Denver FilmCenter/Colfax: Join the Tattered Cover Book Store, UCD’s College of Arts & Media, Colorado Public Radio, and the new Denver FilmCenter/Colfax (in the Lowenstein CulturePlex, next door to the Tattered Cover Colfax Avenue) for an exploration of the world of classic movies, hosted by Colorado Public Radio film critic Howie Movshovitz at the Denver FilmCenter/Colfax. All programs begin at 2:00 pm. Admission is free, but tickets are required from the box office. Tickets are available one hour before screening. Parking is avilable in the parking lot off of Elizabeth or Columbine Streets. This month we’ll see the 1931 René Claire classic À Nous la Liberté. “They” say that Chaplin stole the beginning of Modern Times from this film by René Claire. Claire’s response was to say that if Chaplin did that, he (Claire) was honored. Two men become friends in prison; later they become friends on the outside, but it’s not so simple. The film is funny, satirical and political, not unlike Chaplin.
