Cabin Fever to open with 'Moonlight'

‘Loving Vincent,’ a film that is painted to resemble the late artist’s works, will play this month as part of the Cabin Fever Series.

The 14th annual Cabin Fever Film Series will begin Friday with a 2016 film about a “young man’s struggle to find himself.”

“Moonlight” is told across “three defining chapters in the man’s life as he experiences the ecstasy, pain and beauty of falling love, while grappling with his own sexuality.”

The movie, rated R, will be shown at 7 p.m. Friday, and it the first of six films in the Fenimore Art Museum and the village of Cooperstown’s Cabin Fever series, which is designed to give local residents a reason to venture out into the cold night. 

The six film screenings are free and open to the public and run from Jan. 12 through Feb. 16. Venues this year include Fenimore Art Museum and the newly renovated ballroom upstairs in the Cooperstown Village Hall at 22 Main St. Snacks will be available. The Cooperstown Emergency Squad will provide snacks at the village hall, with proceeds benefiting local emergency services.

Doors will open each night at 6:30 p.m.

Film ratings vary. Captions are available for the hearing impaired for most films and audience members may request captions upon admission, according to a media release.
