The Grandview Library showcases some of the most renowned and beloved filmmakers in cinema history with this series of movies, each one indicative of its maker's unique style.

Mondays, December 8-February 2 (except 12/29) at 6 pm.

12/8: The Searchers (1956)
John Ford reunites with his favorite actor John Wayne in what is considered one of the finest and most important westerns ever made.

12/15: Citizen Kane (1941)
Orson Welles pulls off the ultimate triple play by directing, co-writing, and starring in this cynical look at one man's rise to wealth and power.

12/22Ginger and Fred (1986)
Two of Federico Fellini's favorite actors, his wife Giulietta Masina and avatar Marcello Mastroianni, play former dance partners reunited. (Note: Not THAT Ginger and Fred!)

12/29: OFF

1/5: Day for Night (1973)
Francois Truffaut’s look at the day-to-day headaches - and joys - of making a motion picture, from one of the bona fide experts on the subject.

1/12: Red River (1948)
Classic filmmaker Howard Hawks has John Wayne and Montgomery Clift lock horns during a cattle drive across the western frontier.

1/19: Imitation of Life (1959)
Celebrate Martin Luther King Day with this extravagant, and typically melodramatic (for director Douglas Sirk), examination of racial issues in 1950s America. Starring Lana Turner

1/26: Dreams (1990)
One of the Japanese master's last and most personal works, Akira Kurosawa takes us on a picturesque journey into his own dream life. Worth the price of admission to see director Martin Scorsese as Vincent van Gogh.

2/2: The Age of Innocence (1993)
See what happens when geniuses of literature and cinema intersect in Martin Scorsese's adaptation of Edith Wharton's tragically beautiful novel. Starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Daniel Day-Lewis.

Monday, February 23, 7 pm

Cobb. Find copies in our catalog and join the discussion!
