Movie group where I volunteer sponsoring Q&A on excellent movies — here’s another

Go to to register for this discussion and to stream hard-to-find movies. Before the major water main break that shut down New Plaza Cinema’s usual weekend theatre, followed almost immediately by COVID-19, our group would be thrilled if we had a physical audience close to 200. These online events are even more successful as they’re not limited by geography.

Even if you’re not interested in this particular (free) event, do put your email on our distribution list for future news. We keep your information private.

We are looking forward to the The Last Picture Show discussion on May 31 at 4 p.m. Eastern Time.   

[Once you register at our website, y]ou will receive the  Zoom log in instructions on Friday, May 29.

The Last Picture Show is one of the key films of the American cinema renaissance of the seventies. Set during the early fifties, in the loneliest Texas nowheresville to ever dust up a movie screen, this aching portrait of a dying West, adapted from Larry McMurtry’s novel, focuses on the daily shuffles of three futureless teens—the enigmatic Sonny (Timothy Bottoms), the wayward jock Duane (Jeff Bridges), and the desperate-to-be-adored rich girl Jacy (Cybil Shepherd)—and the aging lost souls who bump up against them in the night like drifting tumbleweeds, including Cloris Leachman’s lonely housewife and Ben Johnson’s grizzled movie-house proprietor. Featuring evocative black-and-white imagery and profoundly felt performances, this hushed depiction of crumbling American values remains the pivotal film in the career of the invaluable director and film historian Pe ter Bogdanovich.
