Launching Metro Classics
As you can see, there's a new addition to the sidebar. We've managed to convinced the powers that be at Landmark Theatres to allow us to program and run a repertory film series this summer at the Metro Cinemas in Seattle. It's going to be a nine week series constituting a decade-by-decade survey of film history from the 1920s to the 2000s. If the series is successful (meaning if we can draw enough customers to break even) then they're going to let us continue to program rep films in the future, and possibly expand the program to Landmark theatres in other cities around the country.
So if you, or anyone you know is in the Seattle area this summer, come on out to the scenic U-District and catch some great films and help further the nationwide cause of repertory cinema.
Free popcorn for anyone who finds me and mentions The End Of Cinema!
