July-December Schedule

The Bank of America Cinema’s July-December 2010 schedule features some adventurous picks alongside the usual helping of classic Hollywood.

We’re getting with the spirit of several holiday weekends, including our opening film for Fourth of July weekend, Henry Koster’s Stars and Stripes Forever (1952), featuring Clifton Webb as John Phillip Sousa; the blacklisted film Salt of the Earth (1954) for Labor Day weekend; a double dose of Peter Lorre for Halloween, with Mad Love (1935) and The Face Behind the Mask (1941); a warmhearted Thanksgiving comedy in Norman Taurog’s Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch (1934); and the Laurel and Hardy operetta Babes in Toyland (1934) to close the season. There’s even a time-travel film for Daylight Savings Time.

We’re branching out a little from our modus operandi with our first ripped-from-the-headlines film in decades: as oil continues to pump into the Gulf of Mexico, the perils of oil exploration and putting too much trust in huge companies are on everyone's mind, so it's the perfect time to show Robert Flaherty’s Standard Oil-sponsored documentary Louisiana Story (1948). And although the French New Wave is light years away from our usual fare, Francois Truffaut named Morris Engel’s Little Fugitive (1953), screening in July, as one of the films that made it possible; on the other end of that little revolution is Arthur Penn’s New Wave-influenced Mickey One (1965), screening in December.

The latter two films would be not available without the addition of a second 35mm projector, which has opened the vaults for us: UCLA is loaning Frank Borzage’s Moonrise (1948) in August, and Sony Repertory is letting us borrow a half-dozen heretofore-off-limits archival prints.

  1. I'm very happy to see this type of post.I read lot of articles in your post.But comparing to other post yours is the best one i have seen forever.Thank you for that...


  2. Thanks a lot for this Tremendous & very informative post.

  3. I am Mariam used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Priests Abija); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him here as (518) 303-6207 or He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
