Deep Cuts From the Sight & Sound List Screening, $5
Another series is called “Deep Cuts From the Sight & Sound List Screening,” a curated film series featuring what are considered the best films of all time.
Conducted every 10 years, the Sight & Sound Best Movies of All Time poll is voted on by film critics, writers, professors and other experts in the field of cinema. A concurrent poll is open only to directors, and their results often vary wildly from the main poll. The Cosford Cinema will be showcasing selections from the second half of the list every Sunday at 1 p.m. through Dec. 3, 2023. Admission is $5 per film.
Here's the lineup:
- Nov. 19: “His Girl Friday” (1939) black & white film directed by Howard Hawks starring Cary Grant, Rosalind Russell and Ralph Bellamy in a romantic screwball comedy about a New York newspaper editor and the trouble that ensues when he discovers his ex-wife is dating an investigative reporter.
- Dec. 3: “Mad Max Fury Road” (2015) directed by George Miller and starring Charlize Theron, Tom Hardy and Zoe Kravitz is the fourth entry in the Mad Max franchise about a woman rebelling against a tyrannical ruler while searching for her homeland.
