BRAND NEW 35MM PRINT TO PLAY AT THE HP LOVECRAFT FILM FESTIVAL 9/16/2011
I am proud to announce a screening of a brand new, restored 35mm print of Berkeley Square at the 2011 H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival® in Los Angeles, California, on Friday, September 16. Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive.
It will play at the classic Warner Grand Theater, which opened its doors in 1931.
The grandson of director Frank Lloyd will introduce the picture and talk about his granddad's favorite, which was also H.P. Lovecraft's favorite--he watched it four times, and it inspired him to write his own classic time-traveler possession tale, "The Shadow Out of Time".
I will read Lovecraft's review of the movie (from a letter to J. Vernon Shea in 1934) before the screening.
See it as it was meant to be seen: on the big silver screen, in a gorgeous art deco period theater, with a crowd of like-minded folks.

PS-I don't know if there are any plans to release it on video. However, the fact that a print exists means it could happen.
The Internet gave everyone a voice-everyone has chosen to use that voice to bitch about movies.
