The January 22, 2016 (7pm) screening of Chappaqua has been postponed due to the inclement weather forecast in the Washington, DC area. The film has been rescheduled to Friday, February 12, 2016 (7pm). Tickets for the original date will be honored. If you would like to cancel your tickets, please email us at concerts [at]
