    Older classic movies, back when movies were good. Film noir, Marx Brothers, Humphrey Bogart, Jimmy Stewart.
  1. Four people are following this group chat. All we need is one more TCM Backlot member in the Twin Cities and we can become an official local chapter of TCM Backlot. Surely there must be at least one more out there in the Twin Cities! Minneapolis/St. Paul is a great town for the arts. I know there's lots of classic film fans here. I'm going to the Trylon Cinema this afternoon to see "La Dolce Vita". I'm looking forward to seeing it, as I never have before.
  2. What films would you like featured on Silent Sundays?

    I'd like to see "Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans" on Silent Sundays. And also Charlie Chaplin.
  3. Thanks for doing that TCMary96. I went to the Treasure of the Sierra Madre yesterday afternoon, at Rosedale. There were only four other people in the audience. I asked those four people if any of them were TCM Backlot members? anyone interested in joining TCM Backlot? None of them showed much interest. So it might take a little longer to get our fifth person, like you say. But I still have no doubt that fifth person is out there somewhere.
  4. I'm heading to the 2:00 showing at Rosedale now. I'll try to find others with Backlot also.
  5. Treasure of the Sierra Madre is playing on Wednesday? I thought it was Tuesday. - Clark
  6. Trylon Cinema 2820 E 33rd St Minneapolis, MN 55406 Weekend after this coming, they're showing "The Big Sleep", with Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall.
  7. I Just Watched...

    ..."After the Thin Man". I enjoyed TCM's New Year's Eve showings of all the Thin Man pictures! They sure are fun movies to watch. William Powell and Myrna Loy worked very well together. I found it a bit hard to follow, however. It's not the kind of film you can step out of the room for few minutes now and again, and expect to keep up with it.
  8. Next weekend the Trylon is showing "All About Eve". I'll put that on my calendar to go to a showing. That's one of my favorite Bette Davis movies.
  9. Hi TCMary. Yes, just one and we can became an official Backlot chapter. I'm hoping that one more person comes along before the big screen event next month. Then we can plan on a get together to see it.
  10. I Just Watched...

    "Caged", with Eleanor Powell in the lead role as the young woman in prison for the first time. Agnes Moorehead turns in another splendid performance as the head of the prison. I had never heard of it before, but I'm glad I got a chance to see it. I liked it very much.
  11. I went to the showing of "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" yesterday afternoon, at 2pm. I hadn't seen the movie for many years and was surprised to see it's aged very well. It was quite a very good movie. I was only a bit disappointed there weren't more people there. I believe Sunday afternoons a lot of people like to watch football games, so I'm guessing that's partly why the turnout was low. I really liked the TCM presentation of the movie. Tiffany Vazquez did her standard wonderful job with the introduction of the movie, as well as the follow-up at the end. I'm looking forward to next month's big screen classic! Hopefully by then we'll have enough people to form an official Twin Cities TCM Backlot local chapter.
  12. TCM Big Screen Classics is showing "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner", in the Twin Cities at the following theaters, dates and times.

  13. I'm planning to go to a local showing of the TCM Big Screen Classics' showing of "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" this coming week. I'm sure there will be plenty of other Twin Cities classic movie fans there.
  14. We need five people to make an official local chapter of TCM Backlot. Hopefully others here in the Twin Cities will step up and show interest.
  15. I didn't see a Minneapolis/St. Paul local chapter. There must be lots of people in the Twin Cities area that are big classic movie fans. Let's get together and create a new local chapter for the area, if there isn't already.
