The Catamount Gallery Group, which exists to promote and encourage artistic talent in the Northeast Kingdom, was created by Patty Mucha and Lois Whitmore in 1993-1994 under the direction of Phil Reynolds, who was then the executive director of Catamount Arts. The initial group was composed of twenty local artists from northern Vermont and New Hampshire. The membership of the group has now increased to more than 80 artists from the area. The Gallery Group’s show each March is one of the largest and most highly anticipated exhibits in the Northeast Kingdom. This year, as in recent years, the show will be curated by Bob Manning, a local artist and art historian who is also a member of Catamount’s Board of Directors. This year’s Catamount Gallery Group show will be on display through Sunday, April 1. Catamount’s galleries are open free to the public from 11:00 am – 6:00 pm Monday through Saturday and before and after each film screening.

THE COMEDY OF ERRORS broadcast to cinemas worldwide as part of
National Theatre Live
5 Stars ‘Wall-to-wall joy. Sublime.’ Daily Mail
5 Stars ‘Fabulous fun… Dominic Cooke’s imaginative, superbly acted contemporary production’ Mail on Sunday
William Shakespeare’s THE COMEDY OF ERRORS, directed by Dominic Cooke, with Lenny Henry as Antipholus of Syracuse, will be filmed live at the National’s Olivier Theatre and broadcast as part of NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE to cinemas and performing arts venues around the UK and Europe on 1 March, and varying dates internationally (see HYPERLINK "http://www.ntlive.com" www.ntlive.com for other international dates).
Two sets of twins separated at birth collide in the same city without meeting for one crazy day, as multiple mistaken identities lead to confusion on a grand scale.
Shakespeare’s furiously paced comedy is staged in a contemporary world into which walk three prohibited foreigners who see everything for the first time.
Lenny Henry made his Shakespearean debut in the title role of Othello for Northern Broadsides/West Yorkshire Playhouse, which transferred to the West End and for which he won the 2009 Evening Standard Outstanding Newcomer Award. He has toured worldwide with his stand-up comedy shows, and has appeared in and presented innumerable television dramas, comedies and documentaries, including Three of a Kind, The Lenny Henry Show, Alive and Kicking, Chef!, Hope & Glory and Lenny Henry in Pieces. His many awards include the Lifetime Achievement - Performance Award at the 2003 British Comedy Awards, and a Golden Rose at the Montreux Television Festival.
Dominic Cooke is Artistic Director of the Royal Court, where his productions have included Chicken Soup with Barley, Clybourne Park (also West End) and The Pain and the Itch. He was Associate Director of the RSC from 2002-06, where his work included Arabian Nights, Pericles, The Winter’s Tale, The Crucible (Olivier Awards for Best Director and Best Revival), As You Like It and Cymbeline.
The cast also includes Marcus Adolphy, Tom Anderson, Paul Bentall, Claudie Blakley, Ian Burfield, Silas Carson, Clare Cathcart, Adrian Hood, Chris Jarman, Lucian Msamati, Yvonne Newman, Pamela Nomvete, Rhiannon Oliver, Jude Owusu, Simon Parish, Daniel Poyser, Grace Thurgood, Amit Shah, Michelle Terry, Everal A Walsh and Rene Zagger. The production is designed by Bunny Christie, with lighting by Paule Constable, music by Gary Yershon, movement by Ann Yee, sound by Christopher Shutt and fight direction by Kate Waters.
NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE performances are filmed live in high definition and broadcast via satellite to over 700 cinemas around the world, live in the UK and Europe and time delayed in countries further afield. There are over 120 venues in the UK alongside venues in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Mexico, India, Scandinavia and Europe. The performances at the National are
nominated in advance to allow cameras greater freedom in the auditorium.
NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE is presented in partnership with Aviva.
Notes to editors
The National Theatre
The National Theatre, founded in 1963, and established on the South Bank of the River Thames in London in 1976, has three theatres – the Olivier, the Lyttelton and the Cottesloe. It presents an eclectic mix of new plays and classics, with seven or eight productions in repertory (sharing the stages) at any one time. Actors often appear in more than one play during a season or return to the National regularly. The National aims constantly to re-energise the great traditions of the British stage and to expand the horizons of audiences and artists alike, and aspires to reflect in its repertoire the diversity of the nation’s culture. With its extensive programme of Platform performances, backstage tours, foyer music, exhibitions, and free outdoor entertainment the National recognises that the theatre doesn’t begin and end with the rise and fall of the curtain. By touring – and now, National Theatre Live - it shares its work with audiences in the UK and abroad.
National Theatre Live events are distributed outside the U.K. through New York-based BY Experience, Inc, the pioneer of global live “alternative content” digital cinema events. For more information visit "http://www.byexperience.net" www.byexperience.net
THE COMEDY OF ERRORS runs for 2 hours and 30 minutes.

The blog is about a performance piece the daughter of our member is doing. The concept is pretty interesting and reminds me a lot of the idea of "not-doing" in the writings of Carlos Castaneda, where the object is to disrupt, even momentarily, the normal flow of perception to help open yourself to the large possibilities in the universe.

Here is the list of the upcoming films in order of their show dates. Hope to see you at the movies!
February 3 - February 9
My Week with Marilyn:
In the early summer of 1956, 23 year-old Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne), just down from Oxford and determined to make his way in the film business, worked as a lowly assistant on the set of 'The Prince and the Showgirl'. The film that famously united Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh) and Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams), who was also on honeymoon with her new husband, the playwright Aurthur Miller (Dougray Scott). Nearly 40 years on, his diary account The Prince, the Showgirl and Me was published, but one week was missing and this was published some years later as My Week with Marilyn - this is the story of that week. When Arthur Miller leaves England, the coast is clear for Colin to introduce Marilyn to some of the pleasures of British life; an idyllic week in which he escorted a Monroe desperate to get away from her retinue of Hollywood hangers-on and the pressures of work. -- (C) Weinstein
Nominated for Golden Globes for- Best Picture, Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical (Michelle Williams), Best Supporting Actor (Kenneth Branagh)

February 10 - February 16
Charlize Theron plays Mavis Gary, a writer of teen literature who returns to her small hometown to relive her glory days and attempt to reclaim her happily married high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson). When returning home proves more difficult than she thought, Mavis forms an unusual bond with a former classmate (Patton Oswalt) who hasn't quite gotten over high school, either. -- (C) Paramount
Nominated for Golden Globes - Best Actress Comedy or Musical (Charlize Theron)
A French family with two daughters, 10-year-old Laure and 6-year-old Jeanne, moves to a new neighborhood during the summer holidays. With her Jean Seberg haircut and tomboy ways, Laure is immediately mistaken for a boy by the local kids and passes herself off as Michael. Filmmaker Céline Sciamma brings a light and charming touch to this drama of childhood gender confusion. Zoe Heran as Laure/Michael and Malonn Levanna as Jeanne are nothing less than brilliant. This is a relationship movie: relationships between children, and the even more complicated one between one's heart and body. -- (C) Rocket Releasing
February 17 - February 23
Ryan Gosling stars as a Los Angeles wheelman for hire, stunt driving for movie productions by day and steering getaway vehicles for armed heists by night. Though a loner by nature, Driver can't help falling in love with his beautiful neighbor Irene (Carey Mulligan), a vulnerable young mother dragged into a dangerous underworld by the return of her ex-convict husband Standard (Oscar Isaac). After a heist intended to pay off Standard's protection money spins unpredictably out of control, Driver finds himself driving defense for the girl he loves, tailgated by a syndicate of deadly serious criminals. But when he realizes that the gangsters are after more than the bag of cash in his trunk-that they're coming straight for Irene and her son-Driver is forced to shift gears and go on offense. -- (C) FilmDistrict
Nominated for Golden Globe - Best Supporting Actor (Albert Brooks)
“Weekend,” Andrew Haigh’s astonishingly self-assured, unassumingly profound second feature.... In its matter-of-fact, tightly focused observation of two young men who find their one-night stand growing into something more serious, the movie ranges over vast, often neglected regions of 21st-century life. It is about the paradoxes and puzzlements of gay identity in a post-identity-politics era, and also about the enduring mystery of sexual attraction and its consequences. (c) New York Times
February 24 - March 1
A Dangerous Method:
Seduced by the challenge of an impossible case, the driven Dr. Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) takes the unbalanced yet beautiful Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley) as his patient in A Dangerous Method. Jung's weapon is the method of his master, the renowned Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen). Both men fall under Sabina's spell. -- (C) Sony Pictures Classics
Nominated for Golden Globe - Best Supporting Actor (Viggo Mortensen)
