Along with reminding people that the Cincinnati Film Festival begins this Thursday, I wanted to point out that the lead-off movie will kick things off in style.
The Cincinnati Beer Story focuses on the history of beer-making (and, come to think of it, beer drinking) in Cincinnati. With micro-breweries popping up everywhere and Moerlein Lager House opening its doors, the timing seems perfect for this film. It will show at 7:30 pm at the Emery Theatre, but a walking tour will precede it; here’s a link to the actual event:
The Cincinnati Film Festival has posted a schedule for all the nights along with descriptions of the films on www.cincinnatifilmfestival.com. As you check out the schedules, pay attention to which venue is showing that film that night, as there are several different locations.
That said, most of the movies will be appearing at the Esquire Theatre, which will have one room devoted exclusively to the festival from Friday through Monday. To bring things full circle, the Esquire now serves alcohol, including White Russians, as many Big Lebowski fans discovered during the recent midnight showings of the film. Beer, popcorn and a movie – now there’s a combination.
