Movies under the stars at Easttown Library in Berwyn

Last night we got to experience watching a classic Philadelphia movie under the stars behind Easttown Library in Berwyn. Sponsored by the Berwyn Devon Business Association, this is just one of the many community events the association sponsors, it was well attended on a cool Summer evening with many people wearing coats and sweaters to ward off the breeze blowing across the field. It also gave us all the chance to see three planets lining up in a row just below the rising moon, thankfully I heard about that on NPR ealier in the week so knew to look for it and the view was perfect.

Movies under the Stars at Easttown Library

I walked up from home, carrying my chair, enjoyed some FREE popcorn, chatted with people on the way, speaking to one lady about her 1838 brick home and her dismay that a neighboring home had just been torn down by a developer to put up two houses on the same lot, both sold as soon as the sign went up. People love living in the Village of Berwyn, even if the new homes change the character from the older Victorian homes somewhat.

We had about 90 to 100 people turn out by the time the movie started, many families sitting on blankets or portable chairs. The library provided access to restrooms and we all perched on the shallow, sloping hillside to watch the movie on a portable screen.

Last month we got rained out, but saw JAWS inside the library, a great movie to start the summer off, and although it was made many years ago, it stood the test of time very well. Last night we saw The Philadelphia Story, with Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn, supposedly based on the Main Line and the Scott family living at Ardrossan Farm. 

The movie made me realize how you don't always remember things about older movies. Some of the scenes were definitely not politically correct and I am not sure the dialog would be made today without a lot of Tweets going out about it. Overall although it was a little cold as the evening went on, fun was had by all and it was a great movie.

August the movie will be more family oriented with Shrek being the choice. I am sure that will also be well attended.

Nick & Trudy, it is fun to go back to old movies and often our memories have changed about them so with a new set of eyes and ears it makes it more interesting. To me the best part was the camaraderie that this outdoor venue bought to the audience, Endre

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD now if they had just previewed some of my YouTube videos...:)

Brian England when we first came to the US this was where the local township had their firework displays, now they have been moved to a larger joint venue between the two neighboring townships. But, it brought back lots of memories of sitting there watching the fireworks.
