Presented by Laurent Gariépy.
“We’ll start the month with a milestone in science fiction cinema, Robert Wise’s The Day the Earth Stood Still, considered by many to be the first great American science fiction film. Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s Amélie celebrates its 20th anniversary and John Huston’s The Maltese Falcon starring Humphrey Bogart celebrates its 80th, so we’ll be sure to take advantage of these opportunities to present them.”
“On November 11 we’ll show Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan with Tom Hanks. Also, on November 27 at 2pm we’ll try to get you in the mood for the season with a screening of John Hughes and Les Mayfield’s version of Miracle on 34th Street, starring Richard Attenborough as Santa.”
“In addition to these movies, we will screen David Lynch’s second feature The Elephant Man and Frank Darabont ‘s The Shawshank Redemption based on a short story by Stephen King. And we’ll end the month with Ernst Lubitsch’s The Shop Around the Corner, the film starring James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan is surely one of the most endearing rom-coms of the American cinema. No wonder there have been remakes (the most famous being You’ve Got Mail).”
