Monday Movie Matinee - Crazy Rich Asians
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Crazy Rich Asians - This film follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young, to his best friend's wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick's family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. It turns out that he is not only the scion of one of the country's wealthiest families but also one of its most sought-after bachelors. Being on Nick's arm puts a target on Rachel's back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick's own disapproving mother taking aim. And it soon becomes clear that while money can't buy love, it can definitely complicate things. PG - 13 / 2hr

6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Architectural Historian, Deputy Director of the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation, Christopher Wigren will offer a talk, visual presentation and signing of his recently released book Connecticut Architecture: Stories of 100 Places.  

Mr. Wigren’s book Connecticut Architecture: Stories of 100 Places, is the first comprehensive illustrated history of Connecticut architecture.

Connecticut boasts some of the oldest and most distinctive architecture in New England, from Colonial churches and Modernist houses to refurbished nineteenth-century factories. The state’s history includes landscapes of small farmsteads, country churches, urban streets, tobacco sheds, quaint maritime villages, and town greens, as well as more recent suburbs and corporate headquarters. In his guide to this rich and diverse architectural heritage, Christopher Wigren  introduces readers to 100 places across the state  and emphasizes the importance of the built environment  and its impact on our sense of place.
