I'm making this schedule as bare bones as possible (partly because I'm writing this the day before the fest and partly just for clarity).
Find the full schedule here.
Thursday April 10
Press Day / 9AM--12:15PM / Chinese 1
(I have no idea why this is being held in a movie theater instead of the Roosevelt, or why it's so long this year. I just hope they have free coffee like last year!!)
Pick up festival badge at the Barcelona Suite of the Roosevelt. Bask in swag.
Meet TCM / 2PM / Egyptian
(What is this and why is it being held in the Egyptian? I might go; I'll probably bolt early, however.)
Sons of Gods and Monsters / 3:30PM / Hollywood Museum
(Where is the Hollywood Museum, again? So many questions this year!)
Welcome Party / 5PM / Club TCM
(Two words: free beer.)
5th Avenue Girl / 7PM / Chinese 4
Johnny Guitar / 10PM / Chinese 1
Friday, April 11
On Approval / 9:45AM / Chinese 4
Grey Gardens / 12PM / Chinese
(This was the hardest choice of the fest for me--HENRY ORIENT and MAKE WAY FOR TOMORROW might still factor in, depending on how I'm feeling that day.)
Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore / 3PM / Chinese 6
The Lion in Winter / 5:45PM / Chinese 4
(This is the only film I have scheduled that I've seen before, not including the midnight screenings, but I gotta pay tribute to my boy Peter O'Toole.)
The Italian Job / 9:30PM / Egyptian
Eraserhead / Midnight / Chinese 6
(I'm glad I've seen this film in a theater before, because there is a 90% chance that I'm going to fall asleep.)
Saturday, April 12
Stella Dallas / 9AM / Chinese 6
Hannah and Her Sisters / 11:45AM / Chinese 6
How Green Was My Valley / 3PM / El Capitan
A Hard Day's Night / 6:30PM / TCL Chinese
(It is literally killing me that the ending of this movie overlaps with the beginning THE MUPPET MOVIE. I want to cry.)
Sorcerer / 9:15PM / TCL Chinese
Freaks / Midnight / Chinese 6
(I've seen this one on the big screen, too. Thank God, because, yeah, I'll probably be snoozing.)
Sunday, April 13
Sunday is the day of TBAs. I don't have anything scheduled for the first half of the day, precisely for this reason. We'll see what comes up.
The Heart is a Lonely Hunter / 3:45PM / Egyptian
Hobson's Choice / 7:15PM / Chinese 6
PARRRRTAAAAAAAYYYYY / 9PM--???? / Club TCM
