another Audrey Hepburn double feature in San Francisco

No Comments 23 June 2007

The Castro Theatre in San Francisco started 2007 out right with an Audrey Hepburn double feature, and it’s continuing what it started by having yet another back-to-back Audrey double feature in July. This time they’re screening Funny Face and My Fair Lady (along with The Wizard of Oz) as part of a triple feature called “Classic Musical Fashion.” All three films will be preceded by special guest hosts, and audience members are encouraged to dress up!

Funny Face will be introduced by Jim Van Buskirk, who is labeled as a Hepburn Expert on the Castro’s website and most definitely a film expert.

The Making of a Classic

No Comments 17 May 2007

Plus, yet another fun summer outing involving Audrey Hepburn! This time it’s a screening of How to Steal a Million at the Paramount Theatre in Austin, Texas on July 26 and 27. I’ve glanced over their full summer lineup and it is amazing, to say the least. I’m very jealous.

free Audrey Hepburn films this summer!

No Comments 06 May 2007

Free films in a park are nothing new, and I’m sure that they’ve screened Audrey Hepburn films before, but it seems that this summer a lot of her films are being screened. We’ve discussed TCM’s free screenings already, and now the Huntsville Museum in Alabama is joining in on the fun with “Classic Movies in the Park.” From June through August, the museum will screen free films to the public outside on a wall of the museum, and guests are encouraged to make a full picnic of it with lawn chairs, blankets, and picnic baskets. My Fair Lady will be screened on Friday, July 13. For a more complete schedule, go here. And if you’re thinking of going to any of these screenings across the country, can you think of a friend or two that hasn’t seen an Audrey film? This might be the perfect opportunity to make a friend into a fan. 🙂

watch Audrey Hepburn under the stars

No Comments 26 April 2007

If you’re in the Washington, D.C. area or will be this summer, then you might be interested in taking in an Audrey movie under the stars. This year’s Screen on the Green will feature Wait Until Dark on July 30. All movies will start at dusk, which AOL is estimating to be around 8:30 pm. It’s one thing to watch a scary movie in your own house, how creepy would it be to watch in the great, dark outdoors? Make sure to mark this one on your calendars! I’m fairly sure this is free, too.

See Roman Holiday and save an historic theatre

No Comments 16 April 2007

Every year the Los Angeles Conservancy has a “Last Remaining Seat” event, where beautiful, historic theatres in Los Angeles are re-opened to screen classic movies and raise money to keep these theatres in good order. This year Roman Holiday will be screened at the fantastic Los Angeles Theatre in downtown L.A. on May 30th. In the age of ugly, utilitarian box theatres it’s utterly amazing to see such an elaborate building set up to just sit and watch a movie. The ornate detail in every little thing shows just how big a deal it was to go out to the movies, and it’s sad that we’ve lost that charm along the way. If you can make it to the screening, please do! Let us know what it’s like to see a beautiful film in a beautiful setting. Click here for ticket information.

Audrey Hepburn desktops, icons and art!

No Comments 09 February 2007

Some fantastic news for you! The Fabulous Audrey Hepburn now has exclusive, custom- made Audrey Hepburn pop art for your enjoyment. There are also user icons (for message boards and instant messenger programs) and desktops of the special art for you to use, as well. These pieces are not watermarked or in any way stamped with our name, logo, or web address, because I personally think it’s a little tacky. But that doesn’t mean you can turn around and claim it as your own! All I ask is that you give credit where it’s due. If someone tells you they like the piece, just tell them where you got it from. That’s all! If this works well, there will be a lot more art where that came from. To see all of the new art, go to the multimedia page. There are also instructions on how to change a picture to your desktop if you need them. Oh, and if you have any requests of pictures you’d like to see pop art-style, let us know!

Audrey Hepburn film screenings near you; give Audrey a makeover

No Comments 12 January 2007

There’s a few new Audrey film screenings coming up that you might want to know about! First up is the British Film Festival, taking place in Tel Aviv. I know it’s a bit of a commute, but the film festival runs from January 18-27. The Ambassador’s Choice film for this year is none other than Two For the Road. I’m extremely jealous, because Two For the Road just might be my favourite Audrey film ever, and it’s not exactly one you see screened very often. Tom Phillips, the British ambassador to Israel, says he chose the film because of Audrey, firstly, and because it’s just such a fantastic relationship film overall. To learn more about the film festival, go here.

Breakfast – Dinner at Tiffany’s

No Comments 10 January 2007

While it’s not technically dinner at Tiffany’s, from February 26 to March 25, you can have a swank dinner while watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s at Foreign Cinema in San Franciso. Foreign Cinema is a pretty well-known (and well-regarded) restaurant in San Francisco, and I’ve always wanted to give them a try. Now I have the perfect excuse. 😉 If you’re interested in trying this yourself and will be in the Bay area during this time, please note that you must make reservations! You can do so on the website, or by calling (415) 648-7600 after 11 am. It looks like it’ll be loads of fun. I only hope I can keep from crying into my dinner!

Style and Substance, une nouvelle biographie, and more Funny Face

No Comments 06 January 2007

First off, another big thank you to Franklin, who has made us aware of a new French biography on Audrey. Audrey Hepburn, by Christian Dureau, was released November 9 2006, and while there doesn’t seem to be very much information on it (at least on the French Amazon), it is 109 pages and available for €14,16. Judging from the author’s other works, it seems like this biography is pretty barebones (the page count seems to say so, too) and wouldn’t say anything new to the reader. There are also no reviews up anywhere that I can find, so it’s hard to say for sure whether it’s worth it. If my French were a little less rusty, I’d give it a go!
