KLRU Q Saturday Night at the Movies – 12/29

KLRU-Q’s Saturday Night at the Movies presents a full-length feature film every Saturday night, plus extra content that gives the evening an exciting spin. Each film explores the work of legendary actors and actresses through many important films from their careers. Here is a peek of what this Saturday has in store:

8:00pm – A Walk in the Clouds
A married chocolate salesman (Keanu Reeves) agrees to pose for a day as the new husband of a pregnant vineyard heiress (Aitana Sanchez-Gijon) in postwar California. Cast: Keanu Reeves, Aitana Sanchez-Gijon, Anthony Quinn.

9:45pm – Oregon Wine: Grapes of Place
In the 1960s a new breed of pioneers began arriving in Oregon’s Willamette Valley determined to grow Vitis vinifera, the fine wine grapes of Europe. They were told it couldn’t be done and were amply warned that western Oregon was too cold and wet for vinifera to flourish. But they came anyway with a dream of producing premium wines – in particular, Pino Noir – made from the delicate red grape of Burgundy, France. The pioneers’ risky experiment created a new industry in Oregon and changed the world of wine forever.

10:45pm – Chesapeake Wine Country
Few phrases have quite as much allure for the would-be traveler as “Wine Country”. Two words which summon up images of sunny vineyards, cavernous barrel rooms, informal yet artful hospitality, and above all select hand-crafted wines waiting to be tasted. Above all, Wine Country is a place filled with the mystique of the grape and the wonderful alchemy that changes fruit into something approaching art. For the thirsty traveler in Maryland, every point of the compass leads to Wine Country. It’s there in the Eastern Shore, Southern Maryland, the Central Counties and in Western Maryland. Clusters of wineries straddle wine trails, laid out so that a wine tourist can drive the entire circuit in an easy relaxing day. The wines of Maryland await discovery. And the hard working wine makers and grape growers of the Free State are eager to share with you the romance of visiting Wine Country.
