The fun in funeral

French Funerals-Cremations continues its irreverent but inspired series of funeral/death-based movie screenings on Thursday, Sept. 26. This month’s movie night screening will feature the 2011 film Bernie. Starring Jack Black and Shirley MacLaine, the black comedy relates the true-life story of a very likable small-town Texas mortician who struck up a friendship with a cranky-but-wealthy widow only to kill her for her dough. In the end most people in town still liked the guy. The screening will take place at French Mortuary (10500 Lomas NE) at 5pm. Popcorn and refreshments will be served. After the film, Gail Rubin, award-winning speaker and author of A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die, will facilitate a discussion of the issues raised by the film. Admission is free. To ensure a spot, however, it is suggested that you RSVP to Vicki Wilmarth at 843-6333 or
