Classics Calendar Update

We have finally solidified the bookings for the second half of this series and I would like to take a moment to unpack my weathered bugle and herald the arrival of two phenomenally fantastic feature films. We are happy as punch and pleased as clams to present Robert Zemeckis's dizzyingly hilarious blend of noir and cartoons, the madcap Who Framed Roger Rabbit; and the Coen brothers' waggishly withering Barton Fink. Both films will be joining Billy Wilder's Sunset Blvd. under the three-week Notoriously Hollywood heading. It's going to be a doozy.

I would also like to formally unveil our brand new sponsor for this twelve-week juggernaut, Cinema Books, the wonderful specialty shop located directly between the Metro and our other weekly giveaway partner, Scarecrow Video. We truly cannot thank these businesses enough for their gracious generosity in support of our humble enterprise. Give them all of your money.

Finally, I would like to take a moment to thank everyone that turned out Wednesday night to make Swing Time our most popular Fred Astaire feature to date. Thanks so much for kicking off this series in such a splendid fashion. We hope to see you all in the coming weeks.

This is GREAT news. I love Roger Rabbit. And Barton Fink is nothing less than my favorite Coen film. You guys rule.
