SILENT FILM

Nosferatu – July 6

The 1922 “Nosferatu” is an atypical expressionist film, in that much of it was shot on location. While many directors built vast forests and entire towns within a film studio, the landscapes, villages and castles featured in Director F.W. Murnau’s “Nosferatu” were actual locations in the Carpathian Mountains. Rather than depicting Dracula as a shape-shifting monster or debonair gentleman, Murnau’s vampire is a nightmarish, spidery creature with a bulbous head and talon-like claws – perhaps the most genuinely disturbing incarnation of vampirism yet envisioned.Running time: 84 minutes With live musical accompaniment by Hank Troy on piano. Monday, July 6. 7:30 PM. Chautauqua Auditorium. Buy tickets online.

 

FAMILY

JUST ANNOUNCED! Tuesday Tucks Me In – July 28

“Tuesday Tucks Me In,” Amazon’s “Best Nonfiction Children’s Book of 2014,” is a “2014 Goodreads Choice Award” finalist, the Children’s Book Council’s selection as a “2015 Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People,” and a finalist in four categories of the “2015 International Latino Book Awards.” Tuesday, July 28. 2:00 PM.

AUTHORS

JUST ANNOUNCED! Captain Luis Carlos Montalván: Until Tuesday  – July 28

The story of golden retriever service dog, “Tuesday” and former U.S. Army Captain and New York Times bestselling author, Luis Carlos Montalván continues in an evening author talk for adults.
A highly decorated captain in the U.S. Army, Luis Carlos Montalván never backed down from a challenge during his two tours of duty in Iraq. After returning home from combat, however, the pressures of his physical wounds, traumatic brain injury, and crippling post-traumatic stress disorder began to take their toll.
Haunted by the war and in constant physical pain, he soon found himself unable to climb a simple flight of stairs or face a bus ride to the VA hospital. He drank; he argued; ultimately, he cut himself off from those he loved. Alienated and alone, unable to sleep or bend over without pain, he began to wonder if he would ever recover. Then Luis met Tuesday, a beautiful and sensitive golden retriever trained to assist the disabled. Tuesday had lived among prisoners and at a home for troubled boys, blessing many lives; he could turn on lights, open doors, and sense the onset of anxiety and flashbacks. But because of a unique training situation and sensitive nature, he found it difficult to trust in or connect with a human being ― until Luis.
“Until Tuesday” is the story of how two wounded warriors, who had given so much and suffered the consequences, found salvation in each other. It is a story about war and peace, injury and recovery, psychological wounds and spiritual restoration. But more than that, it is a story about the love between a man and a dog, and how they healed each other’s souls.
“Until Tuesday,” a New York Times bestseller in 2011, 2012 and 2013, won two USA Best Book Awards and received finalist honors for an Audio Publishers Association (APA) “Audie Award” and an International Latino Book Award. Tuesday, July 28. 7:30 PM. Chautauqua Community House. Buy tickets online.
