What to do on Saturday? Silent film under the stars? YES!

Just a reminder that  Silent & Classic Movie Nights continues this Saturday with the 1915 film version of Alice In Wonderland. Bring the whole family and watch the film under the stars. Gates open at 7:30.

“The 1915 film version of Alice In Wonderland will be screened on Saturday, July 27. This is the third film adaption of the Lewis Carroll classic novel. For admirers of the book, this film version is significant for portraying the ‘Father William’ poem in its entirety and it includes an image of John Tenniel’s illustration of Father William doing his back-somersault at the front door. Tenniel was the artist who illustrated Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass.

San Bernardino Art + Film Lab Friday, July 26–Sunday, August 25, 2013

Friday, July 26–Sunday, August 25, 2013 Perris Hill Park in San Bernardino is the second site for the LACMA9 Art + Film Lab.  Area residents are invited to participate in free film workshops, an oral history project, outdoor film screenings, plus a free day at LACMA. Presented by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in collaboration with the City of San Bernardino Parks and Recreation and the Arts Council.

About the City of San Bernardino Located south of the San Bernardino Mountains and west of the lower desert, San Bernardino is known for its scenic beauty and strategic location.  It is the largest city in the County of San Bernardino with a population of over 200,000 people.  Early influences of Native Americans, Mexican settlers, Spanish missionaries and Mormon emigrants still echo throughout the city today forming a community rich in history and cultural diversity. Known as LACMA9 Art + Film Lab, the project opens its doors Friday, June 7, at the University of Redlands. The structure consists of three elements: a computer lab, an art-making space and an audiovisual lab, each housed in a trailer-like room radiating from a central hub.

A screen installed between two of the sections will be used for nighttime movie presentations. All the programs are free. The workshops, on topics such as documentary making, composition and sound design, will be offered in the first two rooms. The audiovisual lab will host oral history sessions, in which members of the public can talk about their lives. “People will record a story about their community or a significant story in their life,” said Sarah Jesse, the art museum’s associate vice president of education. “If they bring a flash drive, they can take (a copy of the session) with them.” The lab will be at the Redlands site until July 7. From July 26 to Aug. 25, it will be at Perris Hill Park in San Bernardino, next to the senior center.

The Hitchcock 9 at LACMA

wow this sounds awesome!

HITCHCOCK'S VERTIGO

The Hitchcock 9

 

In partnership with the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, LACMA is proud to be the Los Angeles venue for this monumental touring series that presents, for the first time ever, all nine of Alfred Hitchcock’s surviving silent films in gorgeous new digital restorations from the British Film Institute. This series includes Hitchcock’s directorial debut—The Pleasure Garden, made when he was just 25—as well as beloved masterworks such as the expressionistic The Lodger and his seminal thrillerBlackmail. The series tracks how Hitchcock’s style developed over three short yet productive years as he transitioned from an UFA-steeped upstart to a world-class British auteur. Launching with the little-seen seaside melodrama The Manxman—featuring a new score written and performed by Stephen Horne—The Hitchcock 9 is a rare opportunity to experience the fascinating evolution of a cinematic genius.

This sounds amazing! the Sawdust Art Festival in Long Beach

Like a moth to a flame I was drawn  by fate to find this.  I love ANYTHING wood even good old fashioned forest and tree’s.  Living in Southern California where it is very dry and most nature is planned landscaping, I have a genuine appreciation for natural habitat.

BACK TO THE WOOD, so I was looking for new and fun things to do and found the Sawdust Art festival.  I love the craftsmanship that goes into anything made of wood and I really look forward to making it out to this sometime soon.
