It’s going to be a busy weekend here at the Film Forum. Only a few tickets remain for the four shows with Crispin Glover, and they are sure to be gone by the time you read this, and tonight and tomorrow’s 7pm Enemies of the People shows are sold out too.
So what’s a filmgoer to do? How about catching this rare and unusual treat at the Nordic Heritage Museum? Note the discount for Film Forum members, too:
Film Night at the Museum: Max Manus
Friday, January 21, 2011, 7:00 pm
Where: Nordic Heritage Museum
Address: 3014 N.W. 67th Street in Ballard. Free parking.
Calling all film buffs! The Nordic Heritage Museum is delighted to bring you the rare opportunity to view Max Manus, the 2008 Norwegian biographic film based on the real events of the life of resistance fighter Max Manus (1914 – 96). The story follows Manus—played by Aksel Hennie—from the Winter War against the Soviet Union, through the outbreak of World War II and the German occupation of Norway until peacetime in 1945. Its budget was estimated to be the most expensive of all purely Norwegian film productions before 2009, with around 1800 extras and 2,000 workers behind the cameras. The film is based on Max Manus’ own books, as well as other accounts and historical documentation.
The evening will begin with dessert, coffee & a no-host bar at 7:00 pm and the film at approximately 7:30 pm. For more information, visit www.nordicmuseum.org
$10 for museum members and NWFF members, $15 general
