I've never seen a movie there myself, but I remember a couple other posters on this forum mentioning that they had significant problems with the sound there. Specifically, I remember mfunk talking about how he couldn't understand much of Inherent Vice's dialogue at its premiere and hearthesilence mentioning that they had (or may have had, they/I wasn't certain) similar trouble with The Other Side Of The Wind.

Dropping $75 a ticket for a gala screening of Inherent Vice there was sort of like ordering the porterhouse at Olive Garden.

If you're hard of hearing or even just concerned about being able to hear the film, they're almost certain to have accessibility devices for hard of hearing patrons if you call ahead and ask. Not sure if the fact that they're festival premiers might impact that or not. Also might just depend on where you're sitting in the theater, only been there once.

Film Forum Winter programming. Some real cool things in there, including the great news that some of the Kino Hungarian acquisitions will begin trickling out (I know My 20th Century’s happening too but that one’s already been available elsewhere)

I was given a heads up by one of the programmers that they were doing a Romanian Retrospective. It’s great to see it officially programmed. The Scorsese documentaries being screened is wonderful too. And Alec Guinness at Ealing. Terrific winter calendar

Most psyched to see MEPHISTO again, and hopes are raised for a Blu-Ray to follow.

There is a blu-ray to follow, also for Colonel Redl. Hanussen is the one that still remains elusive.

The Philadelphia Story (which I've never seen, believe it or not) is screening at the United Palace Theater in The Heights on Monday, Feb. 10. Been living in Washington Heights for years; walked past this historic building a million times but have never been in it. Not a bad idea for a visit. Just wish they had more than 4 or 5 film screenings a year!
