Tybee Post Theater presents “The Trial of the Chicago 7”:

After a quiet run through the low-profile critics’ awards, “The Trial of the Chicago 7” showed up on everyone’s radar screen earning four nominations from the Golden Globes, including Best Drama, Best Director, and Best Screenplay.

Brilliant Writer-Director Aaron Sorkin’s monumental courtroom drama is based on the infamous 1969 trial of seven defendants charged by the federal government with conspiracy and more, arising from the countercultural protests in Chicago at the 1968 Democratic National Convention. The trial transfixed the nation and sparked a conversation about mayhem intended to undermine the U.S. government.

While “The Trial of The Chicago 7” takes place a half century ago, the film’s events feel very 2020,with its backdrop of protests against the establishment, police brutality and racism.

“’Chicago 7′ is a crowd pleaser first and foremost, and in that regard it succeeds on almost every level… the energy never flags, resulting in a movie that is by turns exhilarating, devastating, enraging, and inspiring, and above all, wildly entertaining,” write one critic. Rated R

The Greening of Savannah

I, like so many of you are really disappointed that our St Patrick’s Day festivities have been canceled again this year due to COVID. Don’t get me wrong, I am a firm believer in social distancing and wearing a mask – or two, but we all need a little normalcy back.

So I borrowed this idea from a friend – let’s turn the city of Savannah green for our own little celebration. Green lights decorating homes, shamrocks bouncing off buildings, lamp posts wrapped in St Paddy’s Day green. This is just the first of February – we have time to make this go viral. We can do this. Everyone who comes to Savannah from March 1 – March 17 will smile when they see that we not only turn Forsyth Fountain green but the whole city.
