Another LoHud match made in heaven: Tim Robbins and Bill Murray in ‘City of Ember’


Last week I wrote about Nyack director Jonathan Demme and Irvington actress Debra Winger teaming up, and this week we’ve got an even more dynamic trans-Hudson duo: Pound Ridge’s Tim Robbins and Sneden’s Landing’s Bill Murray. The two superstar actors will both star in “City of Ember,” a bizarre sounding flick about power outages in a fantasy world that Murray’s character governs.

Robbins’ character is supposed to be an inventor, who may or may not have the cure to the city’s power shortages. Murray plays a bad-guy politician. Normally at this point I’d make some snotty reference to “The Hudsucker Proxy” or the nausea-inducing trailer “Stardust.” But, well, I’m sure that with the combined creative powers of both Westchester and Rockland, “Ember” will be nothing like those movies. “The Life Aquatic,” maybe, but certainly not “Stardust.”

Cambell Scott comes home to Katonah tonight


Even if you’ve already missed the first two nights of The Katonah Museum of Art’s film series — which featured Jonathan Demme’s Neil Young documentary “Heart of Gold” and my favorite film of all time, “Waiting for Guffman” — the best is still to come tonight, in the form of Campbell Scott screening his outstanding 2002 film, “The Secret Lives of Dentists.”

Scott, who grew up in Katonah, will be at the museum for a post-screening Q&A session. Bonus fun fact: Some scenes from “Dentists” were filmed at the Tarrytown Music Hall and, I believe, Peekskill.

Here are the details if you want to go: 8 p.m., Katonah Museum of Art, Route 22 at Jay Street, Katonah (914-232-9555). Tickets are $15 (or $10 for museum members).
