The Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund is rewarded; what are you doing this weekend?

Comments Off on The Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund is rewarded; what are you doing this weekend? 30 June 2007

Designs of Hope, a specialized set of fundraisers that take place across America to benefit UNICEF, has come in ahead of schedule in their goal to raise $5 million for orphans with AIDS in five years. This year they held a series of galas which featured the finest in food and fashion, finishing on a high note in Houston, Texas, with a fashion tribute to Audrey Hepburn. Honored at the June 8 event was actress Jane Seymour, for her ongoing humanitarian efforts, and the Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund, for their work with women and children affected by AIDS. There was an Audrey-inspired fashion show, as well. You can read more about the Designs of Hope events here, since this was sadly their last year.

another Audrey Hepburn double feature in San Francisco

Comments Off on another Audrey Hepburn double feature in San Francisco 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.

Comments Off on The Making of a Classic 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!

Comments Off on free Audrey Hepburn films this summer! 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

Comments Off on watch Audrey Hepburn under the stars 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

Comments Off on See Roman Holiday and save an historic theatre 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.
