Today is the day we finally return to Muenzinger for our first public screening in far too long. The Wednesday night (POLICE STORY), Friday night (POLICE STORY 2), and Saturday (VISIONS OF LIGHT) night shows are all free and all start at 7:30 p.m.
On Sunday at 2 p.m., we'll be screening Robert Altman's THE PLAYER — one of the all-time great movies about the movie industry. It's wickedly funny and darkly subversive — using Hollywood as a mirror for our country as a whole.
Then on Monday, we return to our evening slot of 7:30 p.m. with a 35mm print of BARTON FINK, which won the Palme d'Or as well as awards for Best Director and Best Actor (Turturro) at the '91 Cannes Film Festival.
Speaking of film festivals, the 48th Telluride Film Festival just wrapped up an amazing program. We look forward to bringing many of the gems that were screened at TFF to the IFS as soon as they are made available to us. Mandatory masking was in place and attendees at TFF screened as many as six movies a day at 9,000 feet altitude. Compliance with the mandate was easy, the kindness was contagious, and best of all people felt safe. We'll be following their cue and our fully vaccinated staff at the IFS is ready and eager to carry the torch for cinema lovers in the Muenzinger auditorium. We have a lot of special events planned from now through December and we look forward to providing details in our ongoing weekly updates. See you at the show!
