 Hoo boy. Life in South Auburn is getting crazier and crazier. I didn’t know that Caterpillar, Volvo, and John Deer made equipment that huge! Now, as you all know, I’m not opposed to the gas companies because I believe, essentially, that ship has sailed and people have signed contracts and it’s over. But this week tried the patience of even those of us who aren’t hostile. This morning, wedged between huge earthmovers and having sat in “traffic” (which consisted of me and about thirty huge trucks of various makes and models) for over fifteen minutes, and feeling as if my Toyota and I were very, very small, I just about jumped out of my car screaming at the top of my lungs every unladylike epithet I could think of at the flagman who, obviously nearly comatose, was impatiently waving me forward when trucks were blocking both lanes. Luckily, the dimwitted fellow (who might be perfectly nice in his real life but had obviously succumbed to the effects of breathing too much South Auburn road dust) actually looked in the direction he was pointing me toward, realized his mistake and slowly turned the sign to read “Stop” once again, saving him from a crazed redhead in her late sixties leaping out of her car, rushing him and hitting him resoundingly on the head with his stupid sign!  

     Sigh. I guess you can tell from the above paragraph, that they are tearing up the roads in the Auburns, pummeling them to dust and are going to repave wider, smoother roads. Or so the story goes. As with all else with this gas business, we’ll see what we see. This week, though, seeing the pipelines stretching over once pristine fields, seeing the dust rolling from destroyed roads so that we look like something from the Middle East, it’s hard to remember that one day, providing our water isn’t destroyed, this will all be put back, that the gas lines will be covered and seeded and hard to detect. Right now, this very day, I wish we could turn back the clock. Double sigh.
     So, for all of you who get surly because I don’t bring in enough indies and foreign films during the year, I am bringing in Woody Allen’s “You Will Meet A Tall, Dark Stranger.”   This is vintage Allen. Love never works (except when it does), everyone is doomed to wishing for that which they cannot have, men long for other women, women long for other men, they mostly crack jokes along the way and some go quite mad. I love Woody Allen films, because even when they’re not up to par I think they’re very funny, with his depressed and skewed way of looking at life. So, you art film lovers, do try to attend because it will only play for one week. 
     The other movies remain the same for a final week. We still have the rousing and inspirational Secretariat, the totally fun RED and the extremely icky Jackass 3D. Next week we will be bringing in another funny, but raunchy male comedy called Due Date starring Robert Downy Jr., plus we’ll have Megamind in 3D for kids (and the grown-ups who bring ‘em) and then the following week we’ll hopefully be opening Unstoppable (this one’s for you, Bob Kulow) and then on to Harry Potter. I have my heart set on a week or two of Hereafter, Clint Eastwood’s take on life after death, and a few other films we haven’t been able to get first run. So it’s going to be a busy, busy November! (Isn’t that so fun???)
     And don’t forget our showing of Rocky Horror Picture Show and then Saturday night the three totally cool horror films in a row so that those of you who would like to spend Halloween being scared almost to death will be able to do so at your very own hometown movie theater!
     Have a wonderfully spooky Halloween!
     See you at the Dietrich.

Live at The Dietrich

Erica Rogler

It is hard to believe that November is almost here! October just flew by, and before we know it, we’ll be busy getting ready for Thanksgiving. We especially enjoy this time of year at the Dietrich. In November some of the year’s most highly anticipated blockbusters are released. From Unstoppable, to Due Date, to Megamind, to Tangled and to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, we will definitely have a full schedule of great Hollywood entertainment. So round up your friends and family and come out the Dietrich for a good flick and some of the best popcorn around.

If you are more interested in taking a class, we have some great offerings for you and your children in November. For kids, Amy and Steve Colley will be teaching their popular Trash to Treasures class series. In these classes, students will have fun learning how to create 3-D collages out of recycled household items. In past Trash to Treasures camps and classes, not only did the students end up with amazing pieces of artwork, but they also learned to use their creativity and imaginations to explore the endless possibilities in the world around us. This class series for children ages six to twelve years old will be held on Saturdays, November 13, 20, Dec. 4 and 11 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. For little ones, Amy will offer Preschool Art Trash to Treasures classes on Thursdays, November 11, 18, Dec. 2 and 9 from 12:00 - 12:45 pm, and her Mommy and Me class series will be held on Fridays, November 12, 19, Dec. 3 and 10 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. Admission is $35 per child for a four-class series. Call 570-996-1500 for more information or to register.

For adults and teens, a new series of Pottery & Sculpture classes will begin at the Dietrich with Steve Colley. Students of all levels of experience will be able to work on potter’s wheels and learn hand-building and sculpting techniques. They will also be able to learn glazing techniques. Classes will be held on Mondays, November 8, 15, 22, and 29 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Admission is $60 for the four classes and all materials are provided.

In addition to Pottery and Sculpture classes, the Dietrich will be offering some intermediate jewelry making classes. Esther Harmatz will be teaching Jewelry Making: Embellish with Silver Clay. In this workshop on Monday, November 22 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., students will learn how to use silver clay to create borders and decorative encasements for two fused glass pieces. Esther is also offering an Intermediate Fused Glass class on Mondays, November 15 and December 6 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. In these classes, she will teach participants how to create channels, embed wire designs and bails, make frits and paint designs in glass. Admission to either jewelry class is $60 and all materials will be provided. Call the Dietrich at 570-996-1500 to register.

We will also be offering a free Yoga Journeys: Yoga for Kids presentation at the Dietrich in November. Under the direction of certified Hatha yoga instructor Melissa Russo, children and their families will learn fun and easy yoga poses, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques. Join us on Saturday, November 13 at 11:00 a.m. to start your yoga journey. Melissa is a wonderful teacher and offers yoga classes for adults at the Dietrich every Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
