Do it. TCM Classic Film Festival.

"Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me. Aren't you?"

Maybe you've seen this stylish ad campaign around town--there's quite a few of the posters on Highland and Franklin, and some bus side advertising for it as well. The TCM Classic Film Festival starts today in Hollywood (Grauman's Chinese Theatre, the Egyptian Theatre, the Roosevelt Hotel Hollywood, and Mann's Chinese 6). It will run April 22 - April 25.

Films at the festival include Breathless, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Sunset Blvd., North by Northwest, The Graduate, Crimes and Misdemeanors, The King of Comedy, and Some Like it Hot, among many others. It sounds like just about the best film festival ever.

Most screenings have a special guest appearance - like Jean-Paul Belmondo at Breathless, Anjelica Houston and Martin Landau at Crimes and Misdemeanors, and Tony Curtis at Some Like it Hot. Awesome.

Most individual screening tickets are $20, discounted 50% with a valid student ID.
