A note of appreciation goes out to founder Cristin Carlin and all those involved in The Newtown Film Festival, organizers and artists, alike. What a grand array of artistry and creativity last weekend on Main Street! One cannot find this kind of quality and variety, in subject and style, on the screen anywhere but at a first-rate film festival such as this one. How fortunate we were to be enchanted, inspired and entertained by these remarkable works--right here in our town!

Les Paul's Trio, featuring Brookfield resident Nicki Parrott, along with Lou Pallo and John Colianni, will be coming to the intimate Alexandria Room at Edmond Town Hall for a tribute to the legacy of Les Paul, as part of a yearlong 100th birthday celebration. The show is set for July 18 with tickets on sale now — and one lucky ticket holder will go home with a new Les Paul guitar.
Edmond Town Hall’s theater will be screening showings of Avengers: Age Of Ultron July 10-15, and a special showing free of charge, thanks to Ingersoll Auto of Danbury, will be shown on Saturday, July 11.

I am writing this letter because it is the correct thing to do and the people who care about the Edmond Town Hall must get involved.
I saw in this week’s Newtown Bee (May 15, 2015) about the new seats for the balcony. I could not believe what I just read. The article said the Edmond Town Hall is getting new seats. This could not be further than the truth.
