Spring Film Series Mixes Up Old and New

Every Wednesday, local cinephiles can enjoy great old and recent films, a pre-film lecture and post movie discussion for just $5.


The film series at the Petaluma campus of the Santa Rosa Junior College is back with great selections and a post screening discussion to boot. Every Wednesday evening, cinephiles can kick back, enjoy a film, then discuss it with a resident film expert all for just $5.

The series started in January with Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, but will also feature plenty of older flicks including Peter Bogdanovich’s The Last Picture Show (February 6), a nostalgic yet surprisingly modern look at a group of small town high school seniors finding their way into adulthood in the 1950s.

If you’re a fan of Jean-Luc Godard, check out “Breathless,” screening February 13, a sexy, experimental homage to American film. Jean-Paul Belmondo stars as a young petty thief who after shooting a police officer seeks sanctuary with a young woman selling American magazines.

Missed Anna Karenina’s brief run in the movie theaters? You can catch it here on February 27. The film is an adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s 1877 novel and earned four Oscar nominations this year including Best Cinematography and Production Design.

The spring series is put on by the Petaluma Film Alliance. Movies are screened at the Carole L. Ellis Auditorium on the Petaluma campus of the Santa Rosa Junior College. 680 Sonoma Mountain Parkway.
