Description

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED FROM AUGUST 4 AND RESCHEDULED TO AUGUST 17 DUE TO WEATHER. 

IN PERSON at the LYMAN ESTATE, 185 Lyman Street, Waltham

Join us for a screening of the beloved 2007 Israeli film, recently adapted for Broadway. 

The Alexandria Ceremonial Police Orchestra arrives in Israel to perform in Petah Tikva but a mix up at the airport leads them to the remote town of Beit Hatikva. Stuck there until the next morning's bus, the severe, repressed band leader Tawfiq (Sasson Gabay, Shtisel), gets help from an enchanting local woman, Dina (Ronit Elkabetz, Gett) who offers to put them up for the night. Throughout the night, the band and the townspeople develop a fleeting, but sincere, camaraderie through quiet happenings and confessions. Sweet and funny, the film portrays simple kindness and humanity. Ronit Elkabetz, who died 5 years ago this year, shines as Dina.

Sponsored by the Consulate-General of Israel to New England.

*Masks are required inside the mansion at the Lyman Estate and are optional when outside.*
