"All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up." Chock-full of classic lines, noir style, pitch-perfect direction by Billy Wilder and an iconic performance by Gloria Swanson, Sunset Boulevard is one of the great American films. Here's your chance to see this classic the way it was meant to be seen - on the big screen. Plus, you can enjoy some wine and cheese beforehand and help raise funds for the Colony Theatre. Premiering in 1950, the film follows a struggling screenwriter (William Holden) who becomes a kept man to a fading silent film star clinging to delusions of staging a comeback. Learn More
Last Summer, 1969, Warner Bros., 95 min. Dir. Frank Perry.
Bruce Davison, Barbara Hershey and Catherine Burns star in this aggressively unsentimental coming of age story. Director Frank Perry charts the behavior (and misbehavior) of a group of teens on Fire Island whose tastes for sex, drugs, and rock and roll devolve into more sinister interests as the summer progresses. Ultimately the characters' loss of innocence mirrors that of America in the decade during which the film was made and takes place. [16mm]
Discussion following with Barbara Hershey, moderated by Larry Karaszewski.
