Housekeeping Oops, I Fucked Up: Secret Sunday Matinee Edition
posted by October 23 at 14:16 PMon
The Sprocket Society’s Secret Sunday Matinee, which I recommend because it’s totally fun and weird, is at a special time this Sunday: 4 pm. But in the print edition this week, I forgot to change the time. It says it’s at noon. It is not at noon!
Special time, special movie. From the Sprocket Society via e-mail:
This Sunday’s 4 PM matinee will be a great show, literally a once-in-a-lifetime screening. The Secret Feature is a spectacular 1950s Russian fantasy classic by the great director Alecsandr (Alexander) Ptushko, who lets his imagination and lush colors run riot in one of his most famous films…Extremely rare on any film stock, this particular 16mm print has never once been run through any projector or machine until this Sunday. On low-fade Anscochrome film stock, it is a mint copy stored well since it was struck in the late 1970s. I spliced it together tonight from the original lab cores.
Anyway, sorry everyone!
