New York theater to screen not-to-be-missed cruise movies
Monday 15 August 2011
If you're itching to see more of the ocean this summer but can't quite bring yourself to cast off, perhaps watching some of the world's most classic ocean-going movies is the next best thing?
From August 26-30, the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York is giving over the whole week to the glamour of ocean travel, screening some film classics which perfectly capture life at sea.
Held at the group's Walter Reade Theater, between Broadway and Amsterdam, movie-goers will be treated to five days of shows such as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, The Lady Eve, Shall We Dance and Royal Wedding.
Of couse, such a season wouldn't be complete without the addition of the most famous cruise ship movie of all time, James Cameron's Titanic, which will be screened in a rare 70mm presentation.
Buffs will also be treated to Ocean Liners in Fact, Fiction and On Screen, an illustrated lecture by Bill Miller, who is a regular on board cruise ships operated by Cunard, which is sponsoring the season.
Tickets can be booked at http://www.filmlinc.com/films/series/cinematic-passages-ocean-liners-on-screen.
If you want to recreate the season from home, these are the films scheduled to be screened:
- The Princess Comes Across
- Shall We Dance
