2018 Film Club Jan-June
A Fistful of Dollars

Join us for The Music Hall Film Club! Over the course of six months, we’ll be focusing on a particular outstanding director, genre, or artist. On the 3rd Tuesday of each month, we’ll show a film followed by a lively, participatory discussion. Curators Bill and Stella Pence, founders of the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado and the Music Hall’s Telluride by the Sea Film Festival, have chosen ‘Hit The Ground Running’ for July through December 2017! Trevor Bartlett will be our host and guide. ‘Know The Score’ will be our topic for January - June of 2018 with host Chris Curtis.

About Hit The Ground Running
