Monday May 26, at 7:00 p.m Hollywood Goes To War In Cape May, NJ

Film Society Presents “Hollywood Goes to War”

(Cape May, NJ) The Cape May Film Society’s Memorial Day film program will be a great addition to your holiday plans–after the parades and picnics. The program is entitled “Hollywood Goes to War,” and the featured speaker is Hollywood actor/screenwriter JC Stinson, who says if you think the program will be all about combat, you’d be mistaken. “There aren’t as many combat scenes as there are clips demonstrating what makes a film truly remarkable,” he says. “There are classic elements of these films like the rogue enlisted man, the brutal training, the outsider. And we will leave plenty of time for discussion after the clips are presented and before the reception.” Stinson will present the most memorable moments from some of the greatest films ever made, and some work that’s off the beaten track as well.

“Hollywood knows war,” says Corbin Cogswell, Chair of the Programming and Membership Committee for the Society, “and the films honoring the heroes are among the most important and entertaining movies ever produced. And we’re planning a wine and cheese reception after the retrospective for members of the Society. This will be a perfect time to mingle with others who love the movies as much as you do.”

The retrospective will be held at the Cape May VFW on Congress Street. “That’s is certainly the most appropriate place for many reasons,” says Cogswell. “It is were we launched the Cape May Film Society in June 2007, and we definitely want to honor those who have served in the military by bringing this particular show to their lodge.” The program will be held on Memorial Day, Monday May 26, at 7:00 p.m., at the VFW with a wine and cheese reception to follow.

The Cape May Film Society hosts the Cape May Film Festival, which is New Jersey’s premiere film festival dedicated to the support and presentation of creative, challenging, groundbreaking, film/video works by New Jersey filmmakers. The Society is also the region’s leading educational and cultural resource for youth and adult learners interested in all facets of the cinematic experience.
