7/23- Deep Blue Sea (1999)

22 sq ft 22 gross/month

Partnering with the Green Mountian Gore Society!

 

If there’s one thing Renny Harlin does well, it’s craft thrilling action with big budget flair. As such, Deep Blue Sea isn’t exactly high-brow, but boy does it entertain. There’s a gleeful sense of fun, as Harlin speeds from exhilarating action sequence to action sequence. It’s a reminder that movies don’t always have to have a profound depth or statement to make to solidify their ranks as worthwhile cinema; just pure summer fun will sometimes do.

 

Deep Blue Sea was the first film Stephen King saw in theaters after nearly dying from a vehicular accident and he enjoyed every second of it. So did critic Roger Ebert. The point being is that there’s a reason Deep Blue Sea was profitable during its theatrical run, and why it still has a solid fanbase today. Harlin dared to bring the horror genre back to the high-budget ranks of films like Jaws, a rarity when horror has increasingly become relegated to low budget profit machines. Jaws may be the granddaddy of all shark horror films, but Deep Blue Sea proved action horror, great special effects, and a strong grasp of suspense can be just as memorable.

7/30- Rear Window (1959)

22 sq ft 22 gross/month

One of Alfred Hitchcock's very best efforts, Rear Window is a crackling suspense film where the protagonist is a seemingly ordinary man who gets himself in trouble for his secret desires. A newspaper photographer with a broken leg (James Stewart) passes time recuperating by observing his neighbors through his window. He sees what he believes to be a murder, and decides to solve the crime himself. With the help of his nurse (Thelma Ritter) and girlfriend (Grace Kelly), he tries to catch the murderer without being killed himself.

To benefit: Story Yoga

22 sq ft 22 gross/month

“The Power of Community to create health is far greater than any physician, clinic, or hospital”

 

~ Mark Hyman

Story Yoga is a nonprofit yoga teacher training program currently offering a YTT for people in addiction recovery. The idea was born from a desire to provide options for people who felt they did not have any. Our mission is to educate successful certified yoga teachers, while simultaneously using yoga as a catalyst to create healthy communities.  Story Yoga empowers participants through education.  The teacher training is an opportunity for yoga practitioners to connect with community on a more personal level, learn transferable life skills, and support one another on their own unique journey.  Story yoga is based on the vision that people can heal, learn, and create while building professional skills 

 

The program is designed to offer practical job training and skill building. We will help graduates become successful yoga teachers and support them in finding employment as certified instructors. Upon completion, graduates will develop a yoga class or workshop of their own design, as well as a marketing plan to fill their event!​

 

We believe each person has a unique story that will inform their work in the world.  The training will open with two weekends dedicated to meditation, self-study, and intention setting to empower graduates to use their personal experience to inform their teaching. We will also begin to explore how to take our yoga practice out of the studio and into our daily lives.  ​

 

We believe in the power of yoga and the importance of community support.  Please look around our site, join us for an event, or visit us on social media.  We look forward to getting to know you.
