Once again, we are going to try and see Seraphine on November 22 late afternoon. This movie takes the prize for most delays (3) but it really is showing beginning next week. I hope you can make it.
1. Saw the Japanese movie "Departure" at the Art Museum this weekend. What a heartfelt movie. Very well done and having seen 4 of the 5 Oscar nominees for best picture, this one deserved its win.
2. Nov. 13 marks the 50th anniversary of the infamous ?bust? in Cleveland Heights history: Cleveland Heights Police raided the Heights Art Theater (later the Centrum), shut down an evening showing of "Les Amants," (The Lovers) and arrested manager Nico Jacobellis - all because of a three-minute love scene that would seem tame by today?s standards.
The Cleveland Heights Historical Society announces a free screening of"Les Amants" at the Lee Road Library, along with the opportunity to hear an accompanying lecture, enjoy free popcorn and not worry about getting arrested and having your case taken all the way to the Supreme Court, which is what happened to Jacobellis.
The event takes place Nov. 13 in the Brody/Nelson meeting room at the Lee Road Library. The lecture is at 6:30 p.m.; the movie begins at 7 p.m. The event is freehttp://www.heightsobserver.org/read/2/11/lecture-and-showing-of-les-amants-on-nov-13-
Mrs. Goldberg is this Thursday at 6 at the Cedar Lee.
La Dolce Vita is this Sunday afternoon.
The General is next Thursday at 6 at the Capitol Theater.
