The movie, filmed in Meriden in 1989, will have a showing on-screen.

It’s a story about a Vietnam veteran nicknamed “Megs” (Robert DeNiro) who visits war buddy Dave (Ed Harris) at his home shared with his sister (Kathy Baker).

The home on-screen is on Lindsley Avenue. The movie is based on the play Strange Snow, written by Cheshire resident Stephen Metcalfe.

Richard Couture will field comments and questions after the 1.5-hour film.

Presenter: Richard Couture, Meriden native, Vietnam veteran, and an extra in the film
