The Friends of the Ludlow Auditorium (FOLA) screens Sweet Bird of Youth.

Rated R, the film is based on the Tennessee Williams play of the same name and stars Paul Newman, Geraldine Page, Shirley Knight, Ed Begley and Rip Torn.

Handsome Chance Wayne (Newman) returns to his hometown accompanied by a considerably older film star, Alexandra Del Lago. She is needy and depressed and speaks of retiring from acting. Chance had gone to Hollywood to seek fame and fortune at the behest of powerful “Boss” Finley. Finley wanted Chance, a waiter from the country club, to keep away from his beautiful daughter, Heavenly.

The movie is free and open to the public. Donations are welcomed. Berkshire Bank supplies popcorn, and FOLA provides water. For information, call 802-228-7239 or click here.
