AMELIE was a huge hit for us…and audiences adored it. If you were a fan, don’t miss MICMACS – now playing – but only through Thursday.
Jean-Pierre Jeunet is the briliant mind behind the truly charming MICMACS…and he’s also responsible for AMELIE, THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN, A VERY LONG ENGAGEMENT, and DELICATESSEN.
Some friends of mine couldn’t decided which film to see this weekend, so I highly recommended MICMACS…and they were delighted. They loved the film!
Synopsis for MICMACS: “First, it was a mine that exploded in the middle of the Moroccan desert. Years later, it was a stray bullet that lodged in his brain… Bazil (Dany Boon) doesn’t have much luck with weapons. The first made him an orphan, the second holds him on the brink of sudden and instant death.
Released from the hospital, Bazil is homeless. Luckily, our inspired and gentle-natured dreamer is adopted by a motley crew of secondhand dealers living in a veritable Ali Baba’s cave, whose talents and aspirations are as surprising as they are diverse…One day, walking by two huge buildings, Bazil recognizes the logos of the weapons manufacturers that caused his hardship. With the help of his faithful gang of wacky friends he sets out to get revenge. A gang of underdogs battling heartless industrial giants, they relive the battle of David and Goliath, with all the imagination and fantasy of Buster Keaton.” (taken from movieweb.com)
CYRUS performed well last weekend. Though a bit more serious in tone than anticipated, audiences are liking it.
I’m delighted to announce that the Downtown Dayton LGBT Film Festival is swinging into action for its 5th year! Mark your calendars for September 24-26. The opening night film will be I KILLED MY MOTHER (an absolutely incredible film that has won awards and garnered high praise from numerous film festivals…from Cannes to Toronto to Frameline) – and you absolutely can’t miss it on the big screen. The full line-up will be available soon. If you know someone who would like to sponsor the festival (either through a business or personally), please get in touch with me right away.
Don’t forget THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT. We’d love to have opening weekend be a huge success. It opens Friday, July 30. Please spread the word!!
Take care & see you soon,
