Bus Trip!
Fall Foliage Trip to the Finger Lakes
Wednesday, October 13, 2010
The bus will leave from the Dietrich Theater in downtown Tunkhannock at 8:00 a.m. and will return about 6:00 p.m.
Guided by: Jane Frye, naturalist
Admission: $100
Join us on a fall foliage trip to the Finger Lakes region. First we will traverse the Cornell Campus in Ithaca and visit the Johnson Museum of Art and the McGraw Chimes Tower, about a mile of moderate walking. After a sumptuous Tuscan buffet at the Banfi Restaurant in the Statler Hotel, we will walk the 1.5 mile round trip flat trail to the base of Taughannock Falls, then drive to the rim to view the entire canyon from afar. This is the highest waterfall in New York State, even higher than Niagara Falls.

 Brrrr. This is day three of rain and chill and I finally caved and turned on the heat in the house. My old farmhouse is perfectly warm and cozy, but the dampness had crawled into its bones. The cat immediately jumped atop the ancient radiator which was merrily gurgling away (it takes its job of keeping us all toasty quite seriously), curled up and purringly fell asleep. On days like this my father would most likely have built a fire in the fireplace and, provided it wasn’t a work or school day, we would have curled up to read or talk basking in the warmth of the fire and Pappa’s good company. It was all right, back then, for children to just sit and read or daydream or simply gaze into a crackling fire and not have to accomplish something that very minute. In so many ways I feel sorry for the children of today - - under so many pressures from such an early age. True, they have so many more material things than we ever had, but how many times of simple peace and love and security come into their lives? How lucky we were back then, with our hand-me-down clothes and our home made  meals and our tiny houses, filled with security and parents who loved us and books to read and woods to walk in. All the material goods in the world can’t hold a candle to the blessings we had in our childhoods. 

     So, we have a really wonderful movie for you this week. No one can outdo Disney when they decide to tell a whopping good story! And Secretariat is at the top of the great story list!  It’s the tale of a horse who is magnificent in its ability and a woman who bucks the prevailing conventions of the time and together they go on to win the Triple Crown, one of horse racing’s most elusive prizes. Do come to see this one. It’s a grand adventure starring the lovely Diane Lane and the intense and hilarious John Malkovich. It’s an evening of grand entertainment and you’ll find yourself cheering wildly for both horse and lady alike!
     We also have Life As We Know It (isn’t it soooo cool having four screens????), a little comedy starring Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel about two young people who are left the awesome responsibility of raising their God-child. Up until that point they have little in common, don’t even like each other and would rather never see each other again. But we all know that in Hollywood those are requirements for true love to happen…slowly…one step at a time. It’s a perfect comedy for everyone, from my age on down to teens. It’s fun, sentimental and has enough silliness to keep you laughing.
     Then most likely the final week of Legend of the Guardians, in 3-D (really gorgeous 3-D, by the way) and also the last week, of Wall Street 2 which is very good, albeit not as good as the first. Still, it’s well worth seeing.
     And Sunday afternoon we have a grand cultural event - - Jay Steveskey will pay tribute to the great Spanish composer, Segovia. Considered to be the father of modern classical guitar, Segovia’s music is both magical and evocative of the era of Spanish Romanticism. And Jay Steveskey is a master of the classical guitar. We’re so lucky to have him come and share his enormous talent with us.
     So, another film festival has come to a close. What a grand time it is, to see all these movies that we would not otherwise get to see and to think about them for many weeks to come. The biggest hit of festival was Get Low, starring Robert Duval, followed pretty closely by Mao’s Last Dancer which was, I thought, even better than I had anticipated. The Kids Are All Right remained a good strong contender for top of the list as did The Girl Who Played With Fire. And I loved Winter’s Bone, although it paints a devastating picture of the lives of the poor deep in the heart of the Ozarks. And so it goes….
     See you at the Dietrich!

Live at The Dietrich

Erica Rogler

Andres Segovia (1893 - 1987) is considered to be the father of the modern classical guitar renaissance. He dedicated his life to elevating the guitar and its music to the concert stage. According to Segovia, that when playing you should “lean your body forward slightly to support the guitar against your chest, for the poetry of the music should resound in your heart.” To me that quote indicates this great Spanish master’s love for music and his instrument. During my years working at the Dietrich I have met many talented and passionate artists and musicians, including classical guitarist, Jay Steveskey, who always wows us when he performs at the Dietrich. Like Segovia, he too shares in the desire of promoting classical guitar. Jay is an active chamber musician, teacher and soloist, and we are so glad that he will be back at the Dietrich this Sunday, October 10 for another amazing concert - A Tribute to Segovia. Join us at 3:00 p.m., as Steveskey pays tribute to Andres Segovia by performing some of the most beloved solo guitar masterpieces from the “Segovian” repertoire. You will not want to miss this magical experience in the not too distant era of Spanish Romanticism. Tickets to the concert are $10 each and can be purchased at the door or reserved in advance by calling us at 570-996-1500.

 In addition to music, the Dietrich will also provide several offering for children and adults in the fields of visual arts and crafts this month. For young artists, Amy and Steve Colley will be starting a new Native American Art series. In these classes, students will learn about Native American culture and folk art as they create masks, story necklaces and totems. Little ones are invited to take Mommy & Me classes with parents or caregivers on Fridays, October 15 through November 5 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:15 p.m, or they can also attend a preschool class on Thursdays, October 14 through November 4 from noon to 12:45 p.m. Children ages six to twelve will be able to take a more advanced version of this class on Saturdays, October 16 through November 6 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am. Admission to any of these Native American Art class series is $35. Call the Dietrich at 570-996-1500 to register.
For adults, the Dietrich’s own multi-talented Sarah Sidorek will be a teaching a jewelry-making workshop called Create Your Own Earrings. On Saturday, October 9 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., students will learn how to design earrings using sculpey ultra light clay and then embellish them with beads. She has brought in a variety of earrings she has made using this technique and they are gorgeous. They don’t even look like they were made from clay. Admission is $20 and all materials will be provided. 
Then on Monday, October 18 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., instructor Jane Jones will be back to teach students how to make a wire bead crocheted necklace. Being comfortable with the crochet chain stitch is helpful. Beginner and advanced students are welcome. If you would like to see a sample of a wire bead crocheted necklace, visit our website <> or stop by our office. Call the Dietrich at 570-996-1500 for more information or to register.
Oh, and don’t forget you still have today and tomorrow to catch Dietrich Theater film festival movies. We would like to thank our countless volunteers, amazing audiences, tireless projectionists and great staff for making this festival terrific. We are so grateful.
