The Band's Visit

Saturday, May 12
7:00 p.m.

North Shore United Methodist Church
(213 Hazel Avenue, Glencoe)

For the last film group of this season, we have a light, touching Israeli movie for you! When the Alexandria Ceremonial Police Orchestra arrives from Egypt to play at an Arab Cultural Center and accidentally gets on the wrong bus, ending up in a tiny outpost in the Negev, the eight band members must spend the night and catch the next day's bus. Their interactions with the locals that night are filled with humor, surprise, and longing. The film won 8 Israeli Ophir awards in 2007, including best film, actor, and actress. The story is now a Broadway musical of the same name that has won universally rave reviews.

Come for dinner at 6:00 p.m. We'll be ordering pizza from Little Red Hen ($5 a person), so please RSVP for dinner to Carol McCardell (847-727-0029) by noon on May 12. Or, simply come for the movie at 7:00.

Feel free to bring friends, family, salads, beverages, and/or a nosh, but no popcorn please!


Hakafa's film group meets once a month, September through May, at 7:00 p.m. on a Saturday evening at the Hakafa offices at the North Shore United Methodist Church (213 Hazel Avenue, Glencoe) to screen and then discuss films of Jewish interest.
 
Each month, the group meets beforehand at 6:00 p.m. for a light dinner.
 
All are invited to join Hakafa's film group for dinner and the movie or just the movie.  Members should feel free to bring friends, family, and a nosh!
