On October 8, 2015, we hosted over 200 local Belles at The Roosevelt Collection theatre for the Chicago premiere of Big Stone Gap, a film written and directed by Adriana Trigiani '81. The movie was based on Trigiani's bestselling book of the same name.

After screening the film, Belles were treated to a lengthy half-Q&A, half-stand-up comedy routine by Trigiani where she talked nostalgically about her time at Saint Mary's, shouted out her classmates, and discussed the challenges of adapting a book to the screen. While mingling and enjoying cappuccinos and tiramisu (a nod to the main character's Italian heritage), Belles had an opportunity to get copies of Big Stone Gap as well as Trigiani's new book, All the Stars in the Heavens, signed by the author.
