Movie talk live from Ridgefield's Prospector Theater

HAN Arts & Leisure with Sally Sanders, Steve Coulter and the “Reel Dad,” Mark Schumann, take a look at movies, the arts and other events going on in Fairfield County, Connecticut, and Westchester County, New York — and the surrounding area.

Each Thursday at 2 p.m., they appear live on live.HAN.Network with the people who brings arts to our area. You can also watch all the past HAN Arts & Leisure shows at our on-demand link.

This week, with Ridgefield's Prospector Theater as a backdrop, Mark, Sally and Steve discuss Oscar nominations and movie awards season. They also remember actor Alan Rickman, who died last week.

The Prospector Theater is a state-of-the-art first-run movie theater with gourmet popcorn, a bar and an event venue.  The Prospector also has a deeper purpose and an  mission: to provide adults with disabilities opportunities for meaningful employment and vocational training.

According to the theater, audiences young and old will be delighted by quality programming – first-run movies, documentaries, sing-alongs, classics, theme nights – all while they help support the Prospector’s mission, and help change the lives of underemployed members of society. At Prospector, audiences will come to understand what smart, valuable, and dedicated employees adults with disabilities are when given the proper structure, training and support.
