It's that time of year again - the time when we're reminded of all the bliss, ecstasy, contentment (and, yes, uncertainty, bizarreness and even misery) that go arm-in-arm with romance. And what better way to celebrate this roller coaster of a holiday than to go to the movies and see the power of love beautifully and cathartically magnified on the big screen?
Join us for some of the greatest films to ever celebrate love in its many forms. Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman may always have Paris, but we’ll always have CASABLANCA; the classic wartime romance celebrates its 75th anniversary this year. BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S brings Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard together to one of Henry Mancini’s greatest scores. MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO is less amorous but just as sentimental; this animated tale of children befriended by a magical creature is sure to warm your heart - or for something really different, Cinematic Void will be showing HOLLYWOOD CHAINSAW HOOKERS and FRANKENHOOKER.
Series compiled by Grant Moninger and Gwen Deglise. Program notes by Beth Hanna and John Hagelston.
