Cotuit Cinema 2014

This year we are pleased to present a series of free films, popular classic movies that have a thematic tie to something else happening in the theater in the same weekend, and a few yet to be determined “Member’s Choice” screenings (yet another reason to become a member at the Center!).

We are also presenting a festival featuring exciting new entries from the 2014 Woods Hole Film Festival.

Watching a film in our theater is a real treat!  And the bar and concession stands are always open, so plan a movie night or two with us this year!

 

The Winding Stream: The Carters, The Cashes and The Course of Country Music

Sunday,  October 19 at 7:00pm

Best of the Fest: four nights of favorite entries from this year’s Woods Hole Film Festival.   Discounts are available for attending all four evenings.

The Winding Stream: The Carters, The Cashes and The Course of Country Music

Documentary Feature by Beth Harrington, Winner, Audience Award, Best Feature Documentary, WHFF 2014

The Winding Stream is the tale of the dynasty at the very heart of country music. Starting with the seminal Original Carter Family, A.P., Sara and Maybelle; the film traces the ebb and flow of their influence, the transformation of that act into the Carter Sisters and Mother Maybelle, the marital alliance between June Carter and music legend Johnny Cash, and the efforts of the present-day family to keep this legacy alive.

A story that has never been told in its entirety. The Winding Stream covers the epic sweep of this family’s saga all in one film.  It is told by family members; including Johnny Cash, Rosanne Cash, Janette Carter, as well as the musicians they influenced. And their musical contribution is vividly illustrated in performances by roots music practitioners like John Prine, George Jones, Sheryl Crow, Kris Kristofferson and many others.
