INDEPENDENT FILMS – Kathy Kay

Summer lends itself to the golden oldies, Cinecenta is screening The Graduate and Purple Rain

If you’re watching an indie film doesn’t it seem appropriate to watch it in an unusual location?

With summer coming along there will be a plethora of outdoor screenings including a new one this year at Phillips Brewery for a screening of Pulp Fiction complete with Royales With Cheese, milkshakes and word has it – jello shooter syringes … oh, Uma you made such an impression.

As it seems that summer lends itself to the golden oldies, Cinecenta is screening The Graduate and Purple Rain (we all feel the loss of Prince). The Free B will be bringing Ladyhawke, Galaxy Quest and – believe it or not – Poseidon Adventure back to the big screen (Shelley Winters – you go girl!) and screenings go beyond the usual Beacon Hill Park location to the Legislature lawn and the Broadmead Plaza for a drive in style screening. In the end it’s all about the memories.
