Filed under: Cold Spring Harbor,Events,Hamlets,News |

The following events are open to all. Advance registration is always requested.

Combating Climate Change
Wednesday, April 3, 7:00pm

Earth’s changing climate is a much debated topic. What does it mean for our oceans and local bays? What do we know about the changes, and more importantly, what can we do to address them? A Cornell Cooperative Extension Marine Outreach Educator will discuss local and global climate issues and how our local species are being effected.

Free and open to all. Advance registration requested.

CSH Cinema
Select Thursdays at 2pm. For R-rated films, those under 17 must be accompanied by an adult. When available, movies will be shown with closed captioning. Titles subject to change.

March 14: (This is a change to the previously announced title.) The Wife (R; 99min ) The story of a couple’s youthful passion and ambition interwoven with a portrait of a marriage, thirty-plus years later; a lifetime of shared compromises, secrets, betrayals, and mutual love.
April 4: Love, Gilda (NR, 88min) Never-before-seen footage and journal entries form the narrative spine of the documentary, allowing Gilda Radner to tell her own story; through the laughter and sometimes the tears. Incredibly, she was able to find humor in even the darkest of times. Her spirit lives on in comedy as a female trailblazer who continues to inspire many present day comedic performers.
April 18: Sinking Cities (NR, 110min) As the earth warms, sea levels rise, and super-storms become more frequent and intense; many major coastal cities will soon be under water. Sinking Cities shows New York, London, Tokyo, and Miami preparing for the real-time impact of rising seas and devising colossal new construction projects, and groundbreaking solutions aimed at securing their future.
