2011 Summer Line Up!

Finally, after some delay due to logistics with the films, I’m happy to announce the Stilwell Summer Film Series Line Up!  This year we’re heading to the wild west with two Westerns and two Western influenced films!

July 8: Rio Bravo, the Howard Hawk’s classic starring John Wayne, Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson.

July 15:  Bandidas, the 2006 western comedy starring Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek as bank-robbers in turn of the century Mexico, and co-starring one of my favorite actors, Steve Zhan!

July 22: Rango, the 2011 animated film with Johnny Depp as a chameleon transplanted into the middle of Chinatown and High Noon!

July 29: Our 2011 finale: Star Wars IV: A New Hope, George Lucas’ western inspired sci-fi classic that started it all!

As always, all films start at dusk on the southern wall of Stilwell United Methodist Church (19335 Metcalf Ave), and it is outdoors, so bring chairs and blankets to sit on.  In case of bad weather, films will be moved indoors.  Popcorn is free, and other food and drink are available by donation.

This year, we are looking to expand on the experience by providing pre-film entertainment, so check back often to find out about all the action!  More information about the films will also be posted over the coming weeks, including ratings, running times and reviews, but if you have any questions in the mean time, email info@stilwellfilm.org or follow us on  twitter.
