9/8/2016 - Southbury Film Commission Announces October Movie Of The Month Club Selection

MEDIA RELEASE: September 8, 2016, Southbury, CT


The Southbury Film Commission (SFC) is pleased to announce its movie selection for the next meeting of the Movie of the Month Club, Wednesday, October 5th at 7:00 p.m. at the Southbury Plaza Hotel, formerly known as the Southbury Crowne Plaza, 1284 Strongtown Road.

Anyone interested in movies is invited to join members of the SFC to share in an evening of socializing, playing film related games, sampling refreshments and desserts and communicating ideas and opinions on the selected monthly feature film.

Based on feedback from guests at the August meeting, the SFC has selected “Sully” as their October film. The movie stars Oscar winner, Tom Hanks as Chesley Sullenberger, the reluctant hero who glided his plane to an emergency landing on New York’s Hudson River in 2009.

All 155 passengers and crew members survived the harrowing ordeal that became known as “The Miracle on the Hudson.” The famed pilot, however, went on to face an investigation that threatened to destroy his career and reputation.

The film is directed by legendary actor and Academy Award winning Director, Clint Eastwood and also stars Aaron Eckhart and Laura Linney.

Those planning to attend and join the discussion can see the film at their leisure and at the movie theatre of their choosing, any time after the film opens nationwide on September 7.

“Our monthly discussions seem to be very popular and have been well attended,” said SFC Chairman, Joel Wald. “We are thankful to the businesses who have offered us space to hold our gatherings. Members of the film commission are very happy to offer a fun night out to film lovers in our community.”

Please RSVP as soon as possible, as space fills quickly, by calling (203) 262-6213 or emailing the SFC at To learn more, visit the SFC at and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
