PELHAM, N.Y. -- The Picture House Regional Film Center recently announced that Ryan Reynolds of Bedford, the star of the upcoming film "Mississippi Grind," will attend the 4th annual Picnic in the Park event on Saturday, Sept. 19 to participate in a Q&A with critic-in-residence Marshall Fine after the advance screening of his new film.
“We’re obviously thrilled to have Ryan Reynolds on hand for what is widely felt to be one of the fall’s top movies,” said Laura deBuys, executive director and president of The Picture House. “We are very grateful to Producer Level Sponsor Owen R.
