Summer may be winding down, but Enzian's series of outdoor films in downtown Winter Park, otherwise known as "Popcorn Flicks," continues to rock'n' roll. I'll be on vacation hanging out with the kids for the week of August 6 - 10 (camps are done but school doesn't start for another couple of weeks here in Central F-L-A), but I didn't want to miss the opportunity to remind everybody about Thursday, August 9, and the long awaited return of the Marx Bros. to Central Park. The curtain goes up on A NIGHT AT THE OPERA (1935), perhaps their greatest comedy next to DUCK SOUP, at sunset, and you won't want to miss this priceless classic--even thinking about "the Party of the First Part" contract still cracks me up. Orlando Weekly Music & Film Editor Jason Ferguson will be doing the intro honors and gracing the crowd with some interesting historical trivia and perspective on the film and its stars, so don't be late.
After last month's record turnout for RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, you may even want to lay your blanket down early and grab a good spot. Now let's hope Mother Nature behaves...it is the summer after all.
