Magic Lantern 31st Annual Fall Film Festival @ Magic Lantern Cinemas
12:00 am
The Magic Lantern is delighted to announce the beginning of its 31st Annual Fall Film Festival starting Friday, September 25th.  It’s going to be an unusual Festival this year.   The Festival will go on for the entire month of October and the films are going to be booked for full week runs so there will be ample opportunity to see them. The event will open with three diverse films.  The Dark Divide a life-changing expedition across one of America’s largest undeveloped wildlands, Washington’s Gifford Pinchot National Forest.  It’s a beautiful, quiet, lyrical, funny wilderness trip, and a meditation on loss and picking up the pieces staring David Cross and Debra Messing.  The Burnt Orange Heresy is an erotic thriller set in the high-end art world loaded with plot turns with Italy’s Lake Como serving as a lavish background. The first week’s final entry is a modern classic.  The 1976 Oscar-winning satire on the television news business, Network, which turned out to be frighteningly prescient of television news today. Currently, the festival line up includes Warren Miller’s bio-epic Ski Bum, a quirky British mystery/comedy Sometime Always Never, the third marvelous travelogue with Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan, The Trip to Greece, ...

New this fall, The Museum will screen films weekly, starting Thursday, Sept. 24, and continuing through December. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2020 – 4:00 PM (first showing) It’s a shame no one wants to talk to them at parties because obituary writers are a surprisingly funny bunch. Ten hours before newspapers hit neighborhood doorsteps–and these days, ten minutes before news hits the web–an obit writer is racing against deadline to sum up a long and newsworthy life in under 1000 words. The details of these lives are then deposited into the cultural memory amid the daily beat of war, politics, and football scores. OBIT. is the first documentary to explore the world of these writers and their subjects, focusing on the legendary team at The New York Times, who approach their daily work with journalistic rigor and narrative flair. Going beyond the byline and into the minds of those chronicling life after death on the freshly inked front lines of history, the film invites some of the most essential questions we ask ourselves about life, memory, and the inevitable ...
