January 30, 2020 – “Ophelia”
One of the world’s greatest dramas is turned on its head through a bold and new perspective in Ophelia. Set in medieval Denmark and spoken in a modern tongue with a poetic twist, it recalibrates the classic Shakespearean tragedy of “Hamlet” so that its unspoken, complex heroine may share her own story. As a rebellious and motherless child, Ophelia (Daisy Ridley) is taken into Elsinore Castle by Queen Gerturde (Naomi Watts) as one of her most trusted ladies-in-waiting. Soon enough, Ophelia captures the affections of the young Prince Hamlet (George MacKay). (C) (2018) (1h 54m) (PG-13)

“Judy” was cancelled due to a power outage. Will it be rescheduled, and, if so, when?
Also, any chance of another screening of “Downton Abbey” for those of us who were unable to attend the first screening because we were volunteering over at Palm Ridge that night?
