THELMA SCHOONMAKER visits Scarecrow Wednesday, Feb. 10th

We at Scarecrow are honored to once again welcome to the store Thelma Schoonmaker, the triple-Oscar winning film editor of many of Martin Scorsese's films including Raging Bull, The Aviator, The Departed and the upcoming Shutter Island. She'll be stopping by the store on Wednesday, February 10th at 2pm. Ms. Schoomaker is in town presenting two films by her husband, legendary British director Michael Powell, at Seattle Art Museum. On Tuesday, February 9th it's I Know Where I'm Going! (1945) and the following evening it's The Red Shoes. This is the Seattle premiere of Martin Scorsese's personal Film Foundation restored 35mm print of The Red Shoes, which he mentioned during his speech accepting the Cecil B. DeMille award at last month's Golden Globe awards: Note: If listening to Mr. Scorsese talk about film and film preservation made you tear up a bit (like I did), be sure to check out A Personal Journey with Martin Scorsese Through American Movies, in which he takes us through his favorite films and shares their influence on his work. One viewing is roughly equivalent to a quarter of film school. Both films begin at 7:30pm downtown at the Seattle Art Museum. For ticket information, please visit their website. To prepare for her visit, here's footage of Ms. Schoonmaker discussing her career and how she goes about the editing process. Make plans to take a late lunch, skip class, or leave work early to meet and chat with a modern film legend. We'll see you here.
