He soon meets Chloe and, before they know it, they're dancing to Duke Ellington and plunging headfirst into a romance.

WHITE BIRD IN A BLIZZARD, Nov. 5-9 at 5:30 p.m. Kat Connors (Shailene Woodley) is 17 years old when her perfect homemaker mother, Eve (Eva Green), a beautiful, enigmatic, and haunted woman, disappears - just as Kat is discovering and relishing her newfound sexuality. Having lived for so long in a stifled, emotionally repressed household, she barely registers her mother's absence and certainly doesn't blame her doormat of a father, Brock (Christopher Meloni), for the loss. In fact, it's almost a relief. But as time passes, Kat begins to come to grips with how deeply Eve's disappearance has affected her. Returning home on a break from college, she finds herself confronted with the truth about her mother's departure, and her own denial about the events surrounding it...

https://www.facebook.com/events/55322643

LAST DAYS IN VIETNAM, Nov. 12-16 at 5:30 p.m. During the chaotic final days of the Vietnam War, the North Vietnamese Army closes in on Saigon as South Vietnamese resistance crumbles. The United States has only a skeleton crew of diplomats and military operatives still in the country. As Communist victory becomes inevitable and the U.S. readies to withdraw, some Americans begin to consider the certain imprisonment and possible death of their South Vietnamese allies, co-workers, and friends. Meanwhile, the prospect of an official evacuation of South Vietnamese becomes terminally delayed by Congressional gridlock and the inexplicably optimistic U.S. Ambassador. With the clock ticking and the city under fire, a number of heroic Americans take matters into their own hands, engaging in unsanctioned and often makeshift operations in a desperate effort to save as many South Vietnamese lives as possible.

www.facebook.com/events/1537157496500153

ART AND CRAFT, November 19-23 at 5:30 p.m. Mark Landis has been called one of the most prolific art forgers in US history. His impressive body of work spans thirty years, covering a wide range of painting styles and periods that includes 15th Century Icons, Picasso, and even Walt Disney. And while the copies could fetch impressive sums on the open market, Landis isn’t in it for money. Posing as a philanthropic donor, a grieving executor of a family member’s will, and most recently as a Jesuit priest, Landis has given away hundreds of works over the years to a staggering list of institutions across the United States. But after duping Matthew Leininger, a tenacious registrar who ultimately discovers the decades-long ruse and sets out to expose his philanthropic escapades to the art world, Landis must confront his own legacy and a chorus of museum professionals clamoring for him to stop.

19 Sweetback Sisters Country Christmas Singalong Spectacular

earlvilleoperahouse.com

Starts at 8pm at the Oneida Community Mansion House, 170 Kenwood Avenue, Oneida, NY 13421. Country Christmas Singalong Spectacular has a predominantly swing bottom line with a barn-raisin' country savor that's absolutely irresistible. Zara Bode and Emily Miller really are sweet, their voices like meadowlarks and they boast a crack outfit behind 'em, anchored by a guy who's astonishing on guitar.The combination of all that results in a zesty, spirited, and sometimes backwoods reverential disc that's also just plain fun. Look at Country Christmas as though it were the LP Dan Hicks, the Andrews Sisters, and Dolly Parton never teamed up to put out F.A.M.E.
