Some Like It Wilder!

Have Thursday nights free for the next two months? A fine way to spend those evenings is at The Seattle Art Museum's SOME LIKE IT WILDER series, watching the films of cinematic genius Billy Wilder. Here's the lineup: January 11th--Double Indemnity January 18th--A Foreign Affair January 25th--Sunset Boulevard February 1st--Ace In The Hole February 8th--The Seven Year Itch February 15th--Witness for the Prosecution February 22nd--Some Like It Hot March 1st--The Apartment March 8th--The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes March 15th--Avanti! Even if you've watched these films countless times (like any student of the cinema should have), it's worth it to take the time and see them on a big screen with a crowd of similarly appreciative people. I'm most looking forward to Ace In the Hole, since it isn't available on any home video format (but should be so if someone could get on that, that'd be great, thanks). Since SAM is currently being spruced up, the series is at The Museum of History and Industry (or as their voice message says, "also known as MOHAI"). Tickets for the full series are available here and are $58 for members of SAM, MOHAI, Cinema Seattle or the Frye Art Museum (do they call it FAM?), $65 for everyone else. Money well spent, I say.
