Revue Weekly Newsletter – 2018, May 18

This weekend we’re delighted to present the Czech That Film lineup for a second year, featuring five of the best new films from the Czech Republic. On closing night (Monday, May 21) we will be joined by Barefoot star Tereza Voříšková for a post-film Q&A.

Next Thursday, Designing the Movies presents Jean Harlow and a full cast of stars in the MGM classic Dinner at Eight, preceded by a conversation on fashion and feminism in Pre-Code Hollywood between series host Nathalie Atkinson and Bata Shoe Museum senior curator Elizabeth Semmelhack.

Tickets for many June events are now available, including some ’80s classics (The Karate Kid, Fright Night and Teen Wolf Too – the latter two on 35mm!), anime favourites (an encore screening of Akira, as well as Miyazaki’s Spirited Away), the launch of new podcast We Really Like Her with a screening of Cher and Winona Ryder in Mermaids; Silent Revue and Designing the Movies season-closers (Tod Browning’s The Show, American Graffiti by George Lucas); as well as a screening of The Marx Brothers in Duck Soup.

For a complete listing of this week’s films, check out our schedule.

See you at the movies!
