///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Mountaintop removal is a method of coal mining used in Appalachia since the 1970s as an extension of conventional strip mining techniques.

The U.S. EPA writes: “Mountaintop removal/valley fill is a mining practice where the tops of mountains are removed, exposing the seams of coal. Mountaintop removal can involve removing 500 feet or more of the summit to get at buried seams of coal. The earth from the mountaintop is then dumped in the neighboring valleys.”

The impact of mountaintop removal can be devastating. Aside from grave environmental consequences, nearby homes and communities are also effected.

The U.S. EPA also writes: “Dynamite blasts needed to splinter rock strata are so strong they crack the foundations and walls of houses. Mining dries up an average of 100 wells a year and contaminates water in others. In many coalfield communities, the purity and availability of drinking water are keen concerns.”

The City of Buffalo receives power from a total of seven coal-fired power plants directly connected to mountaintop removal.

Prints and Drawings by Emma Repp

Recent Buffalo-transplant Emma Repp is kind enough to display her intricate patterned & magical prints and drawings.

Emma likes this quote: “The human mind delights in finding pattern- so much so that we often mistake coincidence or forced analogy for profound meaning. No other habit of thought lies so deeply within the soul of a small creature trying to make sense of a complex world not constructed for it. – stephen j gould”

Monday Movie Night is BACK!!!!
Mon 10.25 7:30PM
FREE screening of the spooktacular horror classic
CARNIVAL OF SOULS, directed by Herk Harvey in 1962!

A midnight-movie classic, “Carnival of Souls” was the one and only commercial feature directed by industrial filmmaker Herk Harvey on a
shoestring budget. Without the money for expensive special effects or Hollywood production values, Harvey and his crew nevertheless crafted
an unforgettable film by making the most of a few breathtaking locations, stately pacing, and a haunting tone. Harvey uses only a few
simple editing tricks and photographic effects to depict the story of a church organist lost in a world she feels disconnected from, haunted
by visions she doesn’t understand, and losing her tenuous grip on reality. The result is a horror film without any monsters or
dismemberments, but infused with a hypnotic sense of creeping dread and alienation that stays with the viewer long after the credits roll.
After viewing it, it’s not hard to imagine the influence it might have had on later filmmakers like David Lynch or George Romero.

Before the screening there will also be a special presentation from writer Marc Sommer, who interviewed Herk Harvey before his death in
the early 90s and will share some insight into the man and his work.


As always, come early to enjoy free popcorn and refreshments
