May 15 – 21


Tomorrow (Friday) we start a run of Gomorrah (above), the gritty Italian mafia film that won the Grand Prize at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival. Shall We Kiss?, a French romance (well, sort of!), starts on Friday, May 22.

Pray the Devil Back to Hell has its last screening tonight at 7:30PM.

We continue our month of classics to see with Mom on Sunday at 2PM with The African Queen (1951) starring Katharine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart and directed by John Huston. It's a wonderful movie and is absolutely appropriate for ages 8 and up. I've only seen it once — with my Dad when I was about 10 years old, so I'm looking forward to seeing it again, this time on the big screen. We're also fortunate to have a rare restored print of the film, so do join us!
