Actress Ruby Dee will be at Alvin & Friends restaurant, 49 Lawton St. tonight from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., where a trailer for a new documentary, “Life’s Essentials with Ruby Dee,” will be shown.
The event is a fundraiser for the film project, and it costs $100 to get in. That includes cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
The movie is produced by Dee’s grandson, Muta’ Ali. For more information on it, visit: http://rubydee.lifesessentialsdocs.com/.
Dee was the wife of actor Ossie Davis, who died 2005. The theater in the New Rochelle Public Library is named for him.
