Arts council to screen `Mostly Martha' on Aug. 27

The Carroll County Arts Council will show Mostly Martha as its monthly movie at 7 p.m. Aug. 27.

Martha is the head chef of an upscale restaurant. Not much of a talker, Martha expresses herself through her extraordinary cooking. She presides over a pristine kitchen with obsessive attention to detail and precision.

Her life is turned upside down when she must care for her 8-year-old niece. Add a flamboyant assistant chef, and the recipe is one for a new life.

The 2002 film, which is rated PG, is in German with English subtitles.

Tickets, available in advance, are $5 for adults, and $4 for children younger than 12 and seniors over 60. Arts council members receive a $1 discount.

The Carroll Arts Center is at 91 W. Main St., Westminster.

Information: 410-848-7272.
