Last Minute Weekend Suggestions

The Brooklyn Historical Society, 128 Pierrepont Street (corner of Clinton) will present a screening of Nancy Buirski’s film, The Loving Story, a love story about a couple whose wedding set the stage for the Supreme Court’s decision, in Loving v. Virginia, that struck down statutes prohibiting interracial marriage.

The show begins at 3 p.m. Saturday, and there will be a discussion with Buirski afterward. The event is free with museum admission, which is free for BHS members; for non-members it is $6 for adults, and $4 for seniors over 62, teachers, and students 12 and over (college students must have ID; children under 12 are free).

Don’t forget Theater 2020’s Comedy of Errors, with performances tonight (Friday) and Saturday at 8:00 p.m., and Sunday at 3:00 p.m. More details at the linked post.

Finally, weather permitting, get a view of an astronomical double treat, a “Supermoon” and the eta aquarid meteor shower tomorrow (Saturday) evening. (Image: NASA.)

    “The Loving Story” was at the Queens Museum of the Living Image, not at the Brooklyn Historical Society as I found out when I
    arrived to see the film. So glad I didn’t travel but a few short blocks.

    Melanie: my sincere regrets for not having read the BHS website announcement carefully enough. My only plea in extenuation is that it’s been a very busy week, and I was rushing to get something posted late at night. I wondered what was going on when I walked by BHS earlier and saw a craft fair there instead of a movie screening.
