The Moviehouse Comes Back to Life ­— With an Elevator and an Ice Machine

The region enjoyed a collective sigh of delight and relief over Memorial Day weekend as the new owners of The Moviehouse in Millerton, N.Y., enjoyed a successful soft opening (showing the films “A Quiet Place 2” and “Dream Horse”).

A Trail of Memories, from General Patton to His Own Family History

An unpaid bill for snow plowing at his home in Sharon, Conn., led journalist Jurgen Kalwa on a trail that ultimately led to World War II General George S. Patton.

Kalwa told his story to an online group at an event sponsored by the Hotchkiss Library of Sharon on Sunday, May 2.

Shows Based on Notable Books

Larry McMurtry: Movies adapted from his books won 13 Oscars. You could try “Terms of Endearment” or “The Last Picture Show,” but his best book is the great Western novel “Lonesome Dove.” It was made into a TV miniseries in 1989 that is faithful to the book and was certainly the most unromantic western ever made. 

If you’re a woman of a certain age, you either owned Liv Tyler’s outfit in “Empire Records” or wished you owned it. See the film and hear from the costume designer in a May 1 Boondocks Film Society screening.

I can’t tell from the IMDb how old costume designer Susan Lyall is but I will say that she’s more or less captured my life on film, so she must be about my age.
