29 May Halifax film screening picks — May 29-June 4
The First Features series of free Wednesday screenings at the Dal Art Gallery wraps up this week with A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, the “weirdly exhilarating” Persian-language California-shot vampire spaghetti western.
This Sunday, Cineplex Park Lane and Dartmouth Crossing have a Classic Films screening of The Godfather, and 45 years on from its initial release, it’s worth revisiting this initial Hollywood Reporter review, which, like the film, holds up. But the story of how it came to be made is an epic tale itself.
