Thelma Schoonmaker's coming to town!

The Seattle Art Museum is pleased to bring Thelma Schoonmaker, Oscar winning editor of many Martin Scorsese films and wife of legendary British director Michael Powell to discuss her late husband's work and present two of his rare films. On Tuesday, February 13th, Ms. Schoonmaker will screen the restorted British version of Gone to Earth (1950). Jennifer Jones stars as a spirited young maid who finds love sacred (in her minister husband Cyril Cusack) and profane (with her vicar lover David Farrar). On Wednesday, February 14th, she'll present Age of Consent (1969), starring James Mason as a disillusioned painter who heads to the Great Barrier Reef for rejuvenation and finds it in his young model (Helen Mirren, in one of her first film roles). The screenings will take place at the McEachern Auditorium at the Museum of History and Industry at 7:30pm. Tickets are $7 for SAM, MOHAI and SIFF members and $10 for everyone else. The tickets are per night (so if you want to attend both screenings, you'll have to buy two tickets) and are available at the SAM box office or right here at Scarecrow.
