Los Alamos And White Rock Senior Centers Feature ‘Dead Right’

on May 9, 2017 - 1:48pm

COMMUNITY News:

Be sure to mark those calendars for 12:30 p.m. May 17 at the Los Alamos Senior Center and May 19 at the White Rock Senior Center for a free, very funny short play reading, Dead Right, by Elaine Jarvik.

The play stars Sally Cassil and Tom Farish and is directed by Pat Beck. This engaging play centers on how a friend’s tedious, grammatically incorrect obituary plunges Penny and Bill, age 60s, into a prickly discussion at the breakfast table. How could Bill read the paper when they have their own obituaries to plan?

It’s a touching comedy about how we hope to be remembered.

Cinema Cindy: The Zookeeper’s Wife

on May 3, 2017 - 8:53am

Los Alamos
 
“The Zookeeper’s Wife” is a long-awaited film based on the popular 2007 novel by Diane Ackerman.
 
The story is based on actual events during the Nazi occupation of Warsaw, Poland. Not only is the story compelling, it is an important one to learn.
 
Antonina and Jan Zabinski were the keepers of the Warsaw Zoo from 1928 to 1951, he the PhD Zoologist and she the heart of the place. There are heart-warming scenes early in the movie featuring the lovely Antonina (Jessica Chastain), her magic touch with the animals and their apparent devotion to her.
