MOVIE DESCRIPTION:

“Rio” (2011)
Directors:  Carlos Saldanha
Stars: Karen Disher, Jason Fricchione
Rated: G
Run Time: 96 minutes

Storyline:

A rare bird is kidnapped from his adoring owner, who must try to retrieve him. Along the way, the bird encounters various delightful, and some not so delightful, characters. Top notch animation, colorful visuals, and prudent voice selections highlight this animated delight. The storyline and the humor will appeal to adults and children alike, as I found myself getting a few laughs out of this one. The 3D effect is outstanding, and this is a movie for which you will want to lay out the extra expense for the 3D glasses. You don't need a babysitter tonight, as the whole family will enjoy this one.

Flint Lockwood thinks he's a genius. But none of the things he invented are things that make sense or are useful. However, he has the support of his mother but when she dies, he's left alone with his father who thinks he should give it up. When the community that he lives in is in an economic crisis because their primary source of income, a sardine cannery, was shut down, Flint decides to try his latest invention, a machine that can turn water into food. But something goes wrong and the machine ends up in the atmosphere. Later it starts raining food. The shifty mayor tries to use this as a way to help their community, but when Flint senses something wrong with the machine, the mayor convinces him to ignore it. However, as Flint predicts, chaos ensues. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

ABOUT THE MUSIC:


Hand Made Organ of John Prtljaga
The Organ was started by John in 1990 and continues to be modified to play Old Time Dutch and German Folk Songs, Polkas, and Waltzes. It has 75 Keys and started out as a Wurlitzer 65 Organ.  The Case is made of oak and now has the design of an old fashioned Dutch Street Organ.  This will be the 4th year John has made his appearance with this personally crafted instrument.


About The Kent Shindig All Stars:
String band/old-time/mountain music featuring flatfoot dancer Lori Jo Fuller of Hiram.  The Kent Shindig , one of the only regular old-time music and dance jam sessions in northeast Ohio, was started in 1997 by Chardon clog dancer and musician Laura Lewis, as a way to keep Appalachian music and dance alive in our area. Anywhere from 6 to 20 musicians will make it to the performance.  A sample can be found here:   



Downtown Kent Historical Highlights:
CITY BANK ANTIQUES: http://www.citybankantiques.com/

In August 1995, Don and Karen Barrett opened City Bank Antiques in the original, 1911 City Bank Building in Kent, Ohio. Don is an expert in the repair of American pocket watches. It was inevitable that their hobby would someday develop into a business, which Karen, a former librarian, now manages. Their store offers a variety of antique clocks as diverse as cuckoo and school house regulators to grandfather clocks and pinwheel regulators. The Barretts are proud to be official Chelsea Clock dealers, the “timekeepers of the sea” and the last great American clock company.

In September 2005, Don and Karen showcased their expanded shop which now encompasses the entire original City Bank Building and occupies more than 1850 square feet of first floor retail space. When it comes to antique pocket watches, City Bank Antiques is one of the largest retailers in the state.

The Kent Historical Society:   http://www.kentohiohistory.org

The Role of the Kent Historical Society

The role of our historical society in the community has grown over the years. We now bring educational programs to schools, businesses, and civic organizations, as well as collaborate with community groups on projects such as the preservation of our historic Pioneer Cemetery, the Main Street Kent revitalization program, and historic preservation projects in the community.

We are dedicated to documenting Kent history through artifacts, records, and documents from the people of our community, our living history.
