We have frequent special events like “Meet the Filmmaker” nights and collaborations with local community organizations. Live, local musical acts play on stage for half-an-hour before each film. Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for kids under 12.

Celebrate our farms! — THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM


A hit at major film festivals from Telluride to Toronto, the film documents John and Molly Chester’s 8-year quest to transform 200 barren acres, one problem-solving puzzle at a time, into a diverse farm in harmony with nature.
Each night you can join a panel of farm educators from our region (CISA, Just Roots) in a post-film Q & A.
Bring your ideas for supporting our local farms!

Sing Along with Tevye! — FIDDLER ON THE ROOF


We are repeating one of our most popular collaborations with the Pioneer Valley Jewish Film Festival, “Fiddler on the Roof.” Why show it again? It’s a tradition!
This is a companion to PVJFF’s showing of a great documentary, FIDDLER: A MIRACLE OF MIRACLES on April 2 (Yiddish Book Center, 7 pm, tickets at pvjff.org) and is sure to be a great night.
It remains both stirring and relevant 45 years after its Broadway premiere.
