On Friday, October 17, 20 years after the release of the indie film-turned-phenomenon starring Julia Roberts, those associated with bringing the production to Connecticut will partner with its director, one of its leading actors and the Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism in a 20th anniversary celebration.

Moses. Following the reception is an 8:00 p.m. screening of Mystic Pizza at Olde Mystick Village Arts Cinemas featuring an introduction by both Petrie and Moses and an exciting newsreel retrospective.
