Join us TONIGHT at the Common Market in South End for a screening of I Heart Huckabees, a 1994 comedy where a husband-and-wife team play two detectives, helping others solve their existential issues with “universal interconnectivity.” The film stars Jason Schwartzman, Dustin Hoffman, Lily Tomlin, Jude Law, Isabelle Huppert, Mark Wahlberg and Naomi Watts.
The screening starts at night fall on the outdoor patio of the Common Market South. Bring your own lawn chair if you like, bring a friend, bring a date, but most importantly, ride a bike! See you there.

Bike-In Movie at South End Common Market
June 20, around 7 pm, “Stars and Watercarriers”
The documentary Stars and Watercarriers shows awesome footage of the 1973 Giro d’Italia, starring Eddy Merckx! Classic stuff, kids. Break out your vintage 10 speed, pack a baguette and some cheese and buy a bottle of wine from the friendly CM concession stand, then lay out your picnic blanket and take it all in…There’s some really drama to be seen here.
Thanks to CABA Board member Keith Sorensen and friends for putting this show together.
