Cost: Free
Outdoor movie. Bring lawn chairs or blankets. Food available. Rain date, Saturday, August 23. "My Cousin Vinny" deals with two young New Yorkers traveling through rural Alabama who are put on trial for a murder they did not commit, and the comic attempts of a cousin, Vincent Gambini, a newly minted lawyer, to defend them. Much of the humor comes from the contrasting personalities of the brash Italian-American New Yorkers, Vinny and his fiancée Mona Lisa, and the more reserved Southern townspeople. The film stars Joe Pesci, Ralph Macchio, and Marisa Tomei.

Works from five photographers come together this summer at the Albany Institute. The exhibition Summer Exposure offers five different ventures into photographic vision, media, and artistic conception. Each photographer was given the freedom to select the content for his or her own exhibition. For Hoey and Fels that meant focusing on a single series, and for Blackwood, a single theme "elements of place." The content selected by both Benjamin and Jaeger offer retrospective overviews of each photographer's work. In total, the variety of subject matter and photographic media makes for an exciting summer of discovery.
