I don’t know how many times I’ve seen the 1971 quirky, cult classic film “Harold and Maude“. 20 year old Harold falls in love with 80 year old Maude, a novel type of relationship any time. Bud Cort stars as Harold and Ruth Gordon is Maude. It may be the Cat Stevens music in the background, or this unusual couple, or depressed Harold’s domineering (but funny) mother, or militaristic uncle that make this movie so entertaining as well.
Cinema La Placita (www.cinemalaplacita.com) shows this movie outdoors tomorrow at 7:30 p.m., with suggested donation of $3, with all you can eat popcorn. This movie venue is in its 11th year, and is now participating in the 2nd Saturdays Downtown fest as well, on the large, empty wall in the large, empty lot on E. Congress, between Scott and Stone.
From their website: “Since May 2000, we have been showing classic movies in a beautiful plaza setting in downtown Tucson. Every Thursday evening at 7:30, May through October, hundreds of Tucsonans enjoy the cool summer evenings and a pleasant summertime event.”
For those new to Tucson, Cinema La Placita shows movies in the plaza at La Placita Village, 110 S. Church Avenue, which is on the SW corner of E. Broadway and Church Avenue (those bright, multi-colored three & four story buildings).
See you at the movies!
Coming up next week Thursday, the 1933 sci fi/horror film, “The Island of Lost Souls“.
