Vanishing Bees

When: Wed., April 20 2011

In case you haven't gotten the memos, honey bees are going belly up around the world. Why should you care? Only because these busy little guys perform an essential function in pollinating our food crops: No more bees in the fields equals no more apples, cherries, or zucchini on your table. Like all the best natural disasters, there are plenty of theories about the cause but few definitive answers. Also, there is a movie, narrated by Juno's Ellen Page ("Gee, she's getting so big!") and showing tonight at 7 p.m. at the Chagrin Cinemas. Presented by Cleveland Cinemas and Whole Foods Market, the flick kicks off the Do Something Reel film festival, which features six provocative films that focus on food systems, environmental challenges, and how we have likely screwed up the world. Chagrin Cinemas is at 8200 East Washington St. in Chagrin Falls. Tickets are $6 and can be snagged at the door or online at clevelandcinemas.com.
