Join CAS at the Laundry King at 65 Main Street, Livingston Manor, NY for a special screening of the film Shakespeare in Love (1998), featuring a talkback with programmer Bradley Diuguid. 

A riff on the origins of Romeo and Juliet blending with rich real-life details with heart-warming fiction, Shakespeare in Love is the perfect fit for Valentine's Day weekend. A young William Shakespeare (Joseph Fiennes), out of ideas and short of cash, meets his ideal woman (Gwyneth Paltrow) and is inspired to write one of his most famous plays.
