Who We Are
The Saltwater Film Society is a local non-profit dedicated to the love of film. We show films
to the public in several venues and hope to inspire the appreciation of classic film.
Events at the Strand
We have been showing films at the classic Strand Theatre in downtown Rockland since 2005.
Thursday Night Movie Club
We love watching movies at the SFS and to allow us share our favorte films we have started showing a monthly movie at the Thomaston Library. Every "last Thursday" of the month we will be showing offbeat but interesting films for everyone to enjoy.
This Month's Film
Winner of the 1993 Acadamy Award for Best Foreign Language Film
After striking responsive chord at the Berlin Film Festival, Fernando Trueba's Belle Epoque (aka Age of Beauty) went on to win 9 Spanish Goya awards and an Academy Award for "Best Foreign Film." Set in pre-Franco Spain, film stars Jorge Sanz as Fernando, a carefree, pacifistic army deserter. Wandering about the countryside, Fernando is welcomed into home of the wealthy Don Manolo (Fernando Fernan Gomez). Far from upset by the boy's AWOL status, Manolo is delighted because he shares Fernando's political philosophies. What follows is sheer heaven for the peaceloving lad, who sits smilingly on the sidelines as Manolo's four voluptuous daughters (Adrian Gil, Maribel Verdu, Miriam Diaz-Aroca, and Penelope Cruz) literally fight for his attentions.
