Dave Leamon is is a member of our projection staff.

  • IN TRANSIT – I was riding the Downeaster on the way back from Maine when I saw In Transit had been added to the schedule and I let out the kind of squeal that is never, ever appropriate on public transportation. But what could I do? I love train travel AND Maysles documentaries! Short of a magical incantation that brings Little Edie back from the grave, I can’t think of a more delightful way to celebrate one of the finest filmmakers to ever call Boston home.
  • COLUMBUS – If we’ve ever chatted with you for more than five minutes you know that I’m obsessed with the way transportation (see above) and architecture interact with culture and art especially in mid-century America. (Ask me about Government Center!) So yeah, a strikingly beautiful film starring John Cho AND Parker Posey wrestling with my fave topic? That’s what we in the popcorn industry call a winner.
  • STALKER/SOLARIS Double Feature – Um, duh.
