The life and legacy of Robert Sadlon, founder and co-owner of The Moviehouse in Millerton, was celebrated on July 13.

Sadlon passed away on May 15 following a battle with brain cancer. Given the passion he dedicated to the movie theater alongside his wife, Carol, it seemed fitting that the celebration of his life was held at The Moviehouse. Popcorn was popped and soda was poured into cups as if it was just another day at the movies, and the two theaters on the first floor were promptly filled with many well-wishers from all walks of life

The village community was sad to learn that Robert Sadlon, founder and owner of The Moviehouse, passed away on Wednesday, May 15, following his battle with brain cancer.

Though a resident of Lakeville, many will recognize Sadlon as the driving force behind the village of Millerton’s landmark theater. Envisioning the potential behind the two story 1903 historic Grange Hall building in the village, Sadlon and his wife, Carol, took the lead in transforming the former “boarded up, single-screen porno house in 1977 with a ‘For Sale due to the Lack of Customers’ sign on the front door into a state-of-the-art four screen digital exhibitor,” according to the GoFundMe page set up for Sadlon’s Elevator Pitch for The Moviehouse.

From that transformation came almost four decades’ worth of thriving business in the village with screenings of countless films and National Theater Live productions, midnight premiere events, art exhibitions on screen and in the theater gallery, select screenings with post-screening discussions, community film events and much more.

"The goal is for our readers to hold onto this special issue, Towns & Villages, all year long and to refer to it whenever they need essential phone numbers or web addresses for town services.

Yes, of course this information is also online for all the towns in our area. It’s just sometimes a little easier and faster to look it up in our special issue than it is to find it on the internet (even if, like me, you spend most of your day at a computer).

But the phone numbers aren’t the only content in this issue. We also do a feature story each year on the towns in our coverage area, focusing on some service or tradition shared by every town. This year, that service is sports and recreation."

In the last two years, many film crews have made their way to the Hudson Valley. Just last May, the Inn at Pine Plains welcomed a film crew that spent a few weeks shooting scenes for the 2018 romantic comedy, “Christmas Camp.”

This past July, The Moviehouse in Millerton presented a special screening of the feature-length indie film, “Double Belgium,” which was partially shot in Amenia and featured local residents as extras.

And then there are the blockbusters. Given its box office record of $1.2 billion during its opening weekend, local fans of the Marvel universe will be excited to learn that locations in Dutchess and Ulster Counties were featured in the latest and last installment of the Avengers films, “Avengers: Endgame,” which opened in theaters on Friday, April 26. According to reports last December, the production team behind “Avengers: Endgame” spent two days filming at the Staatsburg Historic Site near Rhinebeck and one day filming at a private property in Esopus, Ulster County. Additionally, it was reported that the film featured the local Hudson River shoreline.

Grace Year is a fellowship program that invites young adults to live in “intentional community” in rural New York, to serve in positions with local agencies, studying spirituality, leadership and justice.

Since last August, four young people have lived together and worked together, four people who at the beginning of the project were strangers. They are from very different places, with different tastes and ideas, but they have come to live comfortably together in the white house with the red door next to the Grace Church and rectory.
