Another film you can catch Monday, January 26th is “Evan’s Gate.” It is a film written, edited, and produced by Newburgh native, Edward Crawford. The movie is about a widowed father whose young son who becomes infected Lyme disease. The question is, how far will this father go to help his son? The movie is a little home-made looking, but considering the budget-which was none, Crawford has done a good job.
The film will show at 8:00 pm Monday at the Downing Film Center, 19 Front St., Newburgh. Tickets are $6.
