Since the Labor Day Newsletter, we have some date changes/confirmations and a typo correction:
We will not screen anything during Oktoberfest – with a projected one million attendees, downtown will be a madhouse. Instead, Black Barbie will screen at the Garfield in October – Fri, Sat, Sun, 6-7-8.
Also, our apologies to guest speaker Neil Harrell for misspelling his first name.
LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN
Tuesday, September 19 & Sunday, September 24,
with post-film discussion.
John M. Stahl’s Leave Her to Heaven is steeped in film noir themes. Featuring Oscar-nominated Gene Tierney in a love triangle with Cornel Wilde and Jeanne Crain, this gorgeous Technicolor drama not only has murder and intrigue — it explores the thin line that separates love and obsession. The film offers a character study of the femme fatale at her best (and worst) and examines the consequences of all-consuming pathological jealousy.
NKU pop culture and cinema expert Dr. John Alberti will lead the post-film discussion after each screening.
One Night Only:
