“Seeing these magnificent 17 on the big screen of LACMA’s Bing Theater … will be a cinematic education in and of itself for people lucky enough to experience them all. But the joy the series will create has to be tempered by sadness and worry about the circumstances that made it possible. The program is the swan song of Ian Birnie, who for the last 14 years has been director of LACMA’s Film Department but is now out of a job. For his farewell program, he’s picked an eclectic but irresistible collection of movies, all previously screened at LACMA, most more than once, some up to five times, and he has written distinctly personal program notes.”

Somerville, MA – The historic Somerville Theatre in Davis Square, one of the nation’s longest continually operating movie theaters, has announced its summer line up of Classics and Midnight Specials. Each of these movies will play on the Somerville’s big screen, in the grandeur of the theatre’s beautifully restored main auditorium. Many of the titles will be archival prints, as the theatre’s main booth was revamped in 2009 to handle the most precious of 35mm and 70mm film prints. Few realize that the booth in the main theatre is one of the most sophisticated projection facilities in New England, and here the theater presents a summer of films to take advantage of this position.
See a classic film in a classic setting!

June 19-20 Captains Courageous
