2012 Winter/Spring Series

The 2012 Winter/Spring Cinema 100 series opens in two most eventful ways.

On Thursday, January 12, at 7:00 PM, we will host the world premiere of the locally produced documentary, tentatively titled "Sh..." It relates the story, so far, of The Group That Opened The Box. I've seen it and loved it. We will be selling series tickets in the Sidney J. Lee Auditorium (BSC campus) lobby before and after the screening. There will also be much opportunity for discussion.

The series then continues at the Grand Theaters with the ageless classic "Harold and Maude." This film has meant something different to me each decade of my life as my identification has gradually shifted from Harold to Maude.

All screenings on Thursdays at 3:00 and 5:30 at the Grand Theaters are:

January 19 - Harold and Maude, USA 1971
January 26 - The Interruptors, USA 2011
February 2 - Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, Thailand 2010*
February 9 - The Guard, Ireland 2011

Todd, can you PLEASE change the web site to be more usable? I cannot ever find any of the information I want, except by googling the exact thing I am looking for on the Cinema 100 web site, and then going to in via the google link. There appears to be absolutely no way to navigate about within the Cinema 100 web site.

It is a blog rather than a website which admittedly does pose some limitations. You can navigate by using the site map in the left margin. I'm assuming that simply finding the post containing the series schedule was where you found the difficulty. I can figure out a way to either always keep that at the top during the season or provide a more visible link to it. Thanks for the comment and sorry about the frustration.
