Vitagraph Films 360 presents CINEMA ‘62 A-GO-GO – a virtual multimedia extravaganza for film-lovers based on the new book Cinema ’62: The Greatest Year at the Movies by Stephen Farber and Michael McClellan. This unique virtual experience is more than a book talk, more than a Q&A, more than an interview!

In a variety show format, CINEMA ‘62 A-GO-GO re-examines 1962 in film, music, and everything in between as we delve into the cultural context of this pivotal year in cinema – with special guests, cocktails of the era, major amounts of music, prophetic politics… and even a little dancing. Join us and be enthralled by how much this year continues to resonate with today through some of the most prescient and progressive motion pictures ever made! Our itinerary involves surprising secrets from behind the screen, songs the American public pushed up the pop charts, and so much more!
