NOSFA: 1992 - 2013
Warm greetings from the North of Superior Film Association! Welcome back for our incredible 22nd season of operation!
We wish to thank our loyal patrons for your enduring support. Season # 21 was another successful venture, thanks in part not only to some excellent turn-outs and positive reception for titles including Anna Karenina, the first NOSFA film to sell out its early show for a regular Thursday night screening since we arrived at SilverCity, but also thanks to the triumphant anniversary for the Northwest Film Fest. The season concluded in buoyant fashion, courtesy of the enthusiastic reception to our invigorating finale, The Sapphires.
For Season # 22, certain components remain constant. Memberships remain at the bargain-basement rate of $10.00, the same rate from Year # 1. (Where else would one find a fee that remains incredibly impervious to inflation, change of venues, and economic ebb and flow for over 20 years?) Admissions also remain the same at $6.00 for members and $9.00 for non-members. The new screening times introduced last season also remain the same at 6:30 pm and 8:30 pm (more or less, dependent upon running time.) While this change did not quite get 100% approval, they were so well received overall by the general membership that those screening times will remain in effect.
We hope to have two theatres for kick-off, thus providing a little more freedom of choice for patrons. Should we have the two theatres, then we can make a special offer: if you buy your membership and a ticket for the early screening, you get a free ticket for the other film at its late screening at the season kick-off
only. And yes, the usual parade of bodies will ensue after the early screenings to exit and re-enter the theatre for the later shows. This is necessary to file accurate box office reports.
We are excited by our season kick-off double-header, featuring Richard Linklater's Before Midnight, his relationship trilogy featuring Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke that began amazingly back in 1995 with Before Sunrise, followed up nine years later with 2004's Before Sunset. Another nine years have past in Before Midnight where we now find our couple having had kids and entering middle age. Midnight is paired up with Morgan Neville's hotly-received, award-winning 20 Feet from Stardom that tells the fascinating story of the highs and lows of those talented but faceless back-up singers who work in the shadows of Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen and other stars.
At the time of this writing, we are awaiting confirmation on our remaining autumn dates: October 24, November 7th and November 14th.
Please download, print and fill out the new membership form (no tech glitches we hope) and bring to the theatre.
PLEASE PRINT CLEARLY!!! This is especially important for email addresses that sometimes bounce back or disappear into cyberspace during mass communiqués. Printing and filling out the form would greatly assist us in processing memberships on a busy opening night. With any luck, we will have box office open by roughly 5:30 pm.
We look forward to seeing you, Thursday, September 19th at SilverCity!
