The Salesman - Art @ The York

I last covered the Art @ the York Theatre program in January when they ran the Beatles 'Eight Days a Week' film.   I walked by the York recently and came across the poster for The Salesman.  The details of the showing are at the Classic Cinemas site .  This showing is twice on April 12th.  Both 1 pm and 7 pm.  If you're looking for them (which...I am doubtful you are!), then.... Here's all of the Art @ The York Theatre posts on the blog .   The team at the York and Classic Cinemas always seem to select interesting movies for this series, but this one?   Over on Rotten Tomatoes, it has a 97% rating . is an Iranian movie.   That won the Academy Award for "Best Foreign Language Film" . will be subtitled, right?  That's A LOT of reading.   While I'd love to say that you can sign me up for might be a bridge too far for me and my movie house visits.  Mr. Culture right here, eh?  I'll go back to mashing my

The Beatles: Eight Days A Week - Art @ York For Feb 2017

Well, well, well.  Now...*this* is a film worth talking about as part of the Art @ York Series at the York Theatre in the Elmhurst City Centre.  'The Beatles: Eight Days A Week - The Touring Years' is the choice from Classic Cinemas for the February 2017 Art @ York Feature.  You can see more here on their site , but it is being shown on Wednesday February 8th at 1 pm and 7 pm.

Check out the Art @ The York archives here on the blog  where I've been covering this series since it began all the way back in June of 2015 .
