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.
Snowpiercer (2013) Bong Joon-ho (126 mins.)
Chris Evans, Song Kang-ho, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Go Ah-sung, John Hurt, and Ed Harris star in this exciting and imaginative adaptation of the French “climate fiction” graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand and Jean-Marc Rochette. Set in 2031 (which isn’t that far away!), the film imagines a post-apocalyptic frozen world where earth’s remining inhabitants circle the globe aboard the Snowpiercer train. This series-spawning film will keep you on the edge of your seat. It also gets you thinking about class… and the climate. Best enjoyed with a warm (or stiff) beverage.
Friday 2.16 Snowpiercer (2013) Bong Joon-ho
