OLYMPIA, WA — The 26th Olympia Film Festival at the historic 772-seat single-screen Capitol Theater begins Friday Nov. 6 with the unreleased-on-video 35mm feature “Nothing Lasts Forever”, starring Zach Galligan and Bill Murray. Other 35mm prints of unreleased-on-video films include Ken Russell’s “The Devils” in a rarely screened LPP print, Paul Newman’s adaptation of Ken Kesey’s “Sometimes a Great Notion”, the 1933 “Alice in Wonderland” starring Cary Grant, Gary Cooper, and W.C. Fields, and the 1932 Charles Laughton / Bela Lugosi classic “Island of Lost Souls”.

A 3-D print of Andy Warhol’s “Frankenstein” will be introduced by star Udo Kier and we also celebrate the 20th anniversary of All Freakin' Night with an all-35mm print extravaganza featuring “Starchaser: The Legend of Orin in 3-D”, “Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2”, “Rolling Thunder”, “Street Trash”, and “A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2”. And much much more! Check out the festival website for more info!

Oh, boy! Most of those horror movies are pretty bad. Interesting that they’re available on 35mm film though!

Without having seen them, yet having looked at the advertising pictures, I can agree.
