Let’s go out to the lobby…or maybe into it, because of the rain!

By: Kate Betz, Manager of Public Programs
Last week, I had the pleasure of hosting our first ever (at least in the memory of everyone I have asked) outdoor movie on the back lawn of the Fenimore Art Museum. For the next three weeks, we will be hosting movies every Wednesday night. I have to send huge thanks to everyone who came out for their patience with our new format and most especially with the weather. We had a rain plan in place just in case, and it’s a good thing we did. Just as Princess Ann’s royal parents were sending incognito spies to track her down, rain drops began to fall. We had to pause the movie, bring everyone inside, and get set up in our auditorium. Luckily, we managed to get inside before the real rain started. This year’s outdoor series is titled “Americans Abroad.” All of the movies offer a different perspective on Americans traveling to foreign countries—from news reporter to comedic swindler. Each evening features lawn games (watch out, I’m a bocce champion!) and snacks as well as one of the most spectacular views of Otsego Lake in town. Check our website for the complete schedule. I hope to see you there!
