The preliminary schedule for the Spring Term 2014 (based on the collaborative programming meeting and Arts Centre consultation).
As a note: Beige are ‘related films’, bold are special events - e.g. AllNighters or collaborations.
Note the two semi-AllNighters. The Nolan AllNighter will be Memento, The Dark Knight, Inception & The Prestige
*]For continuity and variety, I wonder whether Aliens should be the 70-mm film. Die Hard was last shown in Spring 2012, whereas Aliens has not been shown since Autumn 2009. And since Alien is free for members this term, we could make Aliens a free-for-members film next term.
*]It seems odd to me to schedule Groundhog Day on the day after Groundhog Day.
A quick look at the lengths says these both have run-times of a little over 9 hours. Is the intention to start the nights later on, such as 9 in the evening or so? You don’t really want them finishing before 7 or so in the morning.
As the schedule stands I plan to see The Green Mile, Carrie, Spirited Away, Groundhog Day, The Wicker Man, The Act of Killing, Anchorman, Silver Linings Playbook, Battle Royale, A Nightmare on Elm Street, possibly see Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, The Visitor, Die Hard, (500) Days of Summer, Blue is the Warmest Color, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and if I do not see them elsewhere then Captain Phillips, Gravity, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
I was wondering if Jagten [The Hunt] had been considered (even if just as a reserve for the foreign films) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2106476/. I don’t believe it was shown last year.
Also Sunday screenings are to be singles only now (based on Exec discussion taking into account crew numbers and issues with staffing this term).
Reserve list is (in no particular order):
Philomena, Nebraska, Only God Forgive, Last Vegas
