This promises to be one of the truly memorable events of Hudson's recent history. On Friday, October 25, Friends of Fairview Cinema 3 and Basilica Hudson are collaborating to present Odds Against Tomorrow, the classic American film noir set here in Hudson.
The movie is a cult favorite for many Hudsonians, primarily because it provides such wonderful documentation of the city half a century ago. See Warren Street when it was an archetypal pre-mall American main street. See Promenade Hill before Urban Renewal leveled all the 19th-century buildings that surrounded it. See the waterfront when it was a gritty place of industry and oil tanks.
The event is a rare opportunity to view this classic movie on a big screen, in the company of other Hudsonians, in a former industrial building on the waterfront, a stone's throw from the setting of the film's spectacular climax.
The special evening begins at 7 p.m., with dinner served prior to the movie. A donation of $50 is being requested to benefit Fairview Cinema 3--to help Bruce Mitchinson equip another of his theaters with a digital projector and keep our only hometown (albeit over the border in Greenport) first run movie house open. Reservations are required, so click on RSVP and send an email to let the people organizing this event know you plan to attend.
