The Florence Film Society presents a Screening of the Great Dictator

The Quarterly Art House Film Series comes to a close for the year with a free screening of Charlie Chaplin’s political and comedic masterpiece, presented by the Florence Film Society, the Florence Regional Arts Alliance, and the Florence County Museum.

In 1940, Charlie Chaplin had the audacity and courage to skewer Hitler on screen in The Great Dictator, his bold satirical comedy. In 2016, we still get the opportunity to appreciate his craft and genius in this classic film which was directed, written, produced, and starred in by Chaplin himself.

Join us on Election Day weekend- Friday, November 4, at 7:30pm for this free screening and help us finish 2016 strong!
Q&A will follow, so feel free to ask questions if you have them!
This event will be held at The Waters Building in downtown Florence, and could not be presented without the support of the Florence Regional Arts Alliance and the Florence County Museum. We encourage you to like their pages!

See you at the movies!

The Florence Film Society Presents the Seventh Seal

The Seventh Seal (1957)

Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal is the quintessential art house film.
Jaded Swedish knight Antonius Block (Max von Sydow) returns home from the Crusades to a land of toil and plague. Antonius and a wide cast of characters face struggles with God, life, and a very literal contest with Death. Beautifully written and gorgeously shot, the Florence Film Society is proud to present this masterpiece in collaboration with the Florence Regional Arts Alliance and the Florence County Museum.

The Florence Film Society Presents Slow West

New Zealand director John Maclean’s debut feature film focuses on a young Scottish boy in the 19th century American West searching for the woman he loves. A mysterious fellow traveler, played by Michael Fassbender, accompanies him. This whimsical, absurdist adventure won the Sundance Institute’s World Cinema Jury Prize for Drama in 2015. The Florence Film Society is very excited to present the very first Florence screening of this film in collaboration with the Florence Regional Arts Alliance and the Florence County Museum.
