NEW YORK---Sacred dance from several traditions, a Hollywood premiere, panels on religion and politics, and “an evening of music and chocolate” are among the events scheduled for the three-week grand opening festival of the Sheen Center for Thought and Culture, a new arts center on Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village run by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York. The festival kicks off on Sept. 14 with the New York premiere of the film “Captive,” starring Kate Mara and David Oyelowo. [link]
