Come down to the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library auditorium at 1 p.m. March 18 for a film festival featuring Twin Sisters. The film tells the story of twin German sisters, Lotte and Anna, separated at a young age. After the death of their parents, they are “divided” between quarreling distant relatives, one being raised in the Netherlands and the other in Germany. As well as a national difference, they also undergo a sharp class differentiation. Lotte is raised by a rather affluent, middle-class intellectual family in Amsterdam, Anna by a poor Catholic peasant family in a backward area, where in the 1930s the Nazi Party seems to offer young people the only chance of social mobility.

Though the MTA is making an effort to add more trains to the schedule, that doesn’t ease the parking situation, which is operated not by the LIRR, but by individual municipalities in each town.
