Oslo Cinematheque program Jan/Feb 2009

In 2008, I had a resolution that I'd decided on that I totally failed to live up to. It was to go to the Cinematheque more (ie more than I'd done in 2007). I failed utterly & completely. Findabair got me to go to one screening during the OGLFF in June, and since then I haven't set foot there. Shame on me! In my defense, I have to say that at least during the second half of -08 they didn't have a lot on their programs that interested me. But I probably could have found a movie or two during what, six months ... so it's no real excuse. But I've just gotten totally out of the habit of going there. Which is seriously weird, because when I used to live at Slependen and then in Sandvika, which are both outside the city, I went to lots of screenings - I used to go there way more often back then than what I've done since I've actually been living in the city. So it's really weird.

I hope to do better this year. Didn't include it in my New Year's resolutions, cause obviously that didn't work. ;-) But here's hoping. On Thursday last week I was at the movies with KAS and trilltrall, the screening was at Saga and they had the Cinematheque program available there ... we all took copies and while we were waiting for the movie to start (review coming up :-) we discovered that this time, they've actually got a lot of good stuff up their sleeves. We're going to go really often now. Totally. Watch this space *cough* ...

Anyway ... I thought I'd blog about this, in an effort to get people to nag me to actually do this. KAS, trilltrall, I hope you're paying attention here - I'm doing this to help us. ;-) This is what I'm interested in seeing from this current program. If anyone's in Oslo and thinks any of this looks interesting too, let me know! I'm there! :-)

So ... pick one of each, obviously :-D ... most movies are screened twice when they're on the program here. Tancred is much the better screen, it seats almost 200 to Lillebil's about 65. All the 70mm screenings will be in Tancred, of course. Full Cinematheque program here, full 70mm program included. Some good stuff. Hope I'll see you there. :-)

I'm sure you'd have a good time if you did. ;-) Here's hoping I'll get around to actually going to any of these - if I manage half of them I'll be happy. But it's a shame not to go there, because it's a great place. I'll do better ... :-)
