This Wednesday we are showing "Bugsy". New York mobster Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel leaves New York City to dip into the glamour of Hollywood, Calif., and to build up syndicate gambling rackets. Primary characters are Jewish of course, but not directly talked about. A fascinating sub plot, of course, is the rise of the Jewish Mafia in the early part of the century and Bugsy's and others part of this group.
After movie we will have a discussion about the role of the Jewish Mafia in Las Vegas. Snacks and drinks are provided. This event is free and open to everyone, donations are appreciated but not required. RSVP is appreciated, but not required.
Each month, CNT Cinema Connection hosts a movie night in our Social Hall. Our goal is to share movies with a Jewish or Israeli theme; films expressing religious, cultural and social issues, and/or are based on Jewish history or values. By sharing movies from different eras and a variety of genres (such as: comedy, adventure, documentary, thriller, romance, etc...), we are learning, laughing, crying and celebrating together.
