Rosenquist’s involvement with our community included his tenure as Counselor to the Board of Trustees, an advisory role at the Tampa Museum of Art. James Rosenquist: In Memoriam features 12 prints, many large-scale, from the Museum’s permanent collection. Spanning 25 years of printmaking from 1975-2000, this intimate exhibition highlights the vibrant, graphic style that defines Rosenquist’s artistic legacy.     [less-]

The Graduate

06-25-2017

Presented by Tampa Theatre at Tampa Theatre, Tampa
Upcoming Dates: Sun, Jun 25 @ 3:00 pm

Not many movies manage to be timeless while remaining grounded in the time of their creation. The Graduate just feels like 1967: a transitional moment in American culture between the end of the post-WW2 boom and the rise of the hippie counterculture. It was a transitional moment in American movies, too, and it’s full of radical filmmaking techniques — crash zooms and shocking framing. But the subject of The Graduate is a transition we all undergo; Dustin Hoffman plays a college grad in...

Not many movies manage to be timeless while remaining grounded in the time of their creation. The Graduate just feels like 1967: a transitional moment in American culture between the end of the post-WW2 boom and the rise of the hippie counterculture. It was a transitional moment in American movies, too, and it’s full of radical filmmaking techniques — crash zooms and shocking framing. But the subject of The Graduate is a transition we all undergo; Dustin Hoffman plays a college grad in the delicate shift from adolescence to adulthood, torn between his feelings for his girlfriend’s mother (Anne Bancroft as the famous Mrs. Robinson) and his fear of the future. It’s about being told what to do, then suddenly having to decide for ourselves; the people we fall in love with, when we’re not supposed to; all the mistakes we make, and apologize for, and sometimes make again.

Doors and bar open at 2:00pm Immediately after the film, USF film professor Harriet Deer will lead a short discussion of The Graduate and an audience Q&A. The session is included with film admission. The Summer Classics Movie Series is presented by Bank of America.  [less-]

TECO Public Art Gallery presents Marilyn Binder Silverman showcasing new paintings in her first Solo Exhibition in downtown Tampa. Titled ‘Cityscape”, Marilyn is showing 19 new oil and acrylic paintings opening May 1 - June 30. This exhibition was inspired by a recent trip to Chicago and the, “stunning architectural design that resonates throughout the city. The reflections of the buildings, the angles of the structures and the variations in light, present a constantly changing landscape that I wanted to explore further. In New York City, I visited the Guggenheim Museum where I was captivated by the architectural lines that never end. Having lived in a big city, these connections inform my practice.” Marilyn is a resident of South Tampa. She says here at home, “I focused on the beauty of the buildings in Tampa Bay. Our city possesses a beauty in the architecture that makes up our urban environment.  I enjoy refining complex designs into rudimentary forms using interesting and vivid colors. The emphasis is on painting the perspective of the buildings in my abstract style.” She paints in oil and acrylic and her style and intense hues reflect her free spirit and enthusiasm for life. She sees the world in vibrant colors and she expresses the spontaneity of energy and color that appear all around us. “I have one word of advice – When out in the city, don’t look down at the sidewalk. Look up at the Cityscape and experience the drama of the world that surrounds you.” [less-]

All Quiet on the Western Front

07-02-2017

Presented by Tampa Theatre at Tampa Theatre, Tampa
Upcoming Dates: Sun, Jul 02 @ 3:00 pm
When All Quiet on the Western Front opened in 1930, Variety called it a “harrowing, gruesome, morbid tale of war, so compelling in its realism, bigness and repulsiveness.” Adolf Hitler banned it in Germany, believing that it drummed up anti-war sentiment, and even before its banning, the Nazis sent brownshirts into theatres to disrupt and shut down screenings; knowing he would need to call more young men to war, the last thing Hitler wanted was for Germans to remember war’s true...

When All Quiet on the Western Front opened in 1930, Variety called it a “harrowing, gruesome, morbid tale of war, so compelling in its realism, bigness and repulsiveness.” Adolf Hitler banned it in Germany, believing that it drummed up anti-war sentiment, and even before its banning, the Nazis sent brownshirts into theatres to disrupt and shut down screenings; knowing he would need to call more young men to war, the last thing Hitler wanted was for Germans to remember war’s true cost. Already famous as a book, All Quiet showed the horror of World War I with unblinking directness. It follows new soldiers from their romantic enlistment, through their brutal combat, to their shattering return home — for those who can return. It is difficult to imagine the impact it might have had on audiences in 1930, less inured to violence and mayhem on screen than we are; even seeing it now, it’s a gut punch. [less-]

The Sting

07-09-2017

Presented by Tampa Theatre at Tampa Theatre, Tampa
Upcoming Dates: Sun, Jul 09 @ 3:00 pm
Often in the shadow of that other Robert Redford-Paul Newman two-hander, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting is — by any measure — one of the most successful movies of all time. It was nominated for ten Academy Awards and won seven, tying other Hollywood epics like Lawrence of Arabia and Star Wars. It was a gigantic box office smash: the 22nd highest grossing movie ever.

Often in the shadow of that other Robert Redford-Paul Newman two-hander, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting is — by any measure — one of the most successful movies of all time. It was nominated for ten Academy Awards and won seven, tying other Hollywood epics like Lawrence of Arabia and Star Wars. It was a gigantic box office smash: the 22nd highest grossing movie ever. It led to a nationwide revival of ragtime music (the main theme, Scott Joplin’s “The Entertainer,” made it to No. 3 on the Billboard charts a mere 71 years after its first release). And, of course, it reunited two of the biggest stars of the 1970s, sharing the big screen for what would be the final time. But it almost didn’t happen! Trivia time: Rob Cohen, who would go on to direct The Fast and the Furious, was working as a low-level script reader when he found it in a slush pile (the heap of unsolicited screenplays that wannabe screenwriters send to Hollywood agencies). He made a bet with his boss: either a studio will buy this movie as “an award-winning, major-cast, major-director film” or he’d be fired; Universal picked up the rights later that afternoon. The Sting hinges on an incredibly complicated horse-betting scam being run by two slick con-men trying to simultaneously avoid getting snuffed by another gangster (Robert Shaw) and getting away from the cops, all while making a bunch of money besides. A beautifully appointed period piece, delicately plotted and dripping with charisma, it’s an all-time American classic. [less-]

Saboteur showcases the masterful Alfred Hitchcock already at the peak of his powers. Robert Cummings plays Barry Kane, a factory worker falsely accused of starting a fire at his aircraft plant, an act of sabotage that kills one of his friends. He believes he knows who really committed the crime, but his attempt to clear his name and stop the true villain will take him across the country and into constant mortal danger. Contrary to the way films were usually made at the time and not yet a distinctive trademark for this filmmaker, Saboteur was shot largely on location, and Hitchcock’s innovative use of composite shots and groundbreaking camera trickery enraptures and disorients the audience. Doors and bar open at 2:00pm Immediately after the film, USF film professor Harriet Deer will lead a short discussion of Saboteur and an audience Q&A. The session is included with film admission.

The Graduate

06-25-2017

Presented by Tampa Theatre at Tampa Theatre, Tampa
Upcoming Dates: Sun, Jun 25 @ 3:00 pm

Not many movies manage to be timeless while remaining grounded in the time of their creation. The Graduate just feels like 1967: a transitional moment in American culture between the end of the post-WW2 boom and the rise of the hippie counterculture. It was a transitional moment in American movies, too, and it’s full of radical filmmaking techniques — crash zooms and shocking framing. But the subject of The Graduate is a transition we all undergo; Dustin Hoffman plays a college grad in...

Not many movies manage to be timeless while remaining grounded in the time of their creation. The Graduate just feels like 1967: a transitional moment in American culture between the end of the post-WW2 boom and the rise of the hippie counterculture. It was a transitional moment in American movies, too, and it’s full of radical filmmaking techniques — crash zooms and shocking framing. But the subject of The Graduate is a transition we all undergo; Dustin Hoffman plays a college grad in the delicate shift from adolescence to adulthood, torn between his feelings for his girlfriend’s mother (Anne Bancroft as the famous Mrs. Robinson) and his fear of the future. It’s about being told what to do, then suddenly having to decide for ourselves; the people we fall in love with, when we’re not supposed to; all the mistakes we make, and apologize for, and sometimes make again.

Doors and bar open at 2:00pm Immediately after the film, USF film professor Harriet Deer will lead a short discussion of The Graduate and an audience Q&A. The session is included with film admission. The Summer Classics Movie Series is presented by Bank of America.  [less-]

TECO Public Art Gallery presents Marilyn Binder Silverman showcasing new paintings in her first Solo Exhibition in downtown Tampa. Titled ‘Cityscape”, Marilyn is showing 19 new oil and acrylic paintings opening May 1 - June 30. This exhibition was inspired by a recent trip to Chicago and the, “stunning architectural design that resonates throughout the city. The reflections of the buildings, the angles of the structures and the variations in light, present a constantly changing landscape that I wanted to explore further. In New York City, I visited the Guggenheim Museum where I was captivated by the architectural lines that never end. Having lived in a big city, these connections inform my practice.” Marilyn is a resident of South Tampa. She says here at home, “I focused on the beauty of the buildings in Tampa Bay. Our city possesses a beauty in the architecture that makes up our urban environment.  I enjoy refining complex designs into rudimentary forms using interesting and vivid colors. The emphasis is on painting the perspective of the buildings in my abstract style.” She paints in oil and acrylic and her style and intense hues reflect her free spirit and enthusiasm for life. She sees the world in vibrant colors and she expresses the spontaneity of energy and color that appear all around us. “I have one word of advice – When out in the city, don’t look down at the sidewalk. Look up at the Cityscape and experience the drama of the world that surrounds you.” [less-]

All Quiet on the Western Front

Presented by Tampa Theatre at Tampa Theatre, Tampa
Upcoming Dates: Sun, Jul 02 @ 3:00 pm
When All Quiet on the Western Front opened in 1930, Variety called it a “harrowing, gruesome, morbid tale of war, so compelling in its realism, bigness and repulsiveness.” Adolf Hitler banned it in Germany, believing that it drummed up anti-war sentiment, and even before its banning, the Nazis sent brownshirts into theatres to disrupt and shut down screenings; knowing he would need to call more young men to war, the last thing Hitler wanted was for Germans to remember war’s true...

When All Quiet on the Western Front opened in 1930, Variety called it a “harrowing, gruesome, morbid tale of war, so compelling in its realism, bigness and repulsiveness.” Adolf Hitler banned it in Germany, believing that it drummed up anti-war sentiment, and even before its banning, the Nazis sent brownshirts into theatres to disrupt and shut down screenings; knowing he would need to call more young men to war, the last thing Hitler wanted was for Germans to remember war’s true cost. Already famous as a book, All Quiet showed the horror of World War I with unblinking directness. It follows new soldiers from their romantic enlistment, through their brutal combat, to their shattering return home — for those who can return. It is difficult to imagine the impact it might have had on audiences in 1930, less inured to violence and mayhem on screen than we are; even seeing it now, it’s a gut punch. [less-]

The Sting

Presented by Tampa Theatre at Tampa Theatre, Tampa
Upcoming Dates: Sun, Jul 09 @ 3:00 pm
Often in the shadow of that other Robert Redford-Paul Newman two-hander, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting is — by any measure — one of the most successful movies of all time. It was nominated for ten Academy Awards and won seven, tying other Hollywood epics like Lawrence of Arabia and Star Wars. It was a gigantic box office smash: the 22nd highest grossing movie ever.

Often in the shadow of that other Robert Redford-Paul Newman two-hander, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting is — by any measure — one of the most successful movies of all time. It was nominated for ten Academy Awards and won seven, tying other Hollywood epics like Lawrence of Arabia and Star Wars. It was a gigantic box office smash: the 22nd highest grossing movie ever. It led to a nationwide revival of ragtime music (the main theme, Scott Joplin’s “The Entertainer,” made it to No. 3 on the Billboard charts a mere 71 years after its first release). And, of course, it reunited two of the biggest stars of the 1970s, sharing the big screen for what would be the final time. But it almost didn’t happen! Trivia time: Rob Cohen, who would go on to direct The Fast and the Furious, was working as a low-level script reader when he found it in a slush pile (the heap of unsolicited screenplays that wannabe screenwriters send to Hollywood agencies). He made a bet with his boss: either a studio will buy this movie as “an award-winning, major-cast, major-director film” or he’d be fired; Universal picked up the rights later that afternoon. The Sting hinges on an incredibly complicated horse-betting scam being run by two slick con-men trying to simultaneously avoid getting snuffed by another gangster (Robert Shaw) and getting away from the cops, all while making a bunch of money besides. A beautifully appointed period piece, delicately plotted and dripping with charisma, it’s an all-time American classic. [less-]

Saboteur showcases the masterful Alfred Hitchcock already at the peak of his powers. Robert Cummings plays Barry Kane, a factory worker falsely accused of starting a fire at his aircraft plant, an act of sabotage that kills one of his friends. He believes he knows who really committed the crime, but his attempt to clear his name and stop the true villain will take him across the country and into constant mortal danger. Contrary to the way films were usually made at the time and not yet a distinctive trademark for this filmmaker, Saboteur was shot largely on location, and Hitchcock’s innovative use of composite shots and groundbreaking camera trickery enraptures and disorients the audience. Doors and bar open at 2:00pm Immediately after the film, USF film professor Harriet Deer will lead a short discussion of Saboteur and an audience Q&A. The session is included with film admission.
