Special Screening of “Halloween”!
Island 16 Cinema de Lux
185 Morris Ave
Holtsville

“Halloween” is one of the of the greatest horror films of all time. Michael Myers has spent the last 15 years locked away inside a sanitarium under the care of child psychiatrist Dr. Sam Loomis. On October 30, 1978, Myers escapes and makes his way back home to the quiet, leaf strewn streets of Haddonfield, turning a night of tricks and treats into something much more sinister for three young women. Dr. Loomis is their only hope, but will he find his shadow-dwelling patient in time?

Time: Oct. 30, 7:30pm & Oct. 31, 11:30pm

Please be aware that the “Halloween” is rated R.

George Mann Folk Concert
Saturday, November 1 at UU Fellowship at Stony Brook

Folksinger and producer George Mann will be giving a concert at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at Stony Brook, 360 Nicolls Road, at 7:30 PM on Saturday, November 1. The concert is hosted by folk music lovers at UUFSB.

A SUNY Stony Brook graduate and former leader of the Graduate Student Employees Union, George Mann sings songs from the last century of labor and social activism, and his own songs are powerful and funny takes on the state of the nation. His concerts are part sing-along, part history lesson, and he can make you shout for joy, send chills down your spine or bring tears to your eyes in the same set. After many years on Long Island, George moved to New York City in 1996 and now lives in Ithaca, New York.

George created and produced the “Hail to the Thief!” CD series, which featured such folk legends as Tom Paxton, Utah Phillips, Billy Bragg and Magpie, and his work with veterans, unions and anti-war groups has kept him on the front lines for more than 20 years. In 2010, George produced a compilation CD, “Until You Come Home: Songs for Veterans and Their Kin,” that addressed the issue of PTSD and the effects of war on those who fight them. His newest CD, “The Almanac Trail” celebrates the labor songs of Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie, and a solo CD “Portraits” will be released this fall.  More info at www.georgemann.org.

Come on down for a great night of music, fun, and community! This event is suitable for all ages. Doors open at 7 PM; suggested donation $10, but all are welcome and no one turned away for lack of funds!

The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra: Tribute to Frank Sinatra
Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts
71 E. Main St.
Patchogue
631-207-1313

3:00 PM
Tickets: $25-$65 +fee; available at www.patchoguetheatre.com, the box office, or by phone 631-207-1313

In Big Band history, the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra is recognized as one of the best all-around dance bands. It could swing with the best of them. Tommy Dorsey, “The Sentimental Gentleman of Swing”, was a master at creating warm, sentimental, and always musical moods – at superb dancing and listening tempos.

Frank Sinatra’s career blossomed with Dorsey and with Sinatra’s vocals the band became more successful than ever. Frank had often admitted that listening to Tommy helped him develop his phrasing and breathing, along with his musical taste and knowledge. Sy Oliver infused the band with a new musical spirit of a gentler version of the rocking, rhythmic sounds that he had created for Jimmy Lunceford, toned down somewhat and played with more precision by the Dorsey Band.  The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra still represents explosive and swinging Big Band entertainment at its very best.

Speaker: Mount Holyoke College President Lynn Pasquerella, Ph.D.

Free Public Lecture
Join us for a discussion on how the biology and concept of death is handled in the American health care system.
A philosopher and ethicist who has combined teaching and scholarship with civic engagement, Mount Holyoke President Lynn Pasquerella has written extensively on medical ethics, theoretical and applied ethics, metaphysics, public policy, and the philosophy of law.  A celebrated teacher, she has found time to co-teach a class in almost every semester of her presidency, with faculty in departments as disparate as Sociology, Biology, and Africana Studies. At the core of her career and her priorities is an abiding commitment to liberal education as a force for good, both for the individual and for civic society.  Manifestations of that commitment include her work as senator and member of the executive committee of Phi Beta Kappa, and her role as host of The Academic Minute, a WAMC Northeast Public Radio program, and “Difficult Dialogues: Voices from the Valley,” a public access television show.

From then on, participants will suggest and select questions at the end of each meeting for future meetings. To learn more about Socrates Café go to http://www.philosopher.org/ Socrates_Cafe.html.

Rupert Wates Trio & Toby Tobias Ensemble Live
Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts
71 E. Main St.
Patchogue
631-207-1313

7:30 PM
Tickets: $10 and include a beverage at the bar.  SEATING IS LIMITED; doors open at 7 PM.  Tickets can be purchased at the box office the day of the performance, or call 631-207-1313 to reserve tickets.

An evening of jazz inspired folk music from two international singer songwriters now living in New York.

RUPERT WATES was born in London, and has released six albums. His recordings have gained outstanding reviews and continue to be aired on college and mainstream radio all over the world. Rupert has been a full-time songwriter since 1992 when he signed an exclusive deal with Eaton Music Publishing. Ryan Moore of “AMP The Magazine” wrote that he is “more compelling, more sympathetic and more emotionally accessible than many other modern performers.”

Moving to Paris in 2001, Rupert developed his skills as a singer and performer and formed his own group. In 2005 he recorded the album ‘Sweet or Bitter Wine,’ his first as a solo artist. Since September 2006, he has been based in the USA, and since coming to the US, has won over 30 songwriting awards. His music has found a warm reception in America. The Forwardian Arts Society, in describing a recent performance, wrote, “It was as if Mr. Wates was standing at the well of humanity and drawing up the emotions and experiences of mankind to the surface where they could nourish those who partook of them from his vocal and musical instruments.”
www.rupertwatesmusic.com

THE TOBY TOBIAS ENSEMBLE is a Long Island-based band, under the direction of South African-born guitarist and composer, Toby Tobias. Their music can best be described as Modern Folk/Jazz, influenced by Funk & World Rhythms.

Born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, Toby has immersed himself in all genres of American Music of the last 50 years. He has garnered a strong following of listeners on Long Island and beyond. A graduate of the prestigious Rubin Academy of Music in Jerusalem, Israel, he continues to search for material that stays as close to his musical roots as possible while at the same time reaching for new and exciting musical universes.

The core of the Ensemble is comprised of Toby Tobias and Steve Blatt, a Huntington Bass player. Together they have strung together an impressive and eclectic array of original and popular tunes that they have performed at numerous venues throughout Long Island & NYC over the past several years. From a simple duo to a 6-piece larger Ensemble, they have found the right mix of songs, orchestration and performance ability to delight and enthrall crowds wherever they have the opportunity to perform.

John Drew Theater Lab: Wild Horses by Andrea Goldman
Guild Hall
158 Main Street
East Hampton
631-324-0806

7:30pm
This is the story of how I fell in love. How I died. And how I learned that everything is made of wood. Or so begins Wild Horses, an internal meditation externalized through the voice of a young poetic soul. Between the trash of the trailer park and the poetry, this is a story about love. With original music by Spanish composer and pianist, Dani Campos. Heavily movement focused, this minimalist, yet poignant performance piece is more of a visual poem than a play, reflecting the characters’ dire grasping at a life with some beauty inside it.
