The Craft Screening and Q and A @ Greenwich Odeum | East Greenwich | Rhode Island | United States

Join us for a special screening of The Craft, Grand Prize winner at the 2019 Rhode Island International Film Festival. The Craft offers a behind-the-scenes look into Rhode Island’s booming craft beer industry that examines this rich subject matter from a variety of angles and perspectives. It delves into the personal histories and career paths of a number of our state’s most well-known brewers, the history of Rhode Island’s oldest and still-beloved “craft” brand, Narragansett Beer, the industry’s growing impact on our state’s economy and recent legislative changes that have supported this growth, and, of course, the ins and outs of the brewing process itself.

Attendees will have the opportunity to indulge in RI craft beer as well as partaking in a Q and A session with a number of RI’s brewers as well as the filmmakers following the screening.

Rhode Island mOnthly Presents Odeum Classic Films: It's a Wonderful Life @ Greenwich Odeum | East Greenwich | Rhode Island | United States

Join us for an annual Odeum tradition – It’s a Wonderful Life!

George Bailey spends his entire life giving up his big dreams for the good of his town, Bedford Falls, as we see in flashback. But in the present, on Christmas Eve, he is broken and suicidal over the misplacing of an $8,000 loan and the machinations of the evil millionaire Mr. Potter. His guardian angel, Clarence, falls to Earth, literally, and shows him how his town, family, and friends would have turned out if he had never been born. George meant so much to so many people; should he really throw it all away?

Santa Claus does not exist. Or does he? For one doubting boy, an astonishing event occurs. Late on Christmas Eve night, he lies in bed hoping to hear the sound of reindeer bells from Santa’s sleigh. When to his surprise, a steam engine’s roar and whistle can be heard outside his window. The conductor invites him on board to take an extraordinary journey to the North Pole with many other pajama-clad children. There, he receives an extraordinary gift only those who still believe in Santa can experience.
