Biograph Theatre’s 40th Anniversary Celebration

Sat Feb 11 7:00 pm
On its 40th anniversary, the Biograph Theatre, or perhaps something akin to its reanimated spirit, will serve up a pair of highly acclaimed films as a double feature to kick off a three or more part series titled “The Golden Age of Repertory Cinema.”

In other words, the James River Film Society will present “Breathless” (1960) — a 50th anniversary restoration 35mm print no less — and “Lonely Are the Brave” (1962) at the VCU Grace Street Theater on Saturday, February 11, 2012. The event will be a fundraiser for the volunteer run nonprofit James River Film Society and an opportunity to officially launch its campaign to establish a small storefront cinema in downtown Richmond.

This splendid on-the-lam twin bill is guaranteed to make viewers think no less than twice.

Grace Street’s Candlelight Home Tour

Sat Feb 11 4:00 pm
The West Grace Street Association is hosting its third annual Candlelight Home Tour on Saturday, February 11, 2012, from 4-8PM. This walking tour features a selection of six beautiful and architecturally significant homes along West Grace street.

Flight Night @ Secco

Mon Feb 13 8:00 pm
Trying new things is like hitting the refresh button on our existence: it delivers us from complacency, engages our senses and forces us to question our tastes, values and, in turn, our very nature. Yet, more often than not, most of us will opt for the familiar over the unknown. Every Monday.

FilmRoasters @ Firehouse

Sun Feb 19 8:00 pm
Once a month, the FilmRoasters slowly incinerate a cinematic achievement over a pit of microphone-fueled mockery. November’s guest of honor is The Day the Earth Stood Still. As usual, the FilmRoasters will be helping to cushion the pain of sitting through the movie by providing our own improv comedy commentary track during the film.

The next show is February 19. Tickets to the show are only $5, and all proceeds will be donated to the Firehouse Theatre Project. Doors will open at 8 p.m. and the movie will begin within the hour.
