It's time for a club movie night again! Yessir and yes'm, our next AONE Pizza and a Movie Night is coming right up on Saturday, March 9th. Our previous screening parties have met with excellent turnouts each time, so we hope you'll join the fun!

We've got another fine movie lined up for our collective viewing pleasure — Ferrari - Race To Immortality. Here is a brief synopsis (courtesy of IMDb):

The 1950's - the iconic Scuderia Ferrari battle to stay on top in one of the deadliest decades in motor racing history. Cars and drivers were pushed to their limits, and the competition for the world championship meant racing on a knife edge where one mistake could take a life. At the centre of it all was Enzo Ferrari, a towering figure in motor racing who was driven to win at any cost. Amidst the stiff competition within his Ferrari team, two of its British stars, Peter Collins and Mike Hawthorn, put friendship first and the championship second. Ferrari: Race to Immortality tells the story of the loves and losses, triumphs and tragedy of Ferrari's most celebrated drivers in an era where they lived la dolce vita during the week and it was win or die on any given Sunday.

This movie comes highly recommended by AONE's own Bruce Murray — click here to read what he has to say. The film has been getting nothing but excellent reviews from all quarters! (Warning: There is definitely some crash footage, for the sake of accuracy.) To further whet your appetite, here's the official trailer:

We'll be setting up in Dave & Vi Pratt's living room in Dedham, MA. It's centrally located, just a mile and a half off Route 128 (I-95). This venue saves the club money and makes it easy to change the date in case of inclement weather.

Before the film, there's pizza! We'll gather around 5:00PM, the pizza will arrive around 5:30, and we'll dim the lights and run the movie at 6:00. We'll also have popcorn available to munch on during the movie, and the club will supply bottled water and soft drinks. Please note that Dave no longer makes homebrew, so bring your own beer, wine, or whatever — there's now a dedicated fridge for you to stash it in.

After the movie, we'll repair to the kitchen for coffee and desserts (contributions appreciated — please let Dave know if you're bringing something so we don't get deluged with confections!).

Finally, we'll present another set of short Alfa-oriented video subjects for any who might be interested in hanging around. We've gathered together a bunch of clips from movies (and ads) in which Alfas have appeared over the years — fun to watch! We've got several new ones since last time, but if you know of more, please send them (or links to them) to me!

Our presentations, don't forget, will all be displayed on our club's spiffy big-screen, multi-channel audio/video system for your viewing and listening pleasure.

There is no charge for members and their families, but we'll be asking a $10 donation from non-members to help defray the pizza expense. So that we know how much pizza to get, you must sign up with Dave Pratt (dave@dvpratt.com or 781-320-8208) by Friday, March 8th, at the latest. Seating is limited to 30 people and is first come, first served!

See you at the flicks!Tiny Quadrifoglio

Directions to Dave & Vi Pratt's
(See Map & Directions button above)

Teatro a Casa Pratt is located at 300 Westfield Street, Dedham, MA. Take Route 128 (I-95) to Exit 16 for Route 109 east toward Dedham. In about 3/4 mile, turn left onto Westfield (if you hit a traffic light you've gone too far). Bear left at immediate fork. 300 Westfield Street is on the left, 0.8 mile from Rt. 109, #300 (and perhaps an Alfa banner) on a tree. Parking in the driveway is limited, so squeeze in or park on the street. GPS users: Key in 320 Westfield Street rather than 300, since it's more accurate. Click here to download a printable map.
