“The Thin Man” Series Subject of Free Film Series at Lone Star College-Montgomery

Published on: January 27, 2011

This spring, Lone Star College-Montgomery continues its 11th annual Film Series with “The Thin Man,” an award-winning and riveting line-up of movies based on the 1934 detective novel by Dashiell Hammett. But the best plot twist yet is that all films are open to the entire community free of charge!
 
The series, put together and hosted by Gary Brown, professor of government at LSC-Montgomery, is loosely modeled after the critically-acclaimed Rice Film Series.
 
“The goal is to show movies that are ‘off the beaten path’ to film lovers in the community,” said Brown. “Then after viewing, all patrons can engage in an interesting discussion of plot, director’s elements, special effects, underlying themes or meanings, and more.”
 
The Film Series show times are:
 
January 29, 31            The Thin Man
February 5, 7              After the Thin Man
February 12, 14          Another Thin Man
February 19, 21          Shadow of the Thin Man
February 26, 28          Song of the Thin Man

Each film is shown twice; the first date listed is the Saturday showing at 7 p.m., and the second date listed is the Monday showing at 1 p.m. All films will be shown at the LSC-Montgomery campus in the Health Science Center (Building B), Room B102.
