Start: 2:00 pm
Sie FilmCenter/Colfax: 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 1953 Max Ophüls classic The Earrings of Madame de…. Without telling him, Madame de… (Danielle Darrieux) sells a pair of earrings given to her by her husband in order to pay some debts. That act sets off a circular wave of suspicions, as well as financial and marital difficulties. Director Max Ophüls is little known in the U.S. now, but he’s one of the greatest filmmakers. This delicate, suggestive masterpiece was his personal favorite.
