Exhibit: Peter Jackson's Landscapes
9:00 AM - 9:00 PM

art sampleThroughout the month of December we are proud to present Landscapes by Peter Jackson 

Peter Jackson is a Landscape Architect who lives in Milton and works in park and open space planning and design. He chose Landscape Architecture because it allows him to exercise creativity, a passion for beauty in nature, and a commitment to serving community and the public good. Peter has been taking photographs of landscapes and nature for over forty years. His subjects include the environments in which he works or travels. Favorite themes include early morning light, reflections, and contrasts in texture. In this exhibit, photos of his Landscape Architecture work include a tagline of his personal motto “Make the World a Better Place…Everyday.”

Peter will also provide an opportunity for exhibit visitors to identify scenes around Quincy to be entered into a drawing. Two entries with all correct answers will have an opportunity to select photos from the exhibit.

Mr. Jackson will be at the exhibit from 6:00-7:00 on Thursday Dec. 4 and Tuesday Dec. 9 to discuss his work.

Feature Film: A Most Wanted Man
6:45 PM - 8:55 PM

movie stillThe late Philip Seymour Hoffman gives his final screen performance in this taut yet labyrinthine adaptation of John le Carré's 2008 spy novel. In the years immediately following 9/11, Gunter Bachmann (Hoffman) is a counterterrorist expert based in Hamburg who operates as a rogue agent. He specializes in bringing down jihadists, and as the story opens, he begins to fixate on a Chechen immigrant who befriends an American social worker (Rachel McAdams) who grows convinced of his harmlessness and sets about persuading Gunter of the same. Meanwhile, Gunter becomes aware of a palpable and imminent threat to national security that involves future jihad activity, and devises an ingenious plan that he hopes will both extinguish the threat and provide amnesty for Issa.

"Although the cast is uniformly fine, Hoffman shines in a role that demands not showmanship, but a kind of complexity and contradiction that can be rendered only through the kind of dull character details that he excelled in, accumulating them from the inside out." - Washington Post

Directed by Anton Corbijn. Starring Daniel Brühl, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Theatrically released in 2014. 121 Minutes; Rated R for language.

2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

movie stillAfter making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership. Now they don't have to just crack the case - they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship. If these two overgrown adolescents can grow from freshmen into real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them.

"A hugely enjoyable shambles. It’s a comic deconstruction of that most useless of Hollywood artifacts — the blockbuster sequel — that refuses to take itself seriously on any level." - Boston Globe

Directed by Chris Miller. Starring Channing Tatum, Ice Cube, Jonah Hill, Nick Offerman, and Peter Stormare. Theatrically released in 2014. 110 Minutes; Rated R for language throughout, sexual content, drug material, brief nudity and some violence.

Feature Film: Guardians of the Galaxy
6:45 PM - 8:55 PM

movie stillBrash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand — with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.

"It manages the trick of being both an unironic sci-fi action-adventure flick and a zippy parody of one. It’s exciting, funny, self-aware, beautiful to watch and even, for a flickering instant or two, almost touching." - Washington Post

Directed by James Gunn. Starring Bradley Cooper, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Vin Diesel, and Zoe Saldana. Theatrically released in 2014. 121 Minutes; Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and for some language.

He specializes in bringing down jihadists, and as the story opens, he begins to fixate on a Chechen immigrant who befriends an American social worker (Rachel McAdams) who grows convinced of his harmlessness and sets about persuading Gunter of the same. Meanwhile, Gunter becomes aware of a palpable and imminent threat to national security that involves future jihad activity, and devises an ingenious plan that he hopes will both extinguish the threat and provide amnesty for Issa.

"Although the cast is uniformly fine, Hoffman shines in a role that demands not showmanship, but a kind of complexity and contradiction that can be rendered only through the kind of dull character details that he excelled in, accumulating them from the inside out." - Washington Post

Directed by Anton Corbijn. Starring Daniel Brühl, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Theatrically released in 2014. 121 Minutes; Rated R for language.

Rescheduled: Historic New England: Salem, 1692- season of the witch
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Gallows Hill Cover with Rory O'Brien's Face

The Salem witch trials of 1692 is one of the most infamous, and least-understood, episodes in American history. Rory O'Brien, author of the novel Gallows Hill, lays out the story of what happened, separating fact from fiction.

Salem's licensed tour guide Rory O'Brien, author of the recently published novel, Gallows Hill (as well as four previous books on Rhode Island history) will present this fascinating and seasonally topical program, as well as have copies of his novel available to purchase afterward. Rory O'Brien grew up in New England, surrounded by books, history, and the long shadows of Poe, Hawthorne, and Lovecraft. He spent months haunting the streets of Salem, speaking with tourists, townies, witches, cops, and business owners. He spent a ridiculous amount of money in kitschy tourist attractions, read every guidebook he could get his hands on, and took every walking tour in town ... all in the name of research.

Rescheduled from previously scheduled date in October.

Feature Film @North Quincy: Guardians of the Galaxy
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

movie stillBrash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand — with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.

"It manages the trick of being both an unironic sci-fi action-adventure flick and a zippy parody of one. It’s exciting, funny, self-aware, beautiful to watch and even, for a flickering instant or two, almost touching." - Washington Post

Directed by James Gunn. Starring Bradley Cooper, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Vin Diesel, and Zoe Saldana. Theatrically released in 2014. 121 Minutes; Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and for some language.

They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth's dominant species.

"More than a bunch of occasionally thrilling action sequences, emotional gut punches and throwaway jokes arranged in predictable sequence. (Dawn) is technically impressive and viscerally exciting, for sure, but it also gives you a lot to think, and even to care, about." - The New York Times

Directed by Matt Reeves. Starring Andy Serkis, Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke, Judy Greer, Keri Russell, and Kodi Smit-McPhee. Theatrically released in 2014. 130 Minutes; Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and brief strong language.
