The Dietrich’s 10th Annual Fall Film Festival also continues through Thursday, Oct. 4. Stop in to check the complete film schedule.
Across the street, Kitson and Company Gallery at Pen Corners will feature solo guitarist Lindsay Nulton. They are also featuring a beautiful totally custom built ship model of the U.S.S. Constitution in display case. They are selling it for the Tunkhannock Library and the majority of funds will go to help the library. Galley representatives are also looking to get your story on what you collect, ages 7 and up. Also hot and cold beverages will be served.
Around the corner from Pen Corners, check out the live street music at Endless Mtn Music from 6 to 8 p.m. of Clarkie of Faithful Aggression. Stepping out of his comfort zone, coming from an all-original background, Clarkie will be playing some acoustic rock from the Nineties to the present.
Several artists from the Endless Mountain Council of the Arts will have their work on display at Popcorn Etc. The goal of the Council is to act as a catalyst for generating interest in visual and performing arts. The gallery hosts exhibits of fine and decorative art as well as classes and workshops in a variety of areas.
And, speaking of art, a new show is opening this Friday at the Courthouse Art Gallery which features the work of Lake Winola artists Ben Jackson and Ali Woods Wilson. An opening reception to kick off the show will be held on Friday, from 4 to 6 p.m. while Gallery hours are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The restaurant will be BYOB and those diners bringing a Nimble Hill selection will have the $2 corking fee waived. Don’t forget to ask your server about the great selection of homemade desserts.
