If you live in Anne Arundel County, Maryland (or anywhere, really), I’d like to invite you to tonight’s film in our Great Movies series, The Elephant Man (1980) directed by David Lynch. (This was a film we had to reschedule due to inclement weather back in January.) The movie starts at 6:15pm, but come early for the cartoon and a door prize. (We love to give stuff away!)
At each of our movie events, my co-worker Julia and I begin by talking about the history of the film (a very interesting one in the case of The Elephant Man) and some behind-the-scenes stories. After the screening, we talk about the legacy of the film, why it’s still important today and allow the audience to ask questions or comment on the film.
And then next week, Thursday, April 5 at 6:30pm, Julia will introduce, screen and discuss Akira Kurosawa’s masterpiece Rashomon (1950).
The series takes place at the Severna Park Library, located midway between Baltimore and Washington D.C. The movie is free and so is the popcorn. We would love to see you!
