Enjoy a warm drink, a brief introduction by filmmaker Doris Jacoby and a film. This is a part of a series of five films running on Thursdays at 2 pm, January 12-February 9.

Wasn't That a Time is a documentary on The Weavers, a groundbreaking folk music quartet who were blacklisted and then returned triumphantly to Carnegie Hall. It stars Lee Hays, Fred Hellerman (longtime Weston resident), Pete Seeger and Ronnie Gilbert. Hear the music you grew up with. (1981, 1h 18m)
