All programs are offered free of charge by the Dorothea van Dyke McLane Association to anyone in the community with an interest in Italian culture.

Doors open at 4:45 pm. Seating is limited. Due to fire regulations, when seating capacity has been reached we regret that we may have to turn people away from that evening’s program.

Programs are followed by informal get-togethers where one can chat with old and new friends, and taste dishes and offerings brought by participants.

There is no reception after a movie, however a few people usually get together at a local restaurant or coffee shop. All movies are in Italian with English subtitles.

In case of cancellation of a program due to inclement weather or unexpected reasons, please check this Web site or call Dorothea’s House for information.
