Film Series Celebrates Spring with Feel-Good Hits ‘Silence of the Lambs,’ ‘Psycho, ‘The Master’

Okay, fine, they’re also closing off the year with The Breakfast Club.

Get ready to enjoy the final Film Series calendar of the year with some fava beans and a nice Chianti, because Hannibal Lector is coming to the Goldsmith. Silence of the Lambs—the first film I ever saw in a movie theater (I was five months old) and at Wesleyan, maybe the last—will be joined by feel-good blockbusters like so-obvious-you-can’t-believe-you-haven’t-seen-it-at-the-Goldsmith Psycho (just in time for Sacha Gervasi’s Hitchcock biopic, starring Dr.  Lector Anthony Hopkins himself) and recently acclaimed Paul Thomas Anderson Scientology meditation The Master, which stars usual suspect Philip Seymour Hoffman and up-and-coming rapper Joaquin Phoenix. These films are playing on Friday, April 19; Wednesday, April 3; and Wednesday, March 27, respectively.

As far as serious crowd-pleasers go, you’ll probably be excited to note that the Film Board is closing off the academic year (just about) with John Hughes classic The Breakfast Club, because a raging  “Don’t You Forget About Me” singalong in the Goldsmith is precisely what this campus needs. (Prepare by reviewing Molly Ringwald’s Reddit AMA!) (Maybe next year you’ll be blessed with Sixteen Candles.) Speaking of the ’80s, they have also finally honored Goatmilk’s insistent requests for The Land Before Time, which is scheduled to light up your weekend with dinosaurs next Friday night. Also on the agenda is something calling itself “An Evening of Experimental Cinema,” because of course there is.

Film Hall Screening of Vertigo

Katie McConnell ’13 wants you to come out and join the Film Hall Ballers for a sick screening this weekend. Film Hall will be screening Alfred Hitchcock’s ’58 classic, Vertigo. And I know what you’re thinking, “But, It’s a Wonderful Life is my favorite James Stewart movie.” And while I’d agree with you, Vertigo is still a pretty great movie. So, head over to Film Hall (basement of Nics 6) tomorrow night at 8:00 to join in on the fun.

  • Date: Tomorrow, January 30
  • Time: 8:00 – 10:00 PM
  • Place: Film Hall (basement of Nics 6)
