Backpacking filmbuffs should head to New York
Over the last four nights of August - from the 28th to the 31st - double-feature and triple-feature events will be put on at the Dryden Theatre and you don't even need to worry about where to get your funky eyewear from as viewing glasses are provided when you get there. Each film will be shown in archival prints that need two projectors to make it work, displayed on a specially constructed silver screen.
The first film to kick the proceedings off is House of Wax, the horror story of Professor Henry Jarrod, played by Vincent Price. On the Saturday, Dial M for Murder - the tale of a husband planning to kill his wife - will be shown. Sunday sees a Western extravaganza, with three movies - Jesse James Vs. The Daltons, The Nebraskan and Fort Ti. To round the event off, two B-movies are to be screened - Man in the Dark and Drums of Tahiti.
If you intend to go, the Dryden can be found at George Eastman House in Rochester. It was built in 1951 apparently and the first film to be shown there was Nana, by Jean Renoir. It's a great place to visit and tempts over 40,000 people in each year.
