Last night’s outdoor sing-a-long screening of The Sound of Music made me love living in Baristaville. People, old and young, filled the gardens and came together to sing along with Maria, Captain von Trapp and the von Trapp children.
Organizers from Montclair International Film Festival even walked around the many picnic blankets and lawn chairs to pass around a microphone to brave singers. But there was no need to feel shy, because every one sang. The gardens were filled with singing, laughing and clapping.
MIFF will offer more outdoor movies as part of its Cinema Montclairismo to be screened on Church Street. Up next, on June 30 is Apollo 13 and then Back to The Future on July 29.
