A Taste of India is the theme for the 2012/2013 Civano Movie Nights, scheduled for the third Wednesday of the month beginning in October. Dust off your Nehru jacket or dig out your bangle bracelets, and be sure to join the movie mavens on October 17th for the first in a series of movies made in or about India.

At the end of the series, a trip to a local Indian restaurant is planned. Spice up your life with the Civano Movie Group. When: Third Wednesday of the month beginning October 17th, 6:30 p.m. Where: Civano Rotunda Schedule (subject to change): Monsoon Wedding, October 17
