Millennium- The Story, a short film about Stieg Larsson, author of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, will be shown one time only at The Loft. Free.
Doors open at 10 am for the 11 am screening. There are no advance tickets and seating is strictly limited, so it’s first come first, first seated.
We’re big fans of Lisbeth Salander–she of the tattoo–and plan to get in line early, take our seats and settle back with a couple of “Millennium Mimosas” (not free) from the snack bar.
From The Loft’s announcement:
The MILLENNIUM trilogy by Swedish author Stieg Larsson is THE literary phenomenon of the last decade, with 15 million books sold worldwide, 25 translations in over 40 countries, and a movie (THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, based on the first novel in the trilogy) that has blasted box-office records all across the world. And now with the release of the movie version of THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE, the second installment in the series, the Millennium saga continues …
This short (52 minute0 documentary portrait of Stieg Larsson reveals the story of an outstanding success – a worldwide phenomenon who, at the age of 50, died from a sudden heart attack before his first novel was even published. In the film, Larsson’s fascinating real-life story is analyzed by close friends and relatives; by his publisher, his journalist colleagues and by various professionals who have worked on the films, including Swedish producer Soren Staermose and leading actors Noomi Rapace and Michael Nyqvist, who play Lizbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist.
The second film in the series, The Girl Who Played With Fire, opens at The Loft Friday, August 13th.
The Loft is located at 3233 East Speedway
