What to do tonight: 1/28

Hello there Bruno and welcome back to the blustery wintry weather of Providence! For those of you brave enough to take on the slush, here’s what’s going on in BrownTown:

MCM Cinémathèque presents 16mm films from the archive!

6 pm

135 Thayer Street, Room 101

Free!

Unleash your inner MCM Concentrator and attend this screening of two 1960s Czech new wave films from the Modern Culture and Media 16mm archive. Intimate Lighting (1965) and A Report on the Party and the Guests (1966) have been pulled out of the archive for one night only.

The King’s Speech

Ok, so don’t unleash your inner MCM Concentrator. But still go see a movie. A great movie. About King George VI’s attempt to rid himself of a speech impediment with the help of an eccentric speech therapist and the constant encouragement of his wife. Strong acting, a wonderful plot and English accents. How can you go wrong? Starring Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter.
