Kayenta Arts Foundation’s (KAF’s) Movie Nights at Kayenta will be showing films from the private collection of Richard Kinsman, a resident of Kayenta. Richard loved movies and had a private collection of over 2,500 films. He had hoped to hold regular movie nights as a fundraising activity for KAF as well as a time of community. However, when he learned he had a terminal illness, Richard granted his collection to the Foundation. Sadly, he did not survive to see the Center for the Arts at Kayenta completed and thus, his movie nights begin. Richard would be so thankful to see that his vision has come to life!
The movie is free and open to the public with the fun starting at 7 p.m. There will be bottled water, soda, popcorn, candy, and other concessions available for sale. Bring some cash* to make a donation to help pay for licensing and labor costs. Everyone is welcome!
February 4: Charlie Wilson’s War: A drama based on a Texas congressman Charlie Wilson’s covert dealings in Afghanistan, where his efforts to assist rebels in their war with the Soviets have some unforeseen and long-reaching effects. In the early 1980s, Charlie Wilson is a womanizing US congressional representative from Texas who seemed to be in the minor leagues, except for the fact that he is a member of two major foreign policy and covert-ops committees. However, prodded by his major conservative supporter, Houston Socialite Joanne Herring, Wilson learns about the plight the people are suffering in the brutal Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. With the help of the maverick CIA agent, Gustav “Gust” Avrakotos, Wilson dedicates his canny political efforts to supply the Afghan mujahideen with the weapons and support to defeat the Soviet Union. However, Charlie Wilson eventually learns that while military victory can be had, there are other consequences and prices to that fight that are ignored to everyone’s sorrow.
This film has been rated “R” by the MPAA for strong language, nudity/sexual content and some drug use.
April 1: TBA
*We accept cash only for concessions and donations for this event.
