I have tickets to a special screening nest Saturday (Sept, 3)
I'm really looking forward to seeing it.
"Senna" the movie comes to N.W. Corner!
The Moviehouse and Lime Rock Park Join Forces to Bring “Senna” to Millerton, N.Y.
The most talked about, critically acclaimed racing movie in years, the documentary “Senna,” is coming to the Northwest Corner of Connecticut. Well, six miles away, anyway.
Thanks to the combined persuasive powers of Millerton, N.Y.’s The Moviehouse and Lime Rock Park, as part of the numerous events surrounding Labor Day weekend’s vintage racing extravaganza – Historic Festival 29 and the Sunday in the Park Concours – a special one-week run of “Senna” begins Friday, September 2.
“Senna,” which the Los Angeles Times says is, "...a documentary with the pace of a thriller, a story of motors and machines that is beyond compelling because of the intensely human story it tells," is in limited, major-markets only release. (Click here to see the trailer at IMDB.com
But thanks to the efforts of Carol Sadlon, who with her husband Rob own and operate The Moviehouse, the distributor has agreed to bring the movie to Lime Rock Park fans.
IN ADDITION, an extra-special showing has been arranged: Lime Rock fans are being given the first opportunity to come to a 9:40 p.m. showing on Saturday, September 3
(7:00 p.m. has sold out) that will have Skip Barber, Sam Posey and Bob Sharp in attendance, introduced by the mayor of Millerton, the Honorable John Scutieri. Skip, Sam and Bob will then hold a post-movie Q&A.
For that showing, vintage cars will be on display in front of The Moviehouse and on the property directly across the street at Simmons Way Village Inn, Millerton’s historic and elegant Victorian retreat.
The cost for the special Saturday, September 3 show is $15, and includes a “Senna” poster, a soda and a popcorn – and of course the chance to meet Skip Barber, Sam Posey and Bob Sharp. Note that this special show will likely sell out quickly, so do not hesitate if you want to see this special “Senna” showing.
