First Tuesday Film Club:
Established in April 2012 the First Tuesday Film Club presents art and foreign films as well as documentaries once a month at 10:00 AM, 12:00 and 7:00 PM. The response to this “club” whose aim is to simply provide some alternate movies on a regular basis at our regular prices – no dues required – has been very gratifying. Flyers are available at the Lake and a description of each film is included on this website.
There is an advisory committee who assist with the selection of films, help secure special guest lecturers and film discussion leaders and suggest ways to promote the movies in Oak Park, River Forest and the surrounding area. Our current committee includes:
Mary Kay O'Grady
Shirley Johnson (Classic Cinemas)
Your feed-back is important to us. Suggestions are always welcome and can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
"Neruda: It's 1948 and the Cold War has reached Chile. In congress, Senator Pablo Neruda accuses the government of betraying the Communist Party and is swiftly impeached by President González Videla. Police Prefect Oscar Peluchonneau is assigned to arrest the poet. Neruda tries to flee the country with his wife, the painter Delia del Carril, but they are forced into hiding. Inspired by the dramatic events of his new life as a fugitive, Neruda writes his epic collection of poems, "Canto General". Meanwhile, in Europe, the legend of the poet hounded by the policeman grows, and artists led by Pablo Picasso clamor for Neruda's freedom.” Neruda, will be presented on Tuesday, March 7 at 10:00 AM, 12:00 and 7:00 PM. Admission is $6 matinee/senior and $8.50 evening.
