Welcome to BCB’s 300th podcast in 18 months on Bainbridge Island!
Podcast: What’s Up Bainbridge:
European film and supper series starts Jan 26th at Art Museum
In this podcast, the two co-founders of the Edge Improv – Frank Buxton and John Ellis – describe the upcoming series of European Films they are curating and presenting at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art (BIMA).
Like the last series, each film screening will be preceded by a light supper at the Museum’s Bistro cafe and dining space, and followed by a discussion and Q&A with film experts.
Tuesday January 26th will be opening night for the Winter Tuesday night film series. It’s been preceded by two others over the past 12 month: a series of comedies, and film noir.
Frank and John plan to start on Jan 26th with a French silent film, “The Italian Straw Hat” (1928, Rene Clair), with live musical accompaniment on the keyboard.
On Feb 2nd, it’s “Gold of Naples”, an exquisite look at 1954 Naples by Vittorio DiSica, with a segment that stars Sophia Loren as a pizza baker who loses her wedding ring. This is reportedly DiSica’s favorite of his films and is a rarely screened treat. On subsequent Tuesday evenings, Frank and John plan to screen:
- “Closely Watched Trains” (1966, Czechoslovakia)
- “Wild Strawberries” (Ingmar Bergman, 1957, Sweden)
- “Tight Little Island” (the delightful English comedy, 1949)
- “Cinema Paradiso” (1988, Italy).
Individual tickets (as well as series tickets with six for the price of five) are available at the film series page of the Museum website.

Our overall radio project — called Bainbridge Community Broadcasting or BCB — is brought to the island by local nonprofit Sustainable Bainbridge.
Expect stories — all with a local focus — about artists, musicians, local food, farming and gardening, island nature, outdoor activities, community issues, local history, local economy, and the schools.
Our BCB project spans the generations — seniors, other adults, teenagers. And our current group of more than 30 active adult volunteers is supplemented by the Bainbridge High School Radio Club that BCB helped to establish and equip. BCB will continue to seek local volunteers — with or without prior radio experience — to fill openings for interview hosts, studio techs, audio editors, trainers, schedulers and social media power users.
Contact us to inquire about opportunities for you to play a role in local community radio!
And for more information about opportunities for volunteers or how to receive BCB’s radio shows, contact Barry Peters, the BCB Project Manager, at BCB@BestofBCB.org.
When contacting BCB about your potential interest as a volunteer, please let us know the community topics that are of particular interest to you and any relevant experience or background that you may bring to BCB. Or simply fill in our contact form for potential volunteers.
