Comments Off on Tippi Hedren at the KiMo: Appearance and Free Marnie Movie

Tippi Hedren appears in person as the guest with host TCM’s Ben Mankiewicz, at a special screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s Marnie at the KiMo Theatre. Tickets are free, but you need to get yours in advance!

Turner Classic Movies is running a Road to Hollywood Classic Film Festival in multiple cities around the country. They’re bringing that festival to Albuquerque’s KiMo Theatre on April 18 at 7:30 pm, with a screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1964 thriller Marnie, starring Tippi Hedren and Sean Connery.  (They’re both deliciously cool and gorgeous, aren’t they?) The movie will be shown in Hi-Def with Dolby sound.

Better yet, Tippi Hedren will be a special guest during the evening, making an appearance with host Ben Mankiewicz of TCM. The info about the event is at the KiMo website, but to join the Hollywood fun, you need to register in advance here for your free tickets.

The only way to get tickets is from the Turner Classic Film Festival link above. Sadly, Sean Connery will not share the stage. This is just as well, as any appearance by Mr Sexy Voice is likely to make me come over all peculiar.

Tippi Hedren was discovered by Alfred Hitchcock when she was a model, and he cast her in all her icy blondeness in The Birds and then in Marnie. Little known fact (here at Cheap Central, anyway): Hedren is the mother of actress Melanie Griffith. Journalist and news anchor Ben Mankiewicz is the weekend daytime host of Turner Classic Movies.

The Tippi Hedren appearance and free screening of Marnie takes place:

  • When: Thursday April 18, 2013
  • Time: 7:30 pm
  • Where: KiMo Theatre
  • Price: Tickets are free, but register for a pass at the link above.

The KiMo Theatre is located at 423 Central Avenue NW.

Comments Off on Civic Cinema Free: July 27

Enjoy an outdoor movie viewing experience like no other with Civic Cinema —  films shown on a giant screen on the Downtown Civic Plaza! It’s a cool, fun, free family event, just like an old-fashioned drive-in, except it’s a walk-in.

The next City of Albuquerque Civic Cinema movie will be on Friday July 27 and the movie is Back to the Future.  The free movie screening will start at darkness, at approximately 8:30 pm, but it’s wise to arrive early to nab your space. The city will provide seating, but you’re welcome to take your own blankets. Heck you can even take Fido, as long as he’s leashed.

After this movie, the final free Civic Cinema screening for 2012 will be on Friday August 3, so save the date!

Civic Cinema takes place at the Harry E. Kinney Civic Plaza in the heart of downtown Albuquerque.

Free Films on Civic Plaza: Civic Cinema

Comments Off on Free Films on Civic Plaza: Civic Cinema

Enjoy an outdoor movie viewing experience like no other with Civic Cinema — classic films shown on a giant screen on Civic Plaza! This should be a cool, fun, free family event.

On Friday, June 26 (2009), grab the kids and the popcorn to enjoy a free movie, West Side Story, under the stars downtown. It’s the classic musical about the Sharks and the Jets: the story of Romeo and Juliet set in the 1950s gang era, when all gang members spontaneously broke into choreographed dance routines. Entertainment for the whole family!

The city will provide seating and tables, so you’re free to bring a picnic (no glass containers or alcohol), but you’re welcome to bring your own blankets and chairs if you so desire. Heck you can even bring Fido, as long as he’s leashed.

The movie will start at approximately 9:00pm, depending on darkness. Ah, it brings back memories of the old drive-in days, doesn’t it?

The screening itself is free, but expect to pay for parking.

Civic Plaza is located in the heart of downtown Albuquerque, at Third St NW and Marquette Ave NW.
