In The Whale

Wednesday, July 31 2024

Doors open at 6 PM, film starts at 7:15 PM.

In the shark-filled waters off Cape Cod, Michael Packard has long tempted fate. For several months a year, Packard and his longtime mate, Josiah Mayo, cast off nearly every morning around dawn and navigate through the half-light to their diving grounds off Provincetown, the idiosyncratic, isolated community where they grew up at the tip of the Cape. Packard buckles on his scuba tank and plunges into the cold waters to hunt on the seafloor.

In The Whale is the account of a man who survived to tell the tale of being swallowed by a whale, and what happened after he escaped.

Director and Pulitzer Prize-wining reporter David Abel will speak after the film and answer questions.

The Power of Stone

Wednesday, August 14 2024

Doors open at 6 PM, film starts at 7:15 PM.

The Power of Stone offers a glimpse into the life of renowned stone artist, Lew French, during the time he was working to create the Rose Styron Garden for the Martha’s Vineyard Museum. At first, Lew French appears as unyielding as the granite he works with, but beneath this artist’s rigid exterior is a deeply spiritual soul. Though he wakes up at 4am to meditate every day, Lew struggles to quiet his mind. In stone, Lew finds that which he longs for: stillness. As one friend put it, “Don’t be tricked by the idea that he’s a stone mason. He’s sort of a philosopher, artist, spiritual guide who’s working with stone.”
