There are no actual movie theaters in Hudson, but that doesn't mean there are not places to watch movies. Hudson Hall is soon to launch a series called Movies on Mainstreet with a screening of the 1986 neo-noir film Blue Velvet. The mystery thriller is set in a small town in North Carolina, and its screening at Hudson Hall may solve a uniquely Hudson mystery: Who is the creator of The Hudson Wail? The Hudson Wail is hosting the screening of Blue Velvet, which takes place on Wednesday, March 29, at 7:00 p.m., and possibly, if you pay your $5 and go see the film, you'll get to find out who's the mind behind the Instagram account.

The Hudson City School District is also planning on screening some films as part of its "Hudson Has Heart" initiative. The films will be shown in the Junior/Senior High School Auditorium.
On Thursday, March 30, at 6:00 p.m., the film is Miss Representation, which "exposes damaging, sexist media messages that inhibit young women's happiness, ambition, and leadership." A trailer for the movie can be viewed here.
On Monday, April 17, at 6 p.m., the film is The Mask You Live In, which follows boys and young men "as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America's narrow definition of masculinity." The trailer for this movie can be viewed here.
Admission to both films is free and open to the public, but parental permission is required for anyone under the age of 18, which is most of the students in junior and senior high school. For more information, click here.
