Saturday April 23rd at 7pm - Harlan County, USA (1976) by Barbara Kopple - This has turned out to be a particularly timely and important film from IHouse to be playing considering the attack going on right now in this county by the right on unions. An important film for anyone to see at this time in our history. A reminder of how important unions and protecting the rights of unions are.

Also, I will have a post in more detail closer to the date, but a very exciting event coming at the end of this month at IHouse:
Pop Cinema: Art and Film in the UK and US, 1950s - 1970s

Friday April 15th - His Girl Friday (1940) by Howard Hawks

Uncle Boonmee is also still playing at Cinema 16:9, if you haven't got a chance, I recommend seeing it, as this may be your only chance to see it in the theater in Philadelphia.
