The Week Ahead: Friday, January 12 through Thursday, January 18, 2018
January 12, 2018
Last week’s insanely cold weather has finally – but not soon enough for some – mellowed. That said, with temps hovering in the 20s and 30s, it’s decidedly still winter here on Martha’s Vineyard, with indoor activities and community events dominating the Week Ahead. As happens every year, we are now down to two movie theaters, Entertainment Cinemas in Edgartown and the MV Film Center in Vineyard Haven. Lucky for us both theaters offer great films and comfy seats. This week The Film Center, in addition to its usual schedule, will be offering a documentary, The Opera House, on Sunday at 1 pm. Sounds like the perfect fare for a wintry Sunday afternoon! Plowing ahead into the long holiday weekend celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy, Island organizations keep us entertained with music, movies, workshops and more. Enjoy the Week Ahead!
