Cultural film benefit May 19th at Gypsy

“Magicians” will be shown on Monday, May 19 as the next movie for the Cultural Film Series presented by Gypsy Cab Company and The St. Johns Cultural Council.

Better known as “Dinner and a Movie”, the night has proven to be so popular that the sponsors have agreed to continue the series which serves as a benefit for the Cultural Council.
