More good news from the Orpheum Theatre in Fairfield. 12 Years A Slave, the OscarOrpheum Theatre winner for Best Picture of the year starts Friday. Also, "the long wait will soon be over, as the south theater will be opening this May! To extend their programming for Fairfield, the Orpheum will be finishing renovation of the south theater, which will include new seats, digital projection, and 5.1 Dolby Digital Sound. The goal has always been to have one theater exhibit mainstream blockbuster films and the other exhibit independent films and host live performances. In order to make this happen, the Orpheum is looking to partner with large businesses in Fairfield to raise funds by offering discounted ticket prices to employees.  If interested, please contact Kristian Day at kristianday@gmail.com."

Also, on Friday the Fairfield Library features an exceptional free film: Gravity. It was nominated for Best Picture and won 7 Academy awards, the most for any film. "Believe the hype: Gravity is as jaw-droppingly spectacular as you've heard"- AP. If you haven't seen this on a big screen, or would like to again, this is a great opportunity, and it's free. Doors open at 7:00, the film begins at 7:30. "As always your donations for the free film, organic popcorn and bottled water help the library to renew it's movie licenses." Thank Jan for all her work to make this happen.

Chris has seen Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel and I'm excited to hear his review. It will be coming to the Orpheum soon. We'll talk about that, the new releases and more, on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays at 12:30 PM, again Sunday mornings 11:30. "You're looking so well darling you really are. I don't know what sort of cream they put on you down at the morgue, but I want some..." - The Grand Budapest Hotel
