But for seventeen-year old Simon Spier it’s a little more complicated: he’s yet to tell his family or friends he’s gay and he doesn’t actually know the identity of the anonymous classmate he’s fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life changing. Directed by Greg Berlanti (Riverdale, The Flash, Supergirl), written by Isaac Aptaker & Elizabeth Berger (This is Us), and based on Becky Albertalli’s acclaimed novel, LOVE, SIMON is a funny and heartfelt coming-of-age story about the thrilling ride of finding yourself and falling in love. Rated PG-13. To receive an email reminder for this event, CLICK HERE.

Pleasant in Westchester County, was declared “the second most impressive home in America.” Vanderbilt’s “Biltmore” in North Carolina was the first. The mansion itself contained 200 – rooms and no expense was spared in its’ design, construction, and furnishings. Spanning nearly 1,000 – acres along the Hudson, equal precision was put to the design of the estate landscape, gardens, out buildings and carriage trails. However, by 1941 it would all be gone. Local Historian and Researcher Paul Barrett invites us on a tour of this once commanding Gilded–Age estate, taking us around the mansion, into the main hall, through many of the opulently furnished interior rooms, and through the expansive out-of–doors with views of the lush gardens and estate buildings.
