THE SUNSET SERIES AT SWIFT HOUSE INN

THE SUMMER OF SCORSESE / CLASSIC FILMS DIRECTED BY MARTIN SCORSESE
EACH THURSDAY / JULY 8 – AUGUST 5

MNFF presents The Sunset Series at Swift House Inn / Summer of Scorsese, an exciting new social event in partnership with Swift House Inn and Town Hall Theater. Every Thursday for five weeks, beginning July 8 and ending August 5, MNFF will screen a classic film by master director Martin Scorsese outdoors under the big tent at Swift House Inn. Screenings will begin at sunset. Prior to each screening, starting at 6:30 pm, Swift House Inn will be offering attractive picnic dinners and drinks from Jessica’s, the Inn’s superb restaurant, on the expansive lawn behind the main house [or under the tent should it rain]. Come out, see your friends, enjoy a casual meal and adult beverages together and take in a film by one of the greatest directors of all time. See you at the Summer of Scorsese!
