Special Treat: Restored "Children of Paradise" returns to the Castro!

A former member
For those of you who missed the  one-time showing of the digitally restored version of Marcel Carne's "Children of Paradise," there's great news!  The Castro Theatre, in SF, will be bringing this masterpiece back -- and this time, it's for a whole weekend: May 19-21. Since we've already done this one, I won't be hosting an event, but if anyone would like to volunteer to organize a show, I'll be happy to set you up.

Sat.-Mon., May 19-21 : Children of Paradise (Les enfants du paradis) (1946) 
The greatest, French, romantic epic ever -- arguably, the greatest French film ever! A sweeping romance, set against the theatrical and criminal demi-mondes of 1840s Paris. Presented at the Castro, in a new, restored, 4K digital print, made from the original negative. 'Children' has never looked or sounded this good! A rare second chance to catch this masterpiece on the big screen. If you missed it back in March, don't miss it, again!!!
