The United Artists 90th Anniversary series has started playing at SIFF Cinema, and I plan to warm up for the Festival by getting my fill of some old-school masterpieces. My picks:
Annie Hall playing Friday, May 9th @ 7pm (followed by Manhattan @ 9 if you're looking for some double feature Woody Allen action).
West Side Story, Saturday May 10th @ 2 and 8pm (the first musical to win my heart - and I don't generally like musicals).
Some Like it Hot, Sunday May 11th @ 2:15pm
Dr. No/Goldfinger Double Feature on Sunday, May 18th @ 2/6pm or 4/8pm (HELLO Sean Connery Bond!)
And,AePThe Manchurian Candidate on Monday, May 19th @ 7pm (I've never actually seen this original - only the remake. I'm kind of a Liev Schreiber fangirl).
Whether or not I'll make it to all of those has not been determined yet, but I love that SIFF is giving me the opportunity to go see some greats on the big screen. Tickets are just $10 each (cheaper for members), or if you're feeling hardcore you can grab a pass for all twenty-one films for $100 ($85 for SIFF Supporters!). You can see the full schedule here.
SIFF Cinema is located at 321 Mercer Street at 3rd Avenue, McCaw Hall.
