The Maker House is Playing 'Sunset Boulevard' Tonight

Posted By on Thu, Oct 24, 2013 at 11:30 AM

The good folks over at Maker House are playing the film noir classic Sunset Boulevard tonight 7 p.m. According to their Facebook page, they've built a 20-foot movie screen for the occasion! The film stars Gloria Swanson as a washed-up, delusional actress and William Holden as an eager screenwriter/gigolo, and in my opinion, is one of the greatest films ever made. I'm obviously not alone on this.

Tonight is your chance to watch it with a bonafide movie critic. Joe Morella, formerly of Variety, will be in attendance and will be providing some sort of commentary after the film I'd imagine. Morella's written a fair share of books covering Hollywood's Golden Age, including biographies on Mia Farrow, Judy Garland, and Rita Hayworth.

The event tonight kicks off a four-part series Morella will be presenting on classic films at Maker House. Up next on the schedule is Shakespeare in Love on Nov. 22. I'd love to hear Morella's take on why that won Best Picture over Saving Private Ryan and The Thin Red Line.

Maker House is located at 283 N. Stone Ave. Admission is free, but you should probably RSVP at the event's Eventbrite page here.
