Hello, Bookstore at The Old Dutch Church

We are thrilled to be sponsoring this special event with Upstate Films and our sister stores Rough Draft Bar + Books (Kingston) and Magpie Bookshop (Catskill)

Musical guest: Clare & The Reasons

Post-film Q&A with director A.B. Zax

Hudson Valley Picture Show

In Lenox, Massachusetts, a local treasure, The Bookstore, is in danger, due to the pandemic and changing tastes. The town rallies to help the store and its beloved owner, Matt Tannenbaum, whose passion for stories runs deep. Named one of Variety’s “10 Best Films of 2022 (so far)“. This special screening will include a discussion of independent booksellers. (U.S., 2022, 86m)

“Compelling and heartwarming … worthy of Hollywood magic created by Frank Capra and Jimmy Stewart.” –Boston Globe

Live music + a short reading by novelist Jenny Offill, author of Weather and Dept. of Speculation at 6:45p/Film at 7:30p followed by a discussion

Headed by Kingston-based husband-and-wife duo, Olivier and Clare Manchon, The Reasons are an enduring live outfit who pivoted to film scoring a decade ago. Most recently they scored the just premiered doc “Turn Every Page” about Robert Caro and Robert Gottlieb, and contributed several pieces to Nick Cage’s “The Unbearable Weight of a Massive Talent”.  Fixated on sound quality, color and orchestrations, Olivier and Clare never cut corners and will bring the live strings to Old Dutch Church. “Feather-light vocals, expertly arranged instrumentation and witty, smart lyrics.” – Paste magazine
