MIFF is pleased as punch to announce that the Astor Theatre has come onboard as a partner cinema for the MIFF membership program! That means that current members will now be able to gain concession entry to sessions at the Astor with your MIFF membership card (excluding special events).
Not only that, but the Astor will also be offering us special members screenings throughout the year featuring films from their premiere retrospectives seasons, where you will be able to experience beautifully restored classic films before anyone else!
So to celebrate this momentous occasion, we will be kicking off the partnership with a bang with a special members screening on Tuesday 26th of February of the new 4K DCP restoration of the Alfred Hitchcock classic NORTH BY NORTHWEST, thanks to our friends at Chapel Distribution!
If you would like to come along to the screening you will be able to book your seat from 11am Monday 11th February. Be quick, though, as there are only 300 spots available, and believe me, you don't want to miss out!
I certainly hope you will be able to join us in raising a choc-ice toast to the Astor on the 26th. Like Bogie and Bacall, Woody Allen and neurosis, and Cary Grant and crop-dusting aeroplanes, some cinematic unions are timeless, and we hope that the same can now be said for MIFF and the Astor.
Yours in classic film appreciation,
Hayley Inch, Membership Coordinator.
