Season III Thalia Film Club: Fall Sneak Preview 4
Leonard Nimoy Thalia at Symphony Space
The Thalia Film Club
Only in its fourth installment, the Thalia Film Club has already seen the likes of directors David France and Michael Walker, actors Alan Cumming and Parker Posey, writer/director Travis Fine and producer Dolly Hall. The films have included the poignant documentary, How to Survive a Plague, the earnest film Any Day Now, and the hilarious Price Check.
Fine has created successful film clubs at the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville, NY, and the Emelin Theater in Mamaroneck, NY, and is a popular guest host at other film clubs in New York and the area. His previous guests at other film clubs range from directors such as Guillermo del Toro, Robert Towne and Barry Levinson to actors such as Penelope Cruz, Kevin Costner, Paul Giamatti and Clive Owen. Films have ranged from the moving Best Foreign Film winning drama Departures and Peter Jackson's adaptation of the best-selling novel The Lovely Bones, to the comedy Me and Orson Welles and Pedro Almodovar's latest offering, Broken Embraces.
"For me, one of the true joys of movie-going is seeing a film I know nothing about and discovering a gem," Fine says. "In these media-saturated times, people usually have the opposite experience: They go in knowing so much in advance that the movie itself can be a letdown. I love giving audiences that sensation of discovery - as well as the experience of seeing a film they might not normally have chosen for themselves and being blown away by it."
