We’ll admit it! We’d all really like to write a story that makes the magical journey to the silver screen. Come to Waterline Writers on Sunday, December 17th at 7 pm for a full screening of the newly released feature film Pottersville and a conversation with director Seth Henrikson, of Batavia, who turned his friend Dan Meyer’s script into a movie.
As its title implies, we’re not in Bedford Falls anymore! Starring Michael Shannon, Ron Perlman, Judy Greer, Tom Lennon, Christina Hendricks and Ian McShane, Pottersville pays homage to It’s A Wonderful Life even as it careens into modern-day scenarios Frank Capra could never have imagined, capturing the craziness of the present and reflecting the best of the past. After your private screening, find Pottersville on Amazon or Netflix – it’s a warm and fun-filled movie to watch with family & friends over the holidays!
Everyone is welcome and there is no admission for this month’s event! Donations to the Batavia Interfaith Food Pantry will be gladly accepted. We’ll have beer from Solemn Oath Brewery, wine from Bright Angel Wines, food from The Market at Gaetano’s, desserts from Limestone Coffee & Tea, hand-tooled pens from Wooden Writers and hand-constructed books from Tieri Ton! (Think last minute gifts!) We will not have an Open Mic at this month’s event.
We are still accepting submissions for Jan 21, Feb 18, Mar 18, Apr 15 & May 20. Follow Submission Guidelines at WaterlineWriters.org to be considered. Waterline Writers, 3rd Sundays at 7 pm, September to May, in the art gallery at Water Street Studios 160 S. Water Street, Batavia IL, now with elevator access.
