It’s a ways off yet, but fans of such classics as “Raging Bull,” “The Great Escape” and “Some Like It Hot,” should mark their calendars now to ready themselves for the rare opportunity to see those movies on the big screen in August.
The Grand Cinema is bringing that distinguished trio and three others of similar cinematic stature to Tacoma to mark the 90th anniversary of United Artists, the studio that made all of them. During the week of Aug. 1, the Grand will play “Raging Bull,” “Midnight Cowboy” and “The Great Escape.” Then the following week, beginning Aug. 8, the lineup will be “The Pink Panther,” “Some Like It Hot” and “From Russia With Love,” perhaps the greatest of the Connery Bond movies.
Speaking for myself, I can’t wait to see De Niro again in one of his best roles ever. Hey, his Oscar was DESERVED! And that’s no “Bull.”
