Cinema and Civics lineup announced and awesome
The fifth annual Cinema and Civics film and music series returns to Stevens Square Park next month, starting off what seems a promising summer with The Neverending Story and MC/VL on June 16th. Trying to find a common thread in the movies this year, the only free-association that came to mind was animals: the make-me-ups (Neverending Story), the prim and coddled (Best In Show), monstrous morons (Dr. Strangelove), the peckish and flighty (The Birds), or the escape artists (Pee Wee's Big Adventure). I don't really think there's a theme. There is however a pretty much consistently great lineup of bands playing, including Buildings, Phantom Tails, and Gay Witch Abortion.
The organizers of the series are also still looking for short films to screen on their last night, July 21st. May I propose a short documentary on everyone's favorite door guy, Ron? More information can be found here.
Here's the full schedule:
The Neverending Story
Best In Show
Pee Wee's Big Adventure
Gay Witch Abortion
