Sie FilmCenter/Colfax: Join the Tattered Cover Book Store, UCD’s College of Arts & Media, and 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 film critic Howie Movshovitz. All programs begin at 2:00 pm. Admission is $1.00. 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 1951 Anthony Asquith classic The Browning Version. The film comes from Terence Rattigan’s play about a teacher at a British public school who is treated badly by everyone he knows, except for one young kid who sees in the teacher what everyone else overlooks. The film offers a stunning picture of characters who use manners and procedure to mask behaviors that are not physically violent, but unbelievably cruel. Michael Redgrave, as the teacher, gives one of the greatest film performances ever. (90 minutes) For information on the Sie FilmCenter go to denverfilm.org For a PDF of our Tattered Cover Film Series flyer, please click Tattered Cover Film Series flyer.

Colfax Avenue: Craig Johnson, whose bestselling Longmire series is entering its second season as an A&E television series of the same name, will read from and sign his new mystery featuring Sheriff Walt Longmire Any Other Name ($26.95 Viking). As Walt is sinking into high-plains winter discontent, his former boss asks him to take on a mercy case in an adjacent county—the apparent suicide of another sheriff. Walt soon learns that the by-the-book detective might have suppressed evidence concerning three missing women, and digging deeper, he uncovers an incriminating secret so dark that it threatens to claim other lives even before the sheriff can serve justice.
