Re: I WAKE UP DREAMING 2014

First, I'd like to thank ChiO for not only making the trip west from Chicago for ALL TEN days and nights of I WAKE UP DREAMING 2014, but for his wonderfully incisive commentary on the festival itself here on The Oasis. His cogent remarks and observations, delivered in his customary brilliant manner ...

Dennis Harvey has written a pretty terrific overview of this year's fest which appears
in this morning's San Francisco Bay Guardian. Three days and counting...

Re: I WAKE UP DREAMING 2014

Hey, thanks for posting this, ChiO! In the midst of all the craziness surrounding this particular series, I neglected to do so myself! There's so much here that I'm really stoked about bringing to a theatrical audience. When was the last time a 1949 Bowery Boys movie played anywhere? And that goes f...

Re: BIG Benefit Fundraiser for my I WAKE UP DREAMING noir fest!

Hi KingRat, thanks! From what I could learn online the Palm Springs fest runs from May 8 - 11 this year. You'd
probably be better served by a trip to San Francisco later that month instead!

BIG Benefit Fundraiser for my I WAKE UP DREAMING noir fest!

Hey Everyone! It's been quite a while since I last checked in, and this seems like a great chance to slow to a stop for a moment and let my friends at the Oasis know what happening at the Roxie in San Francisco! On March 26 we're staging a benefit fund- raiser for my ongoing annual film noir festiva...

Re: Welcome to Margaret Talbot, Our Guest on 11/4 & 11/5

Hi Margaret - It's Elliot from the Roxie Theater in San Francisco stopping by to say hi! For those who may not recall, Margaret was to be our special in-theater guest at the Roxie this past March on the closing night of our annual Pre-Code festival -- a special tribute to Lyle Talbot! All the arrang...

Re: Dewey's I WAKE UP DREAMING 2013 at the Roxie

Hey ChiO, that's incredible! Very flattering that your pal is traveling all this way for one weekend! But what a weekend! And he gets to see (as do you) those Woolrich gems on FILM -- Black Angel and Night Has A Thousand Eyes are coming to us in beautiful archival 35mm prints directly from Universal...

Re: Dewey's I WAKE UP DREAMING 2013 at the Roxie

Chi-O, thanks for posting! Can't wait for your arrival and the festivities to begin! This has been a typically frustrating and difficult show to assemble, but now that it's done, I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. A number of films in the line-up are ones that I've wanted to play for ...

ROMAN POLANSKI LIVE via SKYPE @ THE ROXIE

This past weekend the Roxie Theater in San Francisco played host to legendary filmmaker ROMAN POLANSKI. And of course, the only way this could be accomplished was via a LIVE telephone hook-up from Paris where Mr. Polanski is finishing work on a new film. And the reasons stem from the legal entanglem...

Re: Someone's having a birthday!

Thanks ever so much, Oasis friends!!! ChiO and Lynn -- I'm looking forward to seeing you at the Roxie! Maven -- didn't I hear you say something about making a trek out here sometime in May? I hope the beloved Roxie stays put long enough (it's been standing in that one spot for 104 years!) for every ...

Re: BIG PRE-CODE SERIES AT THE ROXIE IN SF!!

Maven, I love it that you simply can't remember the date of the big Noir show!! It starts Friday, May 10 and runs for two weeks! I'm about 80% done with the programming -- still some holes to fill -- but it's still a little early to start letting the cat out of the bag. Rest assured, though: this wi...
