YOUR WEEKEND: Women on the march…

“I coulda been a contender!”

FRIDAY, JAN. 19 – Classic film screenings are – sadly – rare in New Bedford. So don’t miss the chance to catch one at New Bedford Whaling National Park (33 William Street) tonight at 7:00 p.m. Marlon Brando stars in Elia Kazan’s “On The Waterfront” in an Oscar-winning role. The film has been dubbed a “masterpiece of urban poetry” – and we certainly agree with that assessment. Shown as part of the DockUMentaries free film series with the New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center.
