Park Circus supplies films for public screening around the world, with titles for the next four weeks listed on our Now Showing page. Each week we highlight a selection coming up in the next seven days.
It’s fair to say that we’ve gone a little film noir crazy this week, with the re-release of Gilda at selected cinemas – London’s BFI Southbank and Curzon Mayfair, Edinburgh’s Filmhouse and the Irish Film Institute – taking over on Twitter and Facebook.
That’s maybe why we also decided to shout about a screening of another classic film noir, 195o’s In a Lonely Place, at Austria’s Filmarchiv Vienna on Sunday 24 July. It features one of Humphrey Bogart’s finest performances as writer Dixon Steele and bears up to repeated viewings as a complex story unfolds involving Gloria Grahame’s Laurel.
Cork’s Triskel Arts Centre will be screening another memorable Bogey performance between Sunday 24 and Wednesday 27 July, in the recently restored version of John Huston’s The African Queen. Shot on location in Africa, the film centres on river-boat Captain, Charlie (Bogart) and his new passenger, Rose (Katharine Hepburn). Bogart won an Oscar for his performance and audiences around the world have been finding out why during the film’s recent return to cinemas.
Featuring a stunning cast of horror greats – Vincent Price, Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre – alongside a certain Jack Nicholson, Roger Corman’s The Raven swoops into Amsterdam’s Eye Film Institute Netherlands on Wednesday 27 July. As the trailer shows, nobody was taking themselves too seriously during the film’s production:
Finally, back in the UK, the Bo’ness Hippodrome in Scotland will be showing the Frank Capra screwball comedy classic, It Happened One Night, on Thursday 28 July. Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert star as the couple thrown together when she runs away from her father’s choice of husband. Initially thought to be a disaster in the making by Colbert, the film turned out to be a hit and won five Oscars, including Best Actor and Best Actress for the two leads.
