In honor of the 40th anniversary closing of Parsons College, Fairfield's Orpheum Theatre is showing Midnight Cowboy for one week, starting Friday. The students who graduated that final year would have been freshmen when this Best Picture Academy Award winner opened in 1969. Also, Night Of The Living Dead will show Friday & Saturday at midnight. George A. Romero's debut "set the template for the zombie film." 

We're stoked about Gravity, "directed by Oscar nominee Alfonso Cuaron, staring Oscar winners Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space." This is an absolute must-see for film fans. Please experience Gravity on the biggest & best movie venue possible. "Words can do little to convey the visual astonishment this space opera creates. It is a film whose impact must be experienced in 3-D on a theatrical screen to be fully understood."- Kenneth Turan, L.A. Times. "In one form or another, motion pictures have been with us since the middle of the 19th century, but there's never been one like Gravity."- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal." This isn't just the best-looking film of the year, it's one of the most awe-inspiring achievements in the history of special-effects cinema."- Time Out. We suggest watching in it 3D, Dolby Atmos sound on the three story high, 55 foot wide screen at the Palms 10 Theatres in Muscatine, Iowa's newest theater offering the latest in movie technology.

We'll talk about that, Ron Howard's Rush and more, on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Friday at 12:30 Central, again Sunday morning at 9:00. "I haven't yet fully recovered." Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice, on Gravity
