We are proud to bring another season of classic films to Newtown’s Edmond Town Hall (map). Fifty years ago, David Lean’s sweeping epic adaptation of Boris Pasternak’s Nobel Prize-winning story captivated movie audiences. It opened December 22, 1965, and earned 5 Oscars with 5 nominations (bowing to The Sound of Music for Best Picture), along with every major Golden Globe award.
The story has stood the test of time, and last year, even made a brief appearance on Broadway as a musical.
Enjoy this cinematic gem in its rightful home once again, the theater, on Sunday, January 31, 2016 at 3 pm and 7 pm. Tickets are $2.00. Doctor Zhivago is sponsored by Event Services, Inc., so please visit them for your special event planning needs.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s ( the 1961 romantic comedy based on a story by Truman Capote) will be shown at 4pm and 7pm at the Edmond Town Hall on Sunday, November 8, 2015. Costumes are encouraged and awards will be given to the best lookalikes from the film.
Fans will remember the theme song “Moon River” from this film, written by Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer. Mancini received two Oscars in 1962, for Best Music Score and Best Original Song for “Moon River”, and also won several Grammys that year, including Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Soundtrack Album, among others.
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of its release, we will be showing The Sound of Music on Sunday, December 13, the sing-along at 4 pm, & film at 7pm.
Both films are sponsored by Filet (FiletNewtownCT.com) and The Hook (TheSandyHook.com).
