Turner Classic Film Festival Kicks Off In Hollywood

HOLLYWOOD (CBS) — A musical, a horror film and what critics once considered a huge flop highlight this year’s Turner Classic Film Festival in Hollywood.

The festival starts Thursday evening and runs through Sunday.

The aforementioned musical (“Cabaret”), the horror film (“Rosemary’s Baby”) and the former bomb (“Cleopatra”) will be shown along with such fare as “Sabrina,” “Love Story,” “Annie Hall,” “Elmer Gantry,”  “Vertigo,” “Moonstruck” and “Casablanca” to name a few.

Movies are shown at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, the Cinerama Dome and other venues. Organizers of the festival say the aim is simple. “Where movie lovers from around the world gather to experience classic movies as they were meant to be seen — on the big screen.”

This year’s theme “Style in the Movies.”
