Here’s some event information for those who
have tickets for the Eastern Premiere of
Mark Spano's film “Sicily: Land of Love &
Strife" on June 25th.
(If you don't
have tickets to the early showing, a second
showing has been added for 10:00 PM.)
FOR THE FIRST SHOWING ONLY:
At 6 PM on June 25th, under the marquee at the
North Park Theatre, folklorists 'Paolo
and Felice', in traditional costume, will
sing and play the mandolin. An authentically
painted Sicilian 'carretta' (donkey cart)
will be on display.
Inside the theatre, starting at 7 PM, a
half-hour overture of Italian songs will be sung
by Jay Louis Dref, accompanied by pianist Ken
Kaufman, after which the featured film will
start. Seating for the showing is general.
The North Park Theatre is in an urban setting,
and to minimize parking concerns, attendees are
encouraged to car-pool or use ride-sharing
services. For those who drive, in addition to
street parking, Father Joe Wolfe of St. Margaret
Roman Catholic Church has graciously made the
church parking lot available. The church is at
1395 Hertel Avenue, across the street from the
theatre which is at 1428 Hertel. See the map,
DVDs of the movie will be available for
purchase in the lobby.
