BURN: One Year on the Front Lines in the Battle to Save Detroit

BURN,” a new film from producer/directors Tom Putnam and Brenna Sanchez, and executive producer Denis Leary (“Rescue Me”).

Filmmakers Putnam and Sanchez were given unprecedented access, and their documentary closely tracks the lives of the firefighters over the course of a full year.  The film was culled from over 1,000 hours of interviews and additional footage, much of it shot during actual fires, inside blazing, smoke-filled buildings. Wednesday, 7:30 p.m. Port Jefferson Cinema.

Let's Discover Nature

The “Let’s Discover Nature” Hour is a special time for both parent and child to discover the wonders of their natural world together.
