Join us at The Last Picture Show
The West Orange Film Society holds an excellent classic film festival each year. The AMC Theater, where it is held, is one of those theaters that serves food and beverages to you at your seat if you are so inclined. Feel free to indulge.
I am providing you with the full schedule below, in case you want to see other films in the series, but the #1 choice in our poll is The Last Picture Show. I might schedule another, but not many of you answered the poll. Go to the poll, and let me know which other movie you want to see most: Poll
Rotten Tomatoes says this, "Produced by Hollywood iconoclast BBS Productions, film critic-turned-director Peter Bogdanovich's 1971 film pays homage to Hollywood's classical age as it chronicles generational rites of passage in Anarene, a fictional one-horse Texas town. Making excellent use of its period and setting, Bogdanovich's small town coming-of-age story is a sad but moving classic filled with impressive performances."
Stephen Whitty, or another critic or cinephile will lead a discussion after the film. I have scheduled our meetup for 1:30, and the screening will begin at 2:00. Ticket prices are $10.00 ($7.50 for members of the West Orange Arts Council)
If you are near West Orange, you might want to buy your ticket at the box office in advance. Tickets are also available on Fandango.
I don't want anyone, especially if you are driving from afar, to be disappointed, so if advance purchase is not feasible, just arrive early!
