Kim Novak To Appear at Egyptian Theatre

Southern Californians might like to be aware the Kim Novak will be making a personal appearance at Hollywood's Egyptian Theatre on July 30, 2010.

Novak will appear in between screenings of PAL JOEY (1957) and BELL, BOOK AND CANDLE (1958), hosted by American Cinematheque.

Later in the weekend the theatre will have screenings of PICNIC (1956), MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT (1959), and VERTIGO (1958).

All titles but VERTIGO will be shown in restored 35mm prints. VERTIGO will be a 70mm print.

The following Tuesday, August 3rd, a boxed set of Novak films will be released on DVD, containing all of the above titles -- with the exception of VERTIGO -- as well as JEANNE EAGELS (1957). It sounds like there will be some nice extras, including featurettes.

I visited the Egyptian for April's Noir City Film Festival and found it a very enjoyable place to see movies.

Not sure...I'm looking at our calendar to see if it might possibly work. I'd enjoy seeing PAL JOEY on a big screen.

Best wishes,
Laura
