Description: A special chance to see the wondrous, playful movies featured in the recent film "Hugo" (based on the critically acclaimed book "The Invention of Hugo Cabret"), made in the early 1900s by former magician Georges Méliès. Méliès was the wizard of early cinema. His silent films, set to recorded music, featured his magical creations of spacemen, fairies, magicians, and mermaids. (Georges Méliès, France, 1902, Digital; approx. 80 minutes).
Family Film-goers can stop at Indie Food and Wine before or after the film for an afternoon treat like the "indie lunch box," a meal that features a New York State cheddar grilled cheese sandwich on multi-grain bread with an apple and house-made hot chocolate ($6).
