|09/10/2014||READ A MOVIE, |
The Rehoboth Beach Film Society and the Rehoboth Beach Public Library invite film and/or literary enthusiasts to a screening of “The Woman in Green on Wednesday, September 10 beginning at 4:00 pm in the upstairs community room at the Rehoboth Beach Public Library. This film is an adaptation of Sir Arthur Doyle’s “The Adventure of the Empty House.” The screening is part of the monthly “Read a Movie” series in which members read a little-known short story in advance of the screening, then gather to share their thoughts about how well—or not so well—the story was expanded to the big screen.
“The Woman in Green” is the 11th Sherlock Holmes film that Basil Rathbone (Holmes) and Nigel Bruce (Dr. Watson) made together. In this film we find Holmes and Watson trying to solve the case of the “Finger Murders.” When four women are found slain with their forefingers severed, Scotland Yard calls on the always clever Holmes for help. The police are prepared to write off the killings as the work of a madman, but Holmes believes the killings to be part of a very sane yet twisted plot. The trail leads the detective to a beautiful hypnotist, in league with an old nemesis. The movie comes to a nerve-racking conclusion as a hypnotized Holmes roams along the edge of a penthouse! [US, 1945, Runtime: 68 min, Rated: G]
The popular “Read a Movie” series take place on the second Wednesday of each month (Sept – May). “Read a Movie” is free and open to the public. To sign up, and receive the stories in advance, email Denise Hoban at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Rehoboth Beach Film Society, Lewes Public Library and Movies at Midway launch the 2014-15 Around the World series with the film “In The Name Of”. This Polish drama will be presented on Wednesday, September 3, at 6:30 pm in the upstairs screening room at Movies at Midway. The Around the World film series presents critically acclaimed, international independent films. The generous sponsorship of Movies at Midway allows the screenings to be free and open to the public.
Adam is a Catholic priest who discovered his calling as a servant of God at the relatively late age of 21. He now lives in a village in rural Poland where he works with troubled teens. He declines the advances of a young woman, saying he is already spoken for; however, celibacy is not the only reason for his rejection. Adam knows that he desires men and that his embrace of the priesthood has been a flight from his own sexuality. When he meets Lukasz, the strange and aloof son of a simple rural family, Adam's self-imposed abstinence becomes a heavy burden.
“Magnetic! It’s a film to be admired,” says Jonathan Romney of “Screen Daily.” Kevin Langson of the “The Edge San Francisco,” states “This is emphatically not a typical melodrama…and thank God for that!” [2013, Poland, Runtime: 102 min, Not Rated, Polish with English subtitles]
