The Kentucky Theatre has set the lineup for the annual Rosa Goddard Film Festival, always a cool chance to see classic cinema on the big screen -- an experience far too scarce these days. The festival is named for Goddard, a longtime Kentucky Theatre supporter whose bequest to the theater funds the fest. Here's the '07 lineup:
~ Black Orpheus (1959) -- The French Oscar-winner for best foreign language film retells the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice during Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. 5:15, 7:30 and 9:40 p.m. Sept. 6.
~ The Third Man (1949) -- When a novelist (Joseph Cotten) arrives in Post-WWII Vienna to find the friend who invited him (Orson Welles) has died in a strange auto accident, he tries to figure out what happened. 1, 3:40, 5:20, 7:30 and 9:40 p.m. Sept. 8.
~ The Triplets of Belleville (2003) -- Grandmas to the rescue in this delightful, tuneful animated feature. 1:20, 3:20, 5:20, 7:40 and 9:40 p.m. Sept. 9.
~ Women on the Edge of a Nervous Breakdown (1988) -- Here's your Almodovar fix, and a chance to see Carmen Maura, the secret weapon of Volver, and a young Antonio Banderas. 5:20, 7:30 and 9:40 p.m. Sept. 10.
~ Army of Shadows (1969) -- This film about the French resistance in World War II is strikingly dark and brutal. 5 and 7:45 p.m. Sept. 11.
~ McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971) -- It may have been too late to schedule a Bergman film in tribute to his passing, but here we have vintage Altman with Warren Beatty and Julie Christie. 5, 7:20 and 9:40 p.m. Sept. 12.
~ Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (1972) -- Luis Bunuel's dreamy film about six people's unsuccessful attempts to have a meal together. 5:20, 7:30 and 9:40 p.m. Sept. 13.
