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 1973 Frederico Fellini classic Amarcord. Amarcord takes place in an imagined, exaggerated, sometimes teasing version of the town where Fellini grew up. As is typical for Fellini, the memories of this town are filled with mythically deep snowstorms, strange ships and other inexplicable natural phenomena, both human and not. There are moments of great joy, and also recollections of the brutality of Mussolini and the Fascists. Roger Ebert once said that while the stuff of Amarcord is standard Fellini, he’d never seen it in such a beautiful package.
