TRIBUTE TO ROBERT ALTMAN - A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION – Mon Nov 27 - 8:30pm On the night of November 20th, the cinema lost one of its finest, a fiercely independent spirit who made movies that lived, breathed and inspired a unique devotion in movie lovers all around the world. Robert Altman’s camera eye was a remarkably delicate and sensitive instrument, seeking out and illuminating the most fleeting beauties and mysteries of being human. Altman gave us images and sounds and sensations we’d never experienced before – think of the sustained euphoria of CALIFORNIA SPLIT, the glorious interchanges between Sissy Spacek and Shelley Duvall in 3 WOMEN, or the heartbreaking snowbound ending of MCCABE AND MRS. MILLER. Altman’s greatest films are uplifting in the best possible way: they open our eyes and ears to the wonders of everyday life. A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION, Altman’s final film, is a poignant and joyous triumph, a lovely celebration of show business, the passage of time, and the glories of the human face. We’ll be showing it on our screen Monday Nov 27 at 8:30pm. It’s the nicest way we can think of to say goodbye.http://www.filmlinc.com/wrt/onsale/prairiehome.html
