New in Theaters
The big show in town this weekend is Avengers: Endgame (Marvel Studios). I was able to see the film earlier this week and I share some thoughts about it on the podcast (and see the spoiler alert above).
Classic Cinema Corner
The latest TCM Essentials film was the Civil War epic Gone with the Wind (1939). I recorded it on my DVR while I was at the TCM Classic Film Festival and watched it during a couple of sessions this week (given the film’s four-hour run time). Can you believe that the film is still the all-time box office champ (adjusted for inflation, of course)?

The Criterion Channel launches on April 8! It’s not too late to sign up for a charter membership and enjoy their “Movie of the Week” via your browser on your computer or smartphone. Last week’s “Movie of the Week” was the classic film noir Detour (1945). This week’s film is the bonkers Czechoslovak film The Fabulous Baron Munchausen (1962).

Casablanca in Concert with the great Utah Symphony was amazing. It was also a wonderful way to knock another film off of my TCM Essentials list. (FYI, the Utah Symphony is doing Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope in Concert this May.) Look for this type of experience with your local symphony!
February’s TCM Big Screen Classics film is the film adaptation of the Broadway musical smash My Fair Lady (1964). The film screens on two days only–February 17 and 20. Details are at FathomEvents.com. Go see it! (And here’s an interesting story about Audrey Hepburn’s singing voice, Marni Nixon.)
The Oscars are happening on February 24 on ABC. Select movie theater chains across the country are offering special discounted passes to see all eight of the Best Picture nominees, including Megaplex Theatres, Cinemark, and AMC. It’s a great deal to see some great movies on the big screen.
