Milk starts tomorrow, Friday, at 7:30PM. Rachel Getting Married has its last screening tonight at 7:30PM. Please note that due to the Oscar Party on Sunday night, the only screening of Milk on Sunday will be at 11:15AM. Thanks to all who RSVP'd to our Oscar Party — we'll see you Sunday night!

As I mentioned last week, we're happy to be able to show the Best Documentary Feature Oscar Winner from 1984, The Times of Harvey Milk on Wednesday, Feb 25 at 5:30PM. Couple this screening with Milk at 2PM or 7:30PM and then join us at Artisan's Gallery and Cafe at 9:30PM for a thoughtful discussion of these two wonderful films. Tickets for the 5:30 screening will be $4 for children and members and $6 for adults and seniors. If you're interested in helping lead this discussion (did you live in SF at that time? Are you interested in local politics?), please contact us!

This month we're doing a Foreign Film Festival for Young Audiences on Saturdays at 2PM. This week's film is the 2006 French beauty, Azur and Asmar. It's also playing at the Ritz in Philly this week, but you don't need to go all the way there to see it! We're recommending it for ages 8+. Update: It turns out we were sent the English dubbed version of the film, so that's what we'll show on Saturday. Click here to read Steven Rea's review in the Inquirer.

This Sunday at 2PM we're screening Splendor in the Grass (1961) as the last film in our month of Oscar-winning romances. Next month, we start a run of classics about Spying and Thieving.

Thanks for your support and we'll see you at the theatre!
