The Marco Island Center for the Arts Third Annual Art Flicks program, featuring foreign, independent and “art” films, has begun. All films are shown at 10 AM at Marco Movies, located at 599 South Collier Boulevard in Marco Island. Admission is free, and the program includes lively discussions concerning the films and the art of film.
The theme for 2016 is “Food, Glorious Food.” Upcoming films are:
February 16, 2016: “Kings of Pastry.” Contenders seek France’s highest honor in the sublime art of patisserie, employing vast amounts of sugar, butter and eggs- not to mention adrenaline- to create gorgeous, fantastical, delicious creations.
March 1, 2016: “Babette’s Feast.” Not only is this one of the great films about food, it is also a story from the human heart that holds the viewer with the beauty of the here and now. It speaks to all the senses.
The Art Flicks program is made available in large part due to the generosity of Marco Movies and Nick Campo. “The Art Flicks program was such a huge success the past two years,” commented Hyla Crane, Center for the Arts executive director, “the committee had a real challenge raising the bar for 2016. I think they were successful!”
Marco Island Center for the Arts is located at 1010 Winterberry Drive, Marco Island, and is open from 9 AM to 4 PM, Monday through Friday. It has a full-time gallery and gift shop.
