FILM: Dude, This Film is Epic!

Adult Programs

FILM: Dude, This Film is Epic! 
Second Saturdays at noon, June—September

You know what rules? The one time in Lawrence of Arabia when Omar Sharif shoots that one dude for drinking his water. Totally harsh. Or in Spartacus, when the slaves start shouting “I’m Spartacus”. That was sweet.

Short films? Get that weak sauce out of here. Long films rule!

Join staffer Chris Boerger for monthly films that are as lengthy as they are cool. Epic!

June 11: Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
A brazen British soldier loyalties shift in Arabia during WWI. Won seven Oscars. Ranked #7 in AFI’s Top 100. Starring Peter O’Toole.

July 9: Spartacus (1960)
A slave leads a revolt against the Roman Empire. Won four Oscars. Directed by Stanley Kubrick. Starring Kirk Douglas and Laurence Olivier. 

August 13: Gone With The Wind (1939)
A complicated debutante seeks love in the American South during the Civil War. Won 10 Oscars. Ranked #4 in AFI’s Top 100. Starring Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh.

September 10: La Dolce Vita (1960)
An Italian writer struggles to find love and happiness. Considered director Federico Fellini’s best film.

All movies are shown in large-screen projection, and start promptly at noon.

Films are 3-4 hours long. There will be free snacks and an intermission.
