‘New Classics' Film Series on Campus; Debuts with ‘All That Jazz' on April 21

In its continuing efforts to provide film screenings, the Program Council at CSULB is initiating a new film series on campus.

With the theme “New Classics,” the series promises to deliver contemporary classic films in their original film prints in addition to panel discussions from professors and film industry professionals following each screening.

The inaugural screening for the new series will be Bob Fosse's 1979 classic “All That Jazz,” starring Roy Scheider. It will be shown on Thursday, April 21, in the University Theatre. The evening's program will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $2 for students and $4 for non-students. Admission covers the film, panel discussion and a special surprise performance.

“We're choosing films that were released within the last 20 to 30 years because that is within the average lifetime of current college students,” said Ken Cooper, Program Council film screening co-coordinator. “They are films that were not particularly mainstream, but on the whole, they have been overlooked or underappreciated by most movie-going audiences.”

In “All That Jazz,” director/choreographer Fosse tells his own life story as he details the sordid life of Joe Gideon (portrayed by Scheider), a womanizing, drug-using dancer.

For more information about the film series or about the screening of “All That Jazz,” call 562/477-9174 or the Program Council Hotline at 562/985-8480.
