HUDSON, NY – The Olana Partnership and Upstate Films Hudson Valley Picture Show will present HUGO for a special outdoor sunset movie night at Olana State Historic Site. Pack a picnic and enjoy this family favorite during a summer outdoor evening on Olana’s East Lawn, Friday, August 18. The evening will begin with a prescreening live performance by the Anatole Trio and concessions.
Join us for a whimsical adventure as Martin Scorsese transmutes Brian Selznick’s captivating and imaginative New York Times bestseller into an alternate universe: a creaky, magical Paris train station, where an orphan boy encounters a movie director who is about to change the world. HUGO is, “A deeply felt piece of work, something which only Scorsese could have brought to the screen” The Guardian. HUGO received 11 Academy Award nominations and was also nominated for eight BAFTAs and for three Golden Globe awards.
“I’m so happy to partner with Upstate Films for a second time this year to bring family friendly cinema to Olana” said Carolyn Keogh, Director of Education and Public Programs at The Olana Partnership. “I encourage everyone to enjoy this special movie under the stars before summer comes to a close!”
