As the station wagons arrive and form that long shining line connecting last year to the inevitable next on campus, so does Establishing Shot return, equally filled to the brim with toiletries destined to give way to generic brands and socks never to be paired properly again. Ted and Ricky are back to discuss an incredibly busy September (with a slice of August).
Outside of some great new fare (including Jafar Panahi’s 3 Faces, Peter Jackson’s old/new They Shall Not Grow Old, and a live broadcast of National Theatre Live’s Fleabag), the Browning Cinema has plenty of classics throughout the month including through two standing series. Professor Pfinklepfunder is back with his $1 Sunday Family Films. This semester, he’s pulling exclusively from Disney’s vault, including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, and Pinocchio this month.
Also, Learning Beyond the Classics returns with two new six-week courses on New Jack Cinema (Do the Right Thing, Boyz N the Hood, New Jack City, Just Another Girl on the I.R.T., Poetic Justice, and Set It Off) and Screening the Irish Troubles (Michael Collins, The Wind That Shakes the Barley, Bloody Sunday, Hunger, Some Mother’s Son, and H3).
