I was reading a post the other day on a cult film Web site and came across something very interesting for us folks within range of D.C. The AFI Silver Theater is hosting some very cool films this summer including:
Blade Runner: The Final Cut (although you really should wait for the June Fantasmo of course)
David Lynch’s Eraserhead
The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
The Harder They Come
Friday the 13th Part 3
. . . .and a whole bunch of other really neat stuff. Lots of restored prints too! They just finished screening a restored 70mm print of Kubrick’s 2001 (would have love to have seen that)! How about a restored version of Seagal’s timeless environmental masterpiece On Deadly Ground? Just couldn’t resist a Seagal reference : ) Here’s the Web site for more details: http://www.afi.com/silver/new/.
