ST. LOUIS - Aug. 6, 2020 - PRLog -- Golden Anniversaries, which is co-presented by Cinema St. Louis (CSL) and the St. Louis Public Library, features classic films celebrating their 50th anniversaries. This third edition of the event will highlight 14 films from 1970, including two double bills.

Because in-person screenings remain problematic during the pandemic, Cinema St. Louis will hold free online conversations on the films, with people watching the films on their own but gathering virtually to discuss them.

Film critics, film academics, and filmmakers will offer introductory remarks and then participate in discussions about the films. Those conversations will be offered as free live streams at 7:30 PM every Monday from Aug. 10-Oct. 26. Participants will need to register for the live streams on the CSL website.

In addition to a fine selection of St. Louis critics, Golden Anniversaries will feature a quartet of experts from elsewhere, including David Edelstein, chief film critic of New York magazine ("M*A*S*H" on Aug. 10); AJ Schnack, director of such documentaries as "Gigantic (A Tale of Two Johns)," "Kurt Cobain About a Son," "We Always Lie to Strangers," and the recent "Long Gone Summer" (double bill of "Gimme Shelter" and "Woodstock" on Sept. 7); Charles Taylor, author of "Opening Wednesday at a Theater or Drive-In Near You: The Shadow Cinema of the American '70s" ("Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" on Sept. 21); and Novotny Lawrence, author of "Blaxploitation Films of the 1970s: Blackness and Genre" (double bill of "Cotton Comes to Harlem" and "The Watermelon Man" on Sept. 28).

The discussions with the presenters will be facilitated by Cliff Froehlich, CSL's executive director. Audience members will be able to ask questions and make observations on the films through the chat function of the live stream; those queries and comments will be relayed to the presenter by CSL.

The introductions and discussions will also be recorded and archived on CSL's YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/user/CSLSLIFF) channel. Essays on many of the films will appear on The Lens, CSL's blog.
