Join the Redford Theatre's Watch Party this Thursday Night

This Thursday night, watch a classic flick from the comfort of your home, while watching online with dozens of other people. It isn't quite the same as going to a movie theatre, but it's as close as it comes without leaving your house! The Redford Theatre has been hosting Facebook watch parties featuring great movies that happen to be in the public domain. During the movie, the Redford Theatre and fellow watchers sometimes comment on the movie or throw out fun facts in the comments section, so it makes the experience a little more exciting than just watching a movie alone. The watch parties are free to attend, although you can show your support by making a donation to the Motor City Theatre Organ Society, which runs the theatre. Usually you can even make a donation right through Facebook during the movie. 

The Redford Theatre's weekly watch parties take place on Thursday evenings. This week's film is The Man with the Golden Arm, starring Frank Sinatra, Kim Novak, and Eleanor Parker. The story follows illegal card dealer and recovering heroin addict Frankie Machine (Frank Sinatra) who gets out of prison and decides to straighten up. "Armed with nothing but an old drum set, Frankie tries to get honest work as a drummer. But when his former employer, small-time con man Schwiefka (Robert Strauss), and Frankie's old drug dealer, Louis (Darren McGavin), re-enter his life, Frankie finds it hard to stay clean." Check out the trailer for the movie below:

 

Thursday's Facebook watch party begins at 9:06 p.m. To watch, just head to the Redford Theatre's Facebook page here. To make a donation to the theatre and the Motor City Theatre Organ Society and help ensure that you can return to this historic theatre to watch a movie someday, click here

The Boston-Edison Holiday Home Tour Goes Virtual

Have you ever driven through Boston-Edison and wondered what those beautiful homes look like inside? Well, here is your chance to check them out from the comfort of your own home! 

Every year, the Historic Boston-Edison Association hosts a holiday home tour. The tour is usually limited to 800 guests and sells out very quickly. Well, this year, to keep everyone safe, the non-profit has moved the tour to a virtual platform. The tour will be narrated and will feature five historically significant properties on display, decorated for the holiday season. You will get a chance to "meet" the current owners of these homes, and tour the exterior and interior of the properties. 
The holiday home tour is the largest annual fundraiser for HBEA. Tickets for this year's event are $10 and can be purchase online here. The tour will debut on Sunday, December 13th on the Boston-Edison website and can be viewed anytime through January 1, 2021. You can also help out this great non-profit by purchasing merchandise from their online store here
