Our next movie night is Saturday, and we’ll be watching ParaNorman.
Update: In spite of this being one of my favorite movies, we might have to delay or cancel this one altogether. We have a kid recovering from some significant (non-emergency) surgery, and I think it’s going to take a little longer to recover than I thought. This is one of my favorite Kurosawa movies. So… Continue reading Sanjuro – Delayed, possibly canceled
Star Wars this weekend, Sanjuro next weekend!
Star Wars delayed to May 29.
We’re going to be screening the original Star Wars print from 1977. This copy was scanned from an original 1977 release print, so it’s not going to be the cleanly artificial-looking versions you see on the current releases. There’s film grain. There’s camera weave. There’s dirt hits and reel change marks. Technically this version is… Continue reading Star Wars – Delayed to May 29
Next week we will be following up last weeks’ screening of Citizen Kane with Mank.

Like Citizen Kane, this story is presented in a non-linear narrative, hopping around through the life… Continue reading Next Week: MANK
Saturday, April 24, we’re going to sit down and try to figure out why a dying man’s last words were “Rosebud”. Yes, Orson Welles’ directorial debut is going to be our presentation. This screening is part of a mini-series, as our next screening will be Manx, David Fincher’s film about the man who wrote the… Continue reading Citizen Kane
Because we all need to come to terms with our self-image, this Saturday 10 April, we will be screening Shark Tale. This was Dreamworks answer to Finding Nemo. Instead of a heartfelt story about an adult coming to terms with sadness, death and loss, we have the story of a self-obsessed teenager. Still, I have… Continue reading Shark Tale
Last year, just about all we managed to do was to do the tech run in March. And then the curtain fell. This year, we will be running again. Robin is back, and I’ve added some long-wanted atmospheric lights to the screen. We’ll probably have a tech run in a couple of weeks, and then… Continue reading Hello 2021.
Obviously, it’s a different world now than even 1 month ago. So it looks like we’re going to be closed until at LEAST July. Texas is projections put our peak hospitalizations around the beginning of May, and it doesn’t look like thinks will cool off for a while after that. And of course, afterwords we… Continue reading Probably down for a while
