We love food just about as much as we love film — given this, it’s with great pleasure that we partner once again with Lowell National Historical Park on their ongoing Lowell Folklife Series which focuses on Immigrant Food Traditions. We had a blast working with the National Park on their first food and film program in February which featured our sold out screening of Chocolat followed in April with their salute to Julia Child which included our screening of Julie & Julia. For our third partnership, we invite you to pucker up for a mouth-watering “Pickle Talk” with special guest Beryl Rosenthal — former director of Lowell’s Tsongas Industrial History Center and current executive director of the Metropolitan Waterworks Museum in Boston — who will introduce us to New York Jewish pickle traditions. We’re pretty confident this will be your first pickle talk so you probably won’t need much more of an incentive, but just in case, we’re going to follow this great presentation with a screening of the 1988 rom-com Crossing Delancey, a kind-hearted film about a humble pickle man (Peter Riegert) and the woman of his dreams (Amy Irving). With its memorable characters, dreams-can-come-true story line, and a glimpse of Jewish culture on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, the film charmed both critics and audiences and garnered a Golden Globe nomination for Irving. Whether you’re seeing Crossing Delancey before or enjoying it for the first time, this is THE perfect way to experience it.

Stay tuned to this page for any updates to the program — we hope to see you on September 8 for another fabulous night of food and film!
