The film includes 40 exclusively remastered Bowie songs and is the first film ever sanctioned by the Bowie Estate, with local access to the artists’ archives.

“See how They Run” opens. Click for times. In the West End of 1950s London, plans for a movie version of a smash-hit play come to an abrupt halt after a pivotal member of the crew is murdered. When world-weary Inspector Stoppard (Sam Rockwell) and eager rookie Constable Stalker (Saoirse Ronan) take on the case, the two find themselves thrown into a puzzling whodunit within the glamorously sordid theater underground, investigating the mysterious homicide at their own peril.

At GHI Offices on Hamilton Place

GHI Office, 1 Hamilton Place (outside) 11 am. It’s time to take stock of your garden: harvest some seeds, divide your perennials and evaluate your blank spaces. Then bring along your excess plants, divisions, seedlings, seeds, and bulbs to the Plant Swap and prepare to pick up some new plants. Also bring your surplus tools that are in good working condition, gardening books, magazines, garden ornaments, etc.
Please do not bring houseplants or invasive species such as English Ivy, pachysandra, periwinkle, Rose of Sharon — we have more than enough. Large objects that are not traded get to go back home with their respective donors.
We’ll set up at 11:00 AM and start the Swap with a “tour” of the available plants at 11:15. Please bring a card with a description of your plant. After that, everyone will get a turn to pick out a plant or gardening miscellany until everything is gone. We will go around the tables in one direction, maintaining 6’ distance. If you are a new gardener and don’t have anything for the Plant Swap, you can always garner a few tips as well as pick up some plants. We are also bringing back our Scavenger Hunt! This is a fun and engaging outdoor family activity that you can take home and do on your own. You can take home the laminated reusable sheets to look for nature items on your walks around Greenbelt throughout the seasons. One is suitable for younger kids, and one for more advanced readers.
Come join the fun at the GHI Headquarters at 1 Hamilton Place. All are welcome.
