Movies with a Message

The popularity of our short films suggests that when we have the opportunity, we might add a second short to our program.  And, let’s face it, some shorts are just too good to be ignored!


7:00 p.m. – The Final Show  – An elderly lady has just “crossed over” and now has a very important decision to make.  The starring role is played by 89-year-old Marion Ross (Happy Days).

7:15 p.m. – The Bake Shop Ghost  –  The spirit of a town’s legendary baker refuses to vacate the premises, even when the right person comes along.

7:35 p.m. – Slipaway – Adam is a homeless musician.  When he agrees to sell his keyboard to an eccentric elder, he soon finds himself trapped on a sailboat with a very feisty lady.  The film

has a rather controversial ending as both the elder and Adam stretch out to reach their dream.

9:10 – 9:30 p.m. – Time for wrap-up and discussion.

We believe that good experiences are even more fulfilling when shared with others.  To this end, our objective each month is to present films of substance in a living room setting and to provide an opportunity to discuss with friends.  Please join us on Friday, December 14th, at 7:00 p.m. in the Conference Room.  As usual, all are welcome.  Pizza will be provided.  Popcorn optional!  Contributions will be gratefully accepted, all of which will go to UU Danbury.  (For more information on these films and on the service from which we make our selections, please check the website at
