Projected @ Radio Radio

This is more like it. Tomorrow night at Radio Radio will be the first of an eight part film series presented by IMOCA.

Projected is a series of highly-regarded contemporary films rarely seen in Indianapolis. The lineup itself looks impressive. There is s good mix of what looks to be drama, suspense, comedy, domestic and foreign films. Kudos to Radio Radio, easily my favorite music/World Cup viewing venue in Indy for opening up their doors to do this.

Tomorrow night's film is a French murder mystery, musical, comedy 8 Women. The Preojected site describes it -

A delightful murder mystery by director Francois Ozon. Not only does this film have a feel of an Agatha Christie story, it also breaks into musical numbers throughout making each scene a surprise. And what a cast! Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Huppert, Virginie Ledoyen, Ludivine Sagnier, and more. Runtime: 111 minutes.

The show viewing is only $3. And the bar will be open. I am intrigued and excited to see what kind of crowd this brings out. I have only seen two of the films on the announced list, The Happiness of the Katakuri's and Vertical Ray of the Sun. And if the remaining films on the list are as interesting as those this should be a special treat for Indianapolis cinephiles.

Hopefully word of mouth spreads, and this draws a good enough crowd to be a seasonal series.
