Gird your loins, Wes: the Film Series is here! Sure, it’s cold outside, but if you can survive the trek to the Center for Film Studies, you will be rewarded with the warm, pure, joyous magic of cinema… starting with Coppola’s The Godfather: Part II on Wednesday, January 21. This quarter’s calendar is stacked, with 6 new releases (including award-season favorite Birdman and the Connecticut premiere of Godard’s experimental venture into 3-D, Goodbye to Language) alongside a slew of beloved classics (comedy favorites Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Zoolander will brighten your frigid winter). The calendar also features the Eighth Annual Ring Family Israeli Film Series, sponsored by the Ring family and the Center for Jewish Studies, on Thursday nights starting on January 29.
The Film Series screens four films a week, Wednesday through Saturday nights. Wednesday and Friday nights cost $5, Thursday and Saturday nights are free. The films begin on time, at 8 p.m. in the Goldsmith Family Cinema, and are shown in 35mm or DCP (Digital Cinema Package) wherever possible. For more information, look for a Film Series calendar in your mailbox or on our Facebook page. You can also follow us on Twitter or email us at wesleyanfilmseries[at]gmail[dot]com.
