FILMADELPHIA: A CELEBRATION OF A CITY'S MOVIES
Who says Philly film is limited to Rocky, Trading Places or The Sixth Sense? Irv Slifkin, author of the acclaimed book Filmadelphia: A Celebration of a City's Movies, takes you through the wide world of Philly films with this feature-length, clip-filled presentation. Witness examples of silent films shot in the Delaware Valley, early indie efforts, exploitation pictures, and lots more. From John Garfield in Pride of the Marines (1945) to Jayne Mansfield in The Burglar (1957); from the stark David and Lisa (1962) to the wacky Disk-O-Tek Holiday (1966) with Philly-based disc jockey Hy Lit, this 90 minute showcase is sure to entertain and make you want a soft pretzel with mustard at the same time. Slifkin will be signing his book post-presentation.
Advance tix are $8, no refunds or exchanges.
The Cinedelphia Film Festival is a Philly-centric celebration of Philly film running from April 4-27, 2013.
