Sie FilmCenter: Join the Tattered Cover Book Store, UCD’s College of Arts & Media, Colorado Public Radio, and the new Sie FilmCenter (in the Lowenstein CulturePlex, next door to the Tattered Cover Colfax Avenue) for an exploration of the world of classic movies, hosted by Colorado Public Radio film critic Howie Movshovitz. All programs begin at 2:00 pm. Admission is free, but tickets are required from the box office. Tickets are available one hour before screening. Parking is avilable in the parking lot off of Elizabeth or Columbine Streets. This month we’ll see the 1941 Alexander Korda classic That Hamilton Woman. The famous Horatio, Lord Nelson, the admiral who defeated Napoleon, had a long-time affair with Emma, Lady Hamilton. Here, played by the real-life couple of Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh, the love story is full of dash and passion. It’s filmed beautifully by Rudolph Maté, and backed by a spectacularly good crew—including composer Miklós Rósza and production designer Vincent Korda.
