      Sunday, March 24, 2019 The Anniversary Show (Screening + Fundraiser)   Being There (1979) Directed by Hal Ashby Doors 7:00 PM / Start 7:30 PM @ The Mini - 1329 Main St. Drinks/Snacks by Joe Trame Poster by Peter Van Hyning The Anniversary Show is The Mini’s new monthly fundraiser celebrating films that reach significant historical milestones in 2019. Support our mission by attending these super special ticketed events, which include themed drinks and snacks. Our March program presents Being There, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2019.  “In one of his most finely tuned performances, Peter Sellers plays the pure-hearted, childlike Chance, a gardener who is forced into the wilds of Washington, D.C., when his wealthy guardian dies. Shocked to discover that the real world doesn’t respond to the click of a remote, Chance stumbles into celebrity after being taken under the wing of a tycoon (Melvyn Douglas, in an Oscar-winning performance), who mistakes his protégé’s horticultural mumblings for sagacious pronouncements on life and politics, and whose wife (Shirley MacLaine) targets Chance as the object of her desire. Adapted from a novel by Jerzy Kosinski, this satire, both deeply melancholy and hilarious, is the culmination of Hal Ashby’s remarkable string of films in the 1970s, and a carefully modulated examination of the ideals, anxieties, and media-fueled delusions that shaped American culture during that decade.” - Criterion (130 min) Tickets: $25
