Weekly Update

Yesterday we screened "Stranger Than Paradise" and that was a lot of fun, so thanks to everyone that came and devoured the pizza. Question: Yesterday we bought one more pie than we've been getting; should we get more or is three pies enough?

Today we were going to screen some more prints, but that fell through when no one showed up. On the bright side, Sal was doing a radio interview at the time, so hopefully he said some nice things about the film society.

Next Monday we'll be watching "4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days," which should be really good. It's a critically acclaimed recent film about two students living in Communist Romania attempting to arrange an abortion. Intense!

Next week Spring Break starts on the 8th of April, so tough it out and then have fun!

Weekly Update

Next Monday (March 23rd), come on down to room 214 WEB at 6:30 PM to see "Some Like It Hot," the classic screwball comedy about two musicians cross-dressing to join an all female band after witnessing a mob hit. Free pizza and refreshments! Spread the word!

Also, in addition to our weekly Monday feature screening, Tuesdays we'll be showing celluloid prints of shorter, older films in room 220 at 12:30 PM, so check it out.

Upcoming events

Yesterday's screening of "Blue Velvet" was a lot of fun and we thank everyone that showed up. With a fully planned schedule, we'll be able to start really advertising and hopefully we can draw in even more people. I'm glad everyone liked the blue-sprinkled brownies; I'll try to bring some more fun desserts to future screenings.

Make sure to come to Thursday's B&H Tools of the Trade event. The mini trade show will be going on from 11 AM to 3 PM in Studio B in the TV/Radio Broadcast Center in Whitehead Hall. You'll want to see all the latest gear from Panasonic, Bogen, Lacie, Sennheiser, Sony, Steadicam, PortaBrace, Lowel, and more.

This coming Monday we'll be screening "The Battle of Algiers" at 6:30 PM in 214 WEB. The film is based on the true events during the 1954-1962 Algerian War against French rule and has been widely respected for its technical merits and honest portrayal of both sides of the war.

More updates

EDIT: Due to scheduling issues, we'll be moving the general meeting to Tuesday at 1:30 PM in room 214 and canceling the screening of "Stranger Than Paradise." We'll watch it another time, though. Make sure to come to the meeting to get caught up and express any opinions or ideas you have.

Be there or be square!
