Film Scene: Week’s screenings include favorite classics, modern surprises

24 May 2017

This week’s batch of what we here at Film Scene call “alternative cinema” fare includes two movies that will sound quite familiar to anyone out there who read last week’s column, for two distinctly different reasons.

There are, quite simply, too many specialty screenings going on this week to delve very deeply into any of them — but here’s a bird’s eye view of what’s being offered.

 

Film Scene: Options include Flannery O’Connor doc, live opera, short film fest and more
