Adults Only Movie Night

A BENEFIT IN SUPPORT OF PROVIDENCE CHILDREN'S FILM FESTIVAL PROGRAMMING

Sorry kids, this one's not for you. Don't miss this once-a-year screening to support the Providence Children's Film Festival’s curated film programming from around the globe! For all of us adults who love the Festival as much as the children do, Eric Bilodeau, Director of Programming, will lightheartedly showcase what he calls "the best of the worst"—submitted films that left us wondering how ANYONE might have thought they were appropriate for young viewers. It's an eclectic mix, ranging from movies with mature themes to films that make one slap their forehead in disbelief. Nothing dull here!

This enjoyable evening is co-hosted by Lindsay Shaw of the Providence Athenaeum. Guests will enjoy an exquisite signature cocktail, complimentary wine bar curated by Campus Fine Wines, scrumptious appetizers from several local restaurants and tantalizing desserts from The Cupcakerie.

Saturday, April 7, 2018

6:00 pm, drinks/appetizers and silent auction followed by desserts and screening

Providence Athenaeum, 251 Benefit St., Providence
