Lenox: Ventfort to screen films with Berkshire connections


Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum will screen the film "Alice’s Restaurant" at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 31, as part of a summer film series featuring movies with connections to the Berkshires.

Films will be introduced by those who have had a part in their making or by film aficionados in the manner of Turner Classic Movies.

"Alice’s Restaurant" (1969) stars Arlo Guthrie and features Pat Quinn and James Broderick, with special appearances by Pete Seeger and Lee Hays. In the late 1960s, a changing social and political climate inspired a new generation to create a lifestyle outside of the mainstream. Reminiscences will introduce the film.

The suggested free-will donation is $10 per person. Free popcorn and a wine and soft drinks cash bar will be offered. Seating is limited.

Ventfort Hall is located at 104 Walker St. Information: (413) 637-3206 or info@gildedage.org.
