The series begins on Monday, June 7, with The 49th Parallel, a 1941 British drama and wartime propaganda film starring Laurence Olivier, screening at 8 p.m. at the Katharine Corner Theatre on Spring street in Vineyard Haven. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. . The'Ma lm s:3/in ya d F-ilm S ietyI is presenting the series in conjunction with the Martha's Vineyard Museum as part of its ongoing exhibition in Ed- gartown, Those Who Serve: Martha's Vineyard and World War II. Mr. Hackney is a former provost of Princeton, president of Tulane and University of Pennsylvania, and chair- man of the National Endowment of the Humanities In The 49th Parallel, filmmakers Mi- chael Powell and Emeric Pressburger show their ideas of why the U.S. should join the Allied fight against the Nazis. A group of Nazi navy men are stranded on Canadian soil (viewers have just seen them refusing food and water to a group of torpedoed British seamen and so there's little sympathy for the castaways). The 49th Parallel was the biggest grossing film in the UK in 1941, and the biggest grossing British fill to date in the US. It is rated PG and runs 105 minutes. Admission at door is $8, or $5 for members, with all proceeds to benefit the museum. Every Sunday from 10am--2pm Visitors and Families are Welcome! Luminaries available at the event. Reviving Island Spirits, Business With Preaching and Other Idols By REMY TUMIN A spiritual awakening is coming to the Vineyard this weekend. And Squire Rushnell, author, comedian and part- time resident of Edgartown, is poised to prove it through a five-day event dedicated to inspirational message, comedy and song at this year's Inspi- ration Weekend. "Our whole quest was to do some- thing that would lift the spirits of this entire Island at the beginning of the season,, Mr. Ruslmell said in an inter- view this week. "There will be stories and music that will grip your heart. You can count on that." Dr. Charles Stanley, pastor and founder of In Touch Ministries, is the keynote speaker for the weekend which is expected to draw more than 1,000 people to the Tabernacle in Oak Bluffs over the course of five days. Dr. Stanley's sermons are broadcast in every nation in the world via radio and television, including 204 television stations in the United States. Dr. Stanley and others are hoping to reach a broader audience this year."I'm going to connect with this community the way I speak with every community, I speak the truth," Dr. Stanley said in an interview yesterday at the Charlotte Inn in Edgartown, where he is staying. "It's the power of the truth that changes people." Inspiration Weekend was originally created by Mr. Rushnell and his wife and performance partner, Louise Du- Art, in 2009. Now in its second year, the expanded five-day event kicks off Friday night with an inspirational mes- sage by Dr. Stanley and runs through Tuesday evening, featuring music, com- edy and prayer. After the success of Inspiration Weekend last year, Mr. Rushnell and Mrs. DuArt traveled to Atlanta to per- sonally invite Dr. Stanley to be the featured speaker at tiffs year's event. "We were prepared to whittle back our expectations," said Mr. Ruslmell. "So when he said,'I think I should stay for five days and not leave until I am moved to leave,' we were absolutely thrilled." Of course the roots of revivalism are strong on the Vineyard; 150 years ago, the Tabernacle was home to religious revivals that were held in tents pitched in circles in the oak groves there. "We felt that it was once a place that was so spiritually alive, but we also know that it is spiritually dormant today," Mr. Ruslmell said."I think part of our quest is to awaken the dofrnancy that there is in a lot of Islanders." Billing it as a nondenominational event, the organizers of Inspiration Week iid say'that it iS'n0t tefigkm-cen-; tered, but God-centered. The Rev. Jeff Winter, pastor at the Faith Community Church of Martha's Vineyard, which is The Lighthouse Challenge: Five Stops in One Saturday The Vineyard hosts its third annual Lighthouse Challenge on Saturday, June 12, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. In cooperation with the United States Coast Guard, the Martha's Vine- yard Museum, and The Trustees of Reservations, lighthouse enthusiasts are encouraged to visit all five Island lighthouses on Saturday. The Lighthouse Challenge includes the Edgartown and East Chop light- houses, the grounds of the West Chop lighthouses, the Gay Head Light in Aquinnah, and Cape Pogue Light- house, reachable only by an over-sand vehicle. Information about Challenge tickets, dining deals and discounts is online at a sponsor, said he is expecting a diverse crowd from around the country. And he hopes the good deeds that abound in the Vineyard community will inspire others. "I think it's important to be able to give," Mr. Winter said. "It's important for them to hear about what the com- munity organizations are doing to help ... to lift these people, and to have the people from off-Island give back to something here." To that end, money collected at the offering during the Sunday morn- ing service will be donated to Camp Jabberwocky and the Red Stocking Fund. "Life is tough, life is hard," Mr. Win- ter added. "I want people to feel in- spired that there's hope in their daily lives." Dr. Stanley's In Touch Ministries is cosponsoring the $150,000 event, which will include performances by Ameri- can Idol finalist Mandisa, Grammy- nominated group Avalon, bluegrass legend Ricky Skaggs and the Kentucky Thunder, and Star Search finalist Mara Getz. And entertainment and inspiration are not the only benefits expected this weekend. Mr. Winter said lo- cal businesses were consulted about which dates were best for them, and they agreed that the weekend after Memorial Day could provide a wel- come boost. "From the chamber of commerce perspective, it's a win-win thing," Mr. Winter said. But Mr. Rushnell and Mr. Winter said the real beneficiary of Inspira- tion Weekend is the Island community. "There are a lot of hurting people on this Island," Mr. Rushnell said. But there's still hope. "The energy is there [at the Tabernacle]; there's a spiritual energy that is in that land that is going to come awake."
