CINEMA ON ICE
A FROSTY Film Series at the Historic Camelot Theatre
The Summer Heat Film Series was so much fun we thought we’d follow it up with some more weather-inspired cinematic cheer. Get ready for the Cinema on Ice, with Deserted Films!
Post holiday blues? Does the chill in the air make you miss shoveling your driveway? Come get cozy at The Palm Springs Cultural Center's Historic Camelot Theatre with a series of films set against a wintry backdrop.
We know how funny it is to our snowbird friends when the denizens of Palm Springs pout about the cold! So let’s celebrate it instead! We are told that a selection of warm and/or boozy beverages will be available to help take the edge (!) off.
Screenings will feature live introductions and thematic film ephemera provided by Melissa Dollman and Devin Orgeron of Deserted Films.
Dr. Zhivago (1965) David Lean (197 mins.)
Did you know that the first feature film shown at the Cameolt when it opened in February, 1967 was a magnificent 70mm presentation of David Lean’s Dr. Zhivago (1965)? The special screening was a star-studded United Fund benefit. This is a sweeping, epic romance and a kind of film that simply isn’t made anymore. The big screen is required! Omar Sharif, Julie Christie, Geraldine Chaplin, Tom Courtenay, Rod Steiger, and Alec Guinness star. We will have a proper INTERMISSION during which Deserted Films will show something fun.
