nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for Sylvester Stallone.
