CAPE ANN VERNAL POND TEAM UPDATE

Rick Roth writes:

“Nice time at the Farmer’s Market on Thursday.  Great weather, great crowd.  Thanks to volunteers Colleen Anderson and John Gallagher.  And thanks to the crew from Art Haven, Amelia, Avery and Natalie, for leading the Kid’s activity.

 

Saturday was the Petco Reptile Rally.  Nathan Dubrow was there with his green tree python.  I had a few snakes there and it was a fun event. Thanks to the Petco people who helped us out: Amanda, Acacia, Zac and Caroline.

 

Saturday  July 26, 2014  Time 10am

Snakes of New England and the World- 1 hour live animal presentation.

Sawyer Free Library, 2 Dale Ave., Gloucester MA

 

Saturday  August 2,  9am-5pm

Book Fair at the Manchester Public Library

We’ll be there all day with a bunch of snakes and I believe that someone is going to lead a Kid’s activity.

 

Friday and Saturday  August 8-9  9am-5pm

Gloucester Sidwalk Bazaar, Main Street in front of the Sargent House, near Bananas, where we’ve been for several years.

Bunch of snakes.

 

So… we really need lots of volunteers for the next three weeks.  Remember, even if you can do an hour or two, it will give someone a lunch break or something.  These events are great exposure for us, so please get in touch and let me know that you want to help out.  Those of you that have been around for a while know that I can really pester people about volunteering to the point where they wish they were never born.  Don’t let this happen to you.  Volunteer.

 

Meanwhile… this really cool vernal pond thing is about to take place, likely in the next week or two.  The emergence of newly metamorphosed wood frogs.  They look just like the adults except tiny.  Like 1/2 inch.  We’ll be doing a daytime field trip to see these guys soon.  Nick Taormina is scouting the pond to see just when they start hopping.  Keep watching your CAVPT emails for final details on this exciting outing.  And don’t forget to volunteer.

 

Thanks,  Rick

“Divorce Corp.” (Sun. Mar. 9 @ 4:00pm) At Cape Ann Community Cinema Followed By Discussion With David Calvo

SPECIAL SCREENING – “Divorce Corp.” (Sun. Mar. 9 @ 4:00pm)

By Robert Newton on January 15, 2014

For roughly 50% of American families divorce is an unpleasant fact of life. Dealing with divorce and its effects destroys lives and bankrupts individuals every day. Family law, which barely existed for most of our country’s history, has morphed into a gigantic industry over the past several decades. Learn first-hand about the excesses and injustices rampant in the U.S. family court system. Do not miss the riveting film that offers a spotless condemnation of family courts across America. In interviews with top insiders and an array of litigants, a place aptly termed “the last fiefdom of lawlessness and tyranny,” is uncovered.

DATE:
SUNDAY, MARCH 9TH @ 4:00PM

TICKETS:
$10.00 ADULTS / $8.50 STUDENTS & SENIORS / $7.00 CINEMA MEMBERS

The Beatles at Cape Ann Community Cinema This SAT 1/25

You can always count on Rob Newton to come up with something fun, which is exactly what we need in the dead of winter.  Here’s what he’s got cooked up for this weekend.

CAPE ANN COMMUNITY CINEMA CELEBRATES
THE BEATLES AT 50

Beatles tribute band, film, plus new short this Saturday

Studio-Two

Studio Two

Acclaimed local Beatles tribute Studio Two will kick off the night taking moviegoers and fans back to the early 1960s when The Beatles were taking the world by storm.

In the new documentary short “The Beatles Boston,” filmmaker and lifelong Beatles fan Eric Green examines The Beatles’ history with the city of Boston. Featured interviews include Cha-Chi Loprete (the host of WZLX’s “Breakfast With The Beatles” program) and Tim Riley (NPR music critic and John Lennon biographer). The film illustrates why Boston has always loved The Beatles and continues to today.

The feature-length “The Beatles: First U.S. Visit” documents the Fab Four during their two week trip to New York, Washington, D.C., and Miami Beach. Footage includes an intimate look at the Beatles off-guard, off- and on-stage, their historic appearance on the Ed Sullivan show, and the rise of Beatlemania. 

Ticket prices are $14.00 for adults, $12.00 for Cinema members. Advance tickets are suggested, and may be purchased at www.CapeAnnCinema.com.

ABOUT STUDIO TWO
Studio Two is a Beatles tribute band that pays tribute to the early Beatles years, choosing songs from the pre-Sgt. Pepper era. These four lads met in a “cellar full of noise” in a town west of Liverpool––way west––in Milford, New Hampshire, and very faithfully recreates the Fab Four’s music, instruments, and onstage banter. More info at www.StudioTwoTribute.com.

ABOUT THE CACC
In its sixth year, the Cape Ann Community Cinema (www.CapeAnnCinema.com) is an intimate, 110-seat living-room-style digital theater, with tables for dining, comfortable chairs, and couches. It features an extensive DVD lending library for Cinema Members, and offers a variety of filmmaking courses for students ages 8 to 88. The Cape Ann Community Cinema is located at 21 Main Street, 2nd Floor, Gloucester, Massachusetts.

80s U.K. New Wave Pioneer Thomas Dolby at CACC on FRIDAY!

Every once in a while you get a rare opportunity to experience an intimate evening with a unique talent that you may not be able to see again within driving distance.  That’s what you’ve got this Friday at Gloucester’s wonderfully intimate Cape Ann Community Cinema when 80s electronic music pioneer Thomas Dolby makes a live appearance at the Cape Ann Film Festival.  Get Tickets here.  Check out this tremendously creative trailer:

Big live music weekend coming up ~ so much to do ~ how do you choose?

Well, it’s not easy.  But we’re here to help.  Start with the complete live music lineup here (updated as we learn of new shows and schedule changes).  Below are some highlights:

TONIGHT (Friday)

Remember Joan Osborne?  “What if God were one of us?”  Seems appropriate since Peter Higgs won the Nobel Prize in physics this week for predicting the God Particle that was discovered at CERN earlier this year.  As of this post there are a few seats left — but not many, so if you want to go, CLICK HERE and get your seats now.

TOMORROW (Saturday)

James Keelaghan

Depending on the weather, this might be your last chance to catch a music sail on the Thomas E. Lannon this year.  Michael O’Leary performs with his band.

We would be remiss if we didn’t remind you that the man who holds the well-deserved title of Canada’s finest singer-songwriter, James Keelaghan is at Old Sloop with Tom Smith opening.

Once again, we recommend that you CLICK HERE to get your tickets today if you want to be assured of a seat.

SUNDAY

Marina Evans UNBOUND CD Release concert at Cape Ann Community Cinema looks like it will be an excellent evening.

There are over 20 live shows this weekend, so plenty to choose from if none of these strike your fancy.  See the full lineup here.

Panda Cams are dark, NOAA’s site is down, but Cape Ann TV is up, Gloucester Sings & Lights are on at Larcom Theatre

I sympathize.  Life is tough when you can’t get your panda fix from the National Zoo because the Panda Cams are dark.  Or perhaps you’re wondering what to do after seeing that scary message “NOAA.gov and most associated web sites are unavailable” at  www.noaa.gov.

But don’t be depressed.  When the Allen Estes Band takes the stage on Saturday, the lights will be on at the Larcom Theatre in Beverly (which opened in 1912 — same year as Fenway Park — under the slogan “Lit Completely by Electricity” and it still is!)

Cape Ann TV is still on.  And tonight they premiere a new Local Music Seen show featuring Marina Evans as Allen Estes’ guest on Channel 12 at 6:30pm.

Marina sings new songs off her brand-new CD, Unbound, which she’ll release next Sunday, Oct 13 at concert at Cape Ann Community Cinema.  This will be an excellent night of music, so mark your calendars.

Don’t worry, Marina will be there even if the Government is still shut down.

And, of course, there’s live music all week here in Gloucester.  See the live music lineup here.

Just in case any of you in Washington who voted to shut down the government are reading this post about all that’s going on here despite your antics, we’ve got five words for you: THE SHOW MUST GO ON!

Mark your calendars ~ Marina Evans “Unbound” CD Release Concert Sunday, October 13, 2013

Blackfish Benefit for Ocean Alliance

blackfish
 
“Blackfish” Screening Benefit for Ocean Alliance
 
On Sunday September 29th at 6:30 Cape Ann Community Cinema will be hosting a one-night-only screening of the film “Blackfish” to benefit Ocean Alliance. We’ve been hearing the buzz about this film for months and are very excited to have it in Gloucester. More a psychological thriller than a documentary, it tells the story of the killer whale Tilikum whose actions in captivity resulted in the deaths of several people and it raises the question of whether these ocean-roaming hunters should be held in tanks for our entertainment. Ocean Alliance CEO Iain Kerr will be speaking briefly before the film and answering questions afterwards. Tickets can be purchased here – http://capeanncinema.wordpress.com/advance-tickets/
 
See you there!

Rob Newton Interview: Lawrence Blume, Director, “Tiger Eyes”

Award winning and best selling author Judy Blume is appearing tonight at Cape Ann Community Cinema. See for more information see: Judy Blume at Cape Ann Community Cinema Monday Night!!!

Since her first novel was published in 1969, Judy Blume has written nearly thirty more books, appealing to children (“Freckle Juice”), teens (“Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret.”), and adults (“Summer Sisters”) and varying widely in the topics she so smartly covered with them. However, none has made the trip to the big screen, until now. Blume’s 1981 novel “Tiger Eyes,” about a teenage girl named Davey who is transplanted into a New Mexico mountain town after the sudden loss of her father, is the first, and is now in theaters. But why such a long wait for a Judy Blume movie, and why this one, and why now? Lawrence Blume, Judy’s son––and the director of the film––had some answers to these and other questions that her legions of fans want to know.

“Many producers have pondered adapting ‘Tiger Eyes’ over the years,” the junior Blume told North Shore Movies. “There were some false starts, and some things that didn’t work out.”

If things had worked out, Blume may not have been able to realize his dual dreams of adapting the book himself (he read all of them either in process or as they were released) and working with his mother on producing that adaptation.

“Making a film out of the book is something I’ve wanted to do since I read it in high school,” Blume says of the project. “The timing is perfect, and the deal was hard to resist. Yes, we had to make-do with a tiny budget [from a European producer] and just 23 days in which to shoot, but we had full creative control.”

For some, working on such an important project with one’s mother would be a situation far from ideal, but for Blume, it was just the opposite.

“The collaboration was joyful,” he says. “She is an unbelievably fertile artist, and it was amazing to have her to collaborate with. She was with me for nearly every shot, next to me in the director’s chair. It was incredible to be able to turn to her after a shot and say ‘This is the direction I’m going with Willa [Holland, who plays Davey], to have her there, saying ‘yes,’ ‘no,’ or ‘you are going off the rails.’ Directing is lonely, so to have someone who knows the story as intimately or more so was great.”
