Movie Lounge – November 30

Belle de Jour (Luis Buñuel, 1967)

Movie Lounge – November 30

Weak week for new releases – something to do with November having that extra weekend, maybe? – but there are some interesting older titles popping up for one-off screenings, including another visit to Newport from director James Ivory.

One other note for movie fans: on Saturday, December 1, the Jane Pickens Theater (49 Touro Street, Newport) is selling off some of their poster collection. More info here.

If you have any tips or thoughts on how to make the Movie Lounge better, drop a line to
