They Don't Make 'Em Like They Used To
So many film fests from which to choose: the AFI Dallas International Film Festival, which kicks off next week; the USA Film Festival, which this week announced its kickoff date (April 21); and now the UA 90th Anniversary Film Festival, which celebrates the anniversary of the studio created by the likes of Mary Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks and D.W. Griffith. The latter's actually a month-long celebration to be held at the Inwood Theatre, beginning April 4 and running through April 26.
Here's the schedule for the fest, which marks the first time in forever most of these films have been screened on the big screen -- and note, they're one-day-only screenings, so you miss it, you missed it. Midnight Cowboy screens April 4, followed the next day by Dr. No. On April 11, the Inwood will screen The Magnificent Seven, followed by the original Thomas Crown Affair on April 12. Raging Bull screens April 18, followed by Robert Wise's West Side Story the following day. Rounding out the event are Some Like it Hot on April 25, followed by closing-fest film Annie Hall. --Robert Wilonsky
