The Filmosophers Movie Talk

We're thrilled to have the Fairfield Orpheum Theatre open and already adding Orpheum Theatreseveral entertainment options to our cultural district. This weekend the delightful and well reviewed documentary Rewind This! opens. It explores "the enormous cultural and historical impact of the VHS tape. "A fascinating, funny and focused journey through our recent - and rapidly changing - cultural memory, lest we forget." But that's just the beginning. Best of Fest: The Chicago International Children's Film Festival runs Saturday, at 11 AM and 2 PM. It "showcases the best in culturally diverse, non-violent, value-affirming new cinema for children, and is one of the only Academy Award qualifying children's film festivals in the world." Also, Return Of The Living Dead runs Fri. & Sat. at midnight. But wait, there's more! The Walking Dead Season 4 premeires Sunday at 8:00PM and it's free! For more info call 641-209-5008 .

It's fall, which means award worthy films are opening. Today Captain Phillips opens wide with an excellent buzz, both for the film and Tom Hank's performance. Chris, Shane and I have all seen Gravity in 3D and we're excited to tell you about it. Shane's in school so we recorded the show yesterday afternoon so he could join us. A shout out to KRUU's Assistant Manager Andrew Tint for helping us record the show. It's great to have you there! Everyone's invited to KRUU to meet Andrew and the rest, at KRUU's 7th Anniversary party, tomorrow, Saturday the 12th, from 1-5PM. It's an open house, with food, CDs, books and more.

Meanwhile, we're the Filmosopher's, with Chris Busch, Shane & Bruce Miller "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays at 12:30, again Sunday mornings at 9:00.

The Filmosophers Movie Talk

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
