This weekend at the Trylon microcinema: Sidney Lumet’s brilliant, Oscar-winning Network. Sponsored by the Minnesota Chapter of the Society for Professional Journalists and part of our All The News That Fits (In Two Hours) series in June.
From Roger Ebert: “[Network] caused a sensation in 1976. It was nominated for 10 Oscars, won four (Finch, Dunaway, supporting actress Beatrice Straight, [and screenwriter Paddy] Chayefsky), and stirred up much debate about the decaying values of television. Seen a quarter-century later, it is like prophecy. When Chayefsky created Howard Beale, could he have imagined Jerry Springer, Howard Stern and the World Wrestling Federation?”
Showtimes: Friday and Saturday nights, 7:00 and 9:15, Sunday at 5:00 and 7:15. Get your tickets at Trylon.org.
Next week: Crispin Glover Monday and Tuesday at the Heights Theatre, The Ghastly Love of Johnny X at Trylon Premieres on Monday and Tuesday, and Axe Giant: The Wrath of Paul Bunyan on Wednesday at the Trylon.
