Frame by Frame Cinema Studies Series

Saturday, July 13, 2024
Frame by Frame series – Six Weeks of Advanced Cinema Screenings with The Modern School of Film Tuesday February 16; March 1; March 15; March 29; April 12; April 26 at 7 p.m. This screening series will be the Cary Theater’s first cinema studies class series. It was created with the cinephile in mind that wants to delve deeper in the art and craft of film.  The Modern School of Film’s founder, Robert Milazzo, leads an in-depth, active deconstruction and group-discussion of six films of substantial significance in film history. This format will allow for the instructor to stop the film at points and lead in depth discussions about the techniques being used in the film, as you watch it. Explore the depth and breadth of film as an art form and see films you love in a new way! Films in the Series March 1 – The 400 Blows March 15 – Rashomon March 29 – The Searchers April 12 – Park Row April 26 – Mean Street Individual class: $10   The Cary and the Modern School of Film hosted a Cinema Studies screening of Orson Welles’ Touch of Evil last fall. Some of the attendees had this to say about it: “Well-done education program which introduced me to a new film with thoughtful analysis.”         “Wow! Far surpassed my expectations.  A completely rewarding experience!
