newportFILM presents a screening of Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story on the Redwood Lawn. Hollywood star Hedy Lamarr was known as the world's most beautiful woman – Snow White and Cat Woman were both based on her iconic look. However, her arresting looks and glamorous life stood in the way of her being given the credit she deserved as an ingenious inventor whose pioneering work helped revolutionize modern communication.
The Newport Music Festival will present husband and wife team, guitarist Rupert Boyd and cellist Laura Metcalf, who will perform a program featuring music by Fauré, Bach, Falla, Piazzolla, Satie and more.
Join us on Friday, June 16 at 6:30 pm for Bloomsday - a celebration of the anniversary of James Joyce's prolific novel Ulysses. This celebration will include actors and actresses in period costume reading excerpts from the piece, accompanied by musicians.
Free and all are welcome to join in on the festivities.
In honor of George Washington's birthday, on February 22 at 11:30 am the Artillery Company of Newport will be holding a salute on the Redwood lawn by our statue of George Washington. So make sure to drop by for this fun salute to our first president!
