And you can always make suggestions about films or complete a film survey and e-mail the finished document to kinoken@ligoniervalleycinemaassociation.net . If you would like to donate a DVD to the Ligonier Valley Cinema Association, just press the Donations Policy button. So have a look around the website, explore and enjoy.

Do you have a question about films that has been bugging you? Or a suggestion for a future poll? Perhaps you would like to share the title of a film that greatly impressed you. If any of these is the case, please send Kino Ken an e-mail so the LVCA is apprised of it. Use the e-address above, please.

Watch our web site for Kino Ken’s reviews of films screened at the Regent Square Theater as part of the 2013 Three Rivers Film Festival. And mark your 2014 calendars to keep space open on November weekends for the Three Rivers Film Festival.

Explore and enjoy! I hope to get your e-mail soon. And don’t forget to visit us again.

Great news for admirers of film musicals. WEST SIDE STORY, the March, 2014 LVCA dvd donation to the Ligonier Valley Library, is now processed and available to borrow from them. If you haven’t yet seen this dynamic American musical, don’t pass up the opportunity to see it.

The LVCA is sponsoring a trip to Pittsburgh on Sunday afternoon, March 23rd, 2014 to view the subtitled Polish film WALESA, MAN OF HOPE, directed by Lifetime Achievement Oscar winner Andrzej Wajda, a former Solidarity legislator. Lech Walesa’s wife is scheduled to be present for the 4:30 p.m. screening at McConomy Auditorium of Carnegie Mellon University, University Center. Ticket cost is $8.00 payable in advance via credit card / adult, less for students. More information about tickets and the film itself are available at www.cmu.edu/faces .
A signup sheet for those wishing to attend will be available outside the Hugh Stouppe Memorial Library of the Heritage United Methodist Church. Please indicate number of people wishing to attend / family when you sign up.
Dinner at your own expense will be at a Route 30 restaurant on the trip back. If sufficient numbers of people sign up in advance, the LVCA will attempt to provide van transportation. Otherwise car pooling will have to be worked out in advance.

Animations, documentaries, narrative comedies and dramas, a musical, a silent film, English-language films, foreign-language films, children’s films, family films and short films are all contenders. Some are available on dvd. Others are accessible via the Internet. Evaluate your preference(s) using the LVCA forms at www.ligoniervalleycinemaassociation.net or paper forms available from the “LVCA mailbox” outside the doorway of the Hugh Stouppe Memorial Library of the Heritage United Methodist Church of Ligonier, Pennsylvania. The points on the evaluation forms count as goals. Without them, no film can advance to the second round.
Don’t let your favorite be eliminated in the first round. All dvd films can be borrowed from the Hugh Stouppe Memorial Library. Come visit us and join the fun!
