Alamo Drafthouse and Kodak have partnered to celebrate 35mm with their first (hopefully annual) Reel Film Day on March 5th. It’s getting harder and harder to see 35mm projected in theaters – and for some fans there is no substitute to seeing a film projected on actual film.
Over 30 locations throughout the US and UK will be screening different films this Sunday and some theaters are also offering Q&As or even tours. If there’s not an Alamo Drafthouse near you don’t despair – many of the Reel Film Day events are happening at partner theaters.
Some of the screenings happening on Sunday include:
- Alamo Drafthouse New Mission in San Francisco, CA is screening King Lear (1987) including a Q&A with Tom Luddy.
- The Loft Cinema in Tucson, AZ is screening Bicycle Thieves.
- The Indianapolis Museum of Art in Indianapolis, IN is screening The Wizard of Oz.
- Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers in Yonkers, NY is screening The Muppets Take Manhattan and is giving kids tours of the projection booth.
- The Hollywood Theater in Pittsburgh, PA is screening Double Indemnity.
