First Tuesday Film Club:
Over the past several months we have spoken to and met with a number of movie goers encouraging us to offer an art/specialty movie once every month. With that in mind, the Lake Theatre presents an art, foreign, documentary, specialty, or classic movie on the first Tuesday of every month.
We have formed an advisory committee to assist with the selection of films, to help secure special guest lecturers and film discussion leaders, and suggest ways to spread the word throughout Oak Park, River Forest and the surrounding area. Our current committee currently includes:
Mary Kay O'Grady
Shirley Johnson (Classic Cinemas)
"Boudu Saved From Drowning” - Boudu, a tramp, jumps into the Seine. He is rescued by Mr Lestingois, a gentle and good bookseller, who gives shelter to him. Mrs Lestingois and the maid Anne-Marie (Mr Lestingois' mistress) are far from delighted, for Boudu is lazy, dirty and salacious. “Boudu Saved From Drowning", will be presented on Tuesday, August 6 at 12:00 and 7:00 p.m. Admission is $6 matinee/senior and $8.50 evening.
Art dan la Rue ANEW (Art in the Streets) will be celebrated in downtown Oak Park on August 6 from Noon to 9:00 p.m. You can immerse yourself in French culture for a full day of art, food, wine, music demonstrations and more in downtown Oak Park.
