September 22: GardenShare has teamed up with Cinema 10 to birng Fed Up, a new documentary from Katie Couric, at 7:15 pm at the Roxy Theater, 20 Main St., Potsdam. Upending the conventional wisdom of why we gain weight and how to lose it, Fed Up unearths the dirty little secret the food industry doesn't want you to know- far more of us are sick from what we are eating than anyone has ever realized. The truth is, only 30% of people suffering from diet-related diseases are actually obese; while 70% of us - even those of us who look thin and trim on the outside - are facing the same consequences, fighting the same medical battles as the obese among us. Tickets are $4.50 for adults, $3.50 for seniors and students.
