Purple Rose of Cairo 30th Anniversary

Sunday, October 4, 2015: The Piermont Civic Association and Piermont Chamber of Commerce have combined forces and will launch their very first joint project. The Purple Rose of Cairo, a film by Woody Allen, was filmed in the Village of Piermont 30 years ago. The impact of this project changed the look and feel of Piermont forever.

With an exhibition of photographs by Sally Savage documenting the film, and a very special public art installation by Kristina Pfadt Burns, this celebration starts at 1pm. A roundtable discussion will be held at the Piermont Village Hall at 3pm, bringing together those who worked on the film, and sharing the memories of those who witnessed how the film impacted the Village.

At 6pm, there will be a champagne toast and the film will be shown.
