Dear friends,

Welcome to the website of Christ Church Cathedral.

The most important thing that I can tell you about our Cathedral is that it is marked by Easter joy – as a parish family, and as the mother church of the Diocese of Western Massachusetts. ...more.

'Mondays To Remember'

The Summer Film Festival at Christ Church Cathedral

On four successive Monday evenings, the annual Cathedral Summer Film Festival takes place – popcorn, soft drinks and a stimulating movie in the air-conditioned Library at 6:30 PM each Monday. Here’s the lineup:

Monday, July 21 – 'North by Northwest' (1959, unrated)

Referred to as 'The Hitchcock picture to end all Hitchcock pictures' and also 'The first James Bond film', this Alfred Hitchcock directed movie was nominated for three Oscars. Starring Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint and James Mason, it tells the story of a mild mannered insurance agent pursued across the United States by mysterious agents. The challenge: spot Hitchcock’s two cameo appearances.

Monday, July 28 – 'The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain' (1995, PG)

Set in Wales in 1917, this British film stars Hugh Grant and Tara Fitzgerald. When a small Welsh town learns that its 'mountain' is really only a 'hill' (i.e., slightly short of the required 1,000 feet in height), the local vicar decides to do something about it. The challenge: translate the Welsh word 'be’chi’ngalw'.

Monday, August 4 – '12 Years a Slave' (2013, R)

In 1841, a New York State free African American man named Solomon Northup was kidnapped and sold into slavery. Finally set free, Northup wrote a memoir of his experience. This film – which won three Oscars, including Best Picture – tells Northup’s story. It stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt.

Monday, August 11 – 'Frozen' (2013, PG)

Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale 'The Snow Queen', 'Frozen' has been called the best Disney animated feature film and musical ever created. It won two Oscars: Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song. Our Mission Team played 'Frozen' for the children of Jimani in the Dominican Republic this summer.
