Third to Last Picture Show

Alamo-DH.jpgFollowing up on Tim’s reference to The Last Picture Show, Peter Bogdanovich himself is in town this weekend playing host to a trio of his films. He appears tonight at Alamo South Lamar with TLPS, and then Saturday and Sunday he moves to the downtown location with Paper Moon and Mask. As of this moment, tickets are available for tonight’s 9:45 show.

The Last Picture Show is worth seeing on its own merits – it’s a gorgeous coming-of-age film set against the poignant decline of a small Texas town – made all the more compelling with Peter Bogdanovich in attendance. PB is not only a renowned film-maker, but also an accomplished journalist and storyteller whose path has crossed many legendary and gregarious Hollywood personalities along the way. Bogdanovich is also known for several high-profile daliances, but there’s no reason to dwell in the gutter. Go for the film (or for 19-year-old Cybill Shepherd’s nude scene … perv), but definitely stay for the discussion.
