•• Fall is the time when the big Hollywood studios trot out their Oscar-bait movies, which means many good films are on the way to the multiplexes. But the bounty of good entertainment doesn’t end there.
Small venues throughout the state are planning fun, eclectic lineups of foreign, classic and independent films. Also, there are plenty of film festivals coming this way for all kinds of tastes: Spanish-language films, Irish films, LGBT-themed films, short films. And don’t forget the super-popular Met Live in HD opera series.
Sandra Oh, Thomas Haden Church, Virginia Madsen and Paul Giamatti star in #Sideways to be featured at a dinner-and-film on Oct. 22 at The Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art’s in Connecticut. More info: http://www.thewadsworth.org
