Coming This Summer: 
The UU Catskills Film Festival 

Four weeks of films for people of all ages! Services on themes from the films! 

Most weeks we will show two films, one geared more to adults and the other more geared toward children. The service on Sunday will focus on themes shared by the two films. Families may choose to watch either film together, or the children’s movie will be staffed if parents want to see the grownup movie while the kids see the children’s movie. Popcorn will be served!
