- It’d be enough if Film Streams just brought smart, artistic movies to our fine city, but they also deliver periodic doses of immortality. Seriously! They are firing up the latest edition of their Forever Young series thanks to the support of Lincoln Financial Foundation. Kicking off with a two-week run of last year’s nominee for Best Animated Film, Ernest & Celestine, the collection of films aimed at kids and anyone with a child still (metaphorically) inside of them continues with four feature-length collections of Charlie Chaplin shorts. Tickets are only two-fiddy for kids 12 or younger, and the series starts April 12 and runs through June, shortly before you get to return your kids to the substandard public education that provides you respite.
- Because the Internet ruins literally everything, we will never see Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, a western that sounded supremely awesome. When the script leaked, thanks to a self-important boob in need of face punching, Tarantino put the kibosh on a big screen version. But for one night and one night only, a small group will get a glimpse of what could have been. Film Independent is hosting a live-reading of the script directed by QT. Sadly, we normals won’t be able to attend, making this yet another gut punch delivered by the Internet. Someone should really take this thing down.
- They are potentially making a sequel to An Inconvenient Truth, the documentary that put global warming on the map...just as we’re about to potentially be wiped off it. The producers and writers are gathering to potentially make a follow-up that covers the developments since the last installment nearly a decade ago. Presumably, the film would just be clips of The Day After Tomorrow with Al Gore crying “You maniacs! You blew it up! Damn you all to hell!”
