Ithaca Motion Picture Project presents its 3rd annual Movie Under the Stars! -- Bring a picnic, lawn chair and blanket and join us in Taughannock Falls State Park for a big screen showing of the Wharton brothers' 1916 silent comedy The Lottery Man. Based on the hilarious hit Broadway play by Riba Johnson Young, the movie features Thurlow Bergen as a star college football quarterback who proposes a lottery with himself as the prize in marriage. The famous athlete finds himself in love with the one woman who wishes that he'd never started the lottery. The movie cast includes Oliver Hardy in an unusual film role.
The screening is FREE and the movie is FAMILY FRIENDLY!
Taughannock Falls State Park has a $5 parking fee.
Originally designed by award-winning architect Todd Zwigard and constructed by John Fuchs of The Widget Factory, this colorful Zoetrope shows how sequential images, when spun, create the illusion of movement. The Zoetrope was initially installed at the Greater Ithaca Activities Center (GIAC) as part of IMPP's 2011 countywide multimedia exhibition, Romance, Exploits & Peril: When Movies Were Made in Ithaca. Visit the Sciencenter where you can spin this bigger-than-life zoetrope and watch a movie appear before your very eyes!
