THE SINGING REVOLUTION
2006 (87 minutes); Narrated by Linda Hunt
An inspiring and gripping film:
The story of how feelings became songs, songs became a national voice, and voice became action. A single nation…a million voices…the fall of an empire.
Imagine the scene in “Casablanca” in which the French patrons in Rick’s Cafe began singing “La Marsellaise”…and you’ve only begun to imagine the force of “The Singing Revolution”.
Truly an uplifting piece of cinema!
Please join us for a fun evening of cinema…schmoozing…discussing and generally having a good time! State of the Art projection, large screen & great sound!
Snacks and cold drinks included in the $10 price of admission.
Always a classic cartoon and newsreel prior to the feature!
