Tonight marks the one-year anniversary of NOW Free Flick Mondays at The Royal, and it will be my pleasure to introduce a goddamn perfect crowd-pleaser: Cameron Crowe’s Almost Famous.
A decade and a half later, I’m pretty sure this is his best movie, or at least the best expression of the thing he wants to do as a filmmaker, and if you’ve never seen it on the big screen with an appreciative crowd, well, here’s a chance to fix that. Doors open at 6:30, show starts at 7:30; first 100 guests get free popcorn, and everyone gets a free movie. It’s going to be great, please join us.
Oh, and also: This is the first time we’ve screened a film covered on Someone Else’s Movie, so if you’re already familiar with Almost Famous, maybe check out what Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, creators of Resolution and Spring, had to say about it? (Spoiler: Quite a lot.)
See you tonight, I hope. And if you can’t make it, listen to the podcast anyway. It’s really good!
