The Rockingham Historic Preservation Commission hosts double feature in cooperation with the Bellows Falls Opera House during the theater’s classic movie night.

Beginning at 6 p.m., Amanda Gustin of the Vermont Historical Society presents “Vermont vs. Hollywood: 100 Years of Vermont in Film,” followed by a showing of the 1988 movie “Funny Farm,” set in nearby Townshend. “Funny Farm” plays at 7 p.m.

Vermont has been a featured location in Hollywood movies for nearly a century. It has represented many different ideals during that time, and its portrayal reflects both Vermont’s own history as well as American history. Examining those films provides interesting and fun insights into the hold Vermont has had on imagination in the media age.
