True Gems

No matter how well-regarded a classic film, there are always modern film buffs who have never taken the time to watch it. The Vintage Theatre is looking to change that with its monthly Vintage Classic Movie series, during which it will screen acknowledged but sometimes unappreciated masterpieces. “I think one of the goals we have...is to get a younger generation to experience black-and-white film, or an older production, like an old classic,” explains Craig Bond, Vintage’s artistic director. “So we ask, ‘What are the various films that appeal to us as a group, that perhaps people have never heard about or seen?’”

Tonight’s entry is the Audrey Hepburn classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s, about a flighty New York socialite with a zest for life. Introducing the film and hosting a discussion afterward will be Tony Gault, associate professor of film and media at the University of Denver.

The showing starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Vintage, 1468 Dayton Street in Aurora. Admission Admission is a suggested donation of $5 for students under eighteen and $8 for adults; for more information, visit www.vintagetheatre.com.
