Film Screening, 'The Longest Game'

  • Southern Vermont Arts Center Southern Vermont Arts Center Drive Manchester, VT, 05255 United States (map)

Meet Hal, 87; Charlie, 87 and Maurie, 87. Three of a group of friends who gather every day at one p.m. in the village of Dorset, Vermont to play a game called "paddle tennis". They have been playing together for years. THE LONGEST GAME follows their friendship and documents their wisdom, the secret to their vibrancy. As paddle tennis becomes a metaphor for the 'game' of life, THE LONGEST GAME unearths the universal force that connect all seemingly- different human beings: Love. 

(Students Free / $10 per Family - All Tickets Sold at Door )

The screening of this film is dedicated to Charlie Ams and all of his paddle tennis partners who went before him.  Sponsored by Chip, Chris, Jeff and Debby in his memory.
