mmittee presents festivals
By TOM MOORE
Film is a diverse art that can be enjoyed in an
almost infinite number of ways. Film can be en
joyed on a technical level when watching the
master technique in works by such filmmakers
as Orson Welles, Federico Fellini, Jean-Luc
Godard and D. W. Griffith. And film can be en
joyed when it provides laughs by presenting the
Marx Brothers or Charlie Chaplin, when it pro
vides adrenaline-draining suspense as in the
films of Alfred Hitchcock or when it brings tears
as in the 1 1ms of Frank Capra. And cinema can
be enjoyed because it introduces new ideas and
new lifestyles as documentary films do. Film is
the most amazing of all art forms because it
seems limitless in the things it can do.
This semester, as in the past, the Carolina
Union Film Committee will present a series of
films that touch on almost all aspects of the cin
ema. In the past the most popular films have been
the Super Fridays and this semester should prove
no exception. This term there are seven Super
Fridays composed of the best mainstream
American and foreign films that recently have
been released in 16mm. They are: The Elephant
Many the delicate and inspiring story of a de
formed man who becomes the darling of society
in Victorian England, Every Man For Himself,
the brilliant new comedy by the celebrated radi
cal filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard, Airplane, one
of the most hilarious and profitable film satires
in movie history. Breaker Morgnt, a stirring
piece of cinema about the courtmartial of three
Australian soldiers during the Boer War, Apoc

Vietnam epic, La Cage Aux Folles II, the sequel
. to the popular French drawing room farce, and
Raging Bull,-Martin Scorcese's gritty depiction
of the life of middleweight champion Jake La
Motta. Tickets for the Super Friday shows are $1 and
they will be available at the Union Desk the
Monday before the show. The earlier you go buy
your tickets the better your chance of actually
getting hold of one; the Super Fridays tend to
sell out fast.
In addition to the Super Fridays there will be
three other films for which admission will be
charged. There are two Saturday Matinees direc
ted toward children in the area: Mary Poppins,
the Disney studio's best live action film, and The
Point, an animated parable about a round
, headed boy who lives in the land of the pointy
heads. The Point features songs by Harry
Nilsson including the hit "Me and My Arrow."
There also will be a Halloween showing of
George Romero's The Crazies. Romero is best
known for his Night of the Living Dead and
Dawn of the Dead. The Crazies is a variation on
the plot of those two films: an Army plane
crashes in a small town and all the townspeople,
go mad and the army has to come in and kill
them off. Admission to the two Saturday mati
nees and to the Halloween film is 50 cents and
tickets are available ahead of time at the Union
This semester there are four festivals schedul
ed which include highlights of Billy WUder's
films, documentary films, the films of Hollis
Frampton and Brazilian films. Billy Wider, one
of the most prolific filmmakers to work in Holly
wood, has enjoyed critical and popular success
for his work in several genres. Some of his best
films including Sunset Boulevard, Some Like It
Hot and The Apartment will be shown this se
mester. Documentary films have trouble reaching the
audience they deserve because American cinema
is so geared toward inoffensive and middle-of-.
the-road commercial movies. The Film Com
mittee in its Documentary Sampler presents the
Jbest of recent documentary films with such titles

There will be a short booklet available at the

films in the festivals.
Besides the festivals and the Super Fridays
there are numerous other other fine films, all,
geared to appeal to just about every imaginable
taste on campus. And if there area few titles that
you aren't familiar with, be a little daring and
go see something different. And if you don't like
what you see you'll at least have something new
to talk about at the next mixer instead of just
sticking to the usual topics of who's-dating-who,
how the football team is doing and what awful
professors you have this semester.
Personally, I recommend Orson Welles' Touch
of Evil, a thriller about police corruption that is
more an essay in cinema style than anything else,
Michael Powell's Peeping Tom, the controversial
film about a young man who films women as he
murders them, Buster Keaton's The Navigator,

W S H O Wl N G ! 4 clasJl of th
Films to satisfy
By GUHA SHANKAR
DTH Staff Writer
The diversity of entertainment in Chapel Hill is
not confined to the bars, restaurants, and night
clubs. There are four movie theaters in town that
offer a variety of films guaranteed to satisfy the ap
petite of even the most ardent movie-buff.
'. This fall audiences can look forward to taking
their pick of 15 movies a week, a rather remarkable
offering considering the fact that Chapel Hill
residents number less than 70,000. 'Here is a rough
guide to upcoming movies, special series, late
shows and admission prices for Chapel Hill
The Varsity, located on Franklin Street, is" the
oldest theater in town and it shows its age in some
ways. But the admission price of $ 1 for movies at all
times more than compensates for lack of cosmetic
appeal. The Varsity is a single-screen affair which
shows two different movies a day. Even though the
films are not premieres but second and third-run
movies such as The Empire Strikes Back, Clash of
the Titans and S. O.B. , the admission price is a big
' plus for those who would like to save money for es
sentials like beer, textbooks, food; and more beer.
The Plaza Theaters are located in Kroger Plaza,
some three miles away from downtown. But a short
trip by car, bus or foot is little price to enjoy three
quality films now playing there Arthur, starring
Dudley Moore; the spy thriller Eye of the Needle,
with Donald Sutherland; and Brian DePalma's
Blow-Out,' starring John Travolta. At the Plaza, "
shows before 6 p.m. on weekdays are $2.
The Ram Triple, located on the Rosemary Street
side of the NCNB Plaza, has the smallest seating '
capacity of any theater. But the cramped quarters
do not detract from the excellent Warner Brothers
lateshow series which starts Sept. 11. The series .
which will play Fridays and Saturdays throughout
the semester features six concert films: No Nukes,
Gimme Shelter, which stars the Rolling Stones, The
Song Remains the Same, with Led Zeppelin, Bette
Midler in Divine Madness, Woodstock and a film
about Jimi Hendrix.
Music challenges afooimdl
By VICK GRIFFIN
DTH Staff Writer
Anyone familiar with Chapel Hill real
izes the abundance of great music in the
Triangle area whether it is jazz at the
Sallam Cultural Center in Durham or new :
wave at Chapel Hills Cat's Cradle and
UNCs music program is no exception.
The Music Department here at UNC
offers a variety of groups and ensembles
that give students an opportunity both to
sharpen their musical skills and to per-,
form before an audience. In all, there are
eleven performing groups, and they range
from the Percussion Ensemble to the UNC
Glee Club 3 ,
- All musical organizations are open to
any qualified University student, and all
carry academic credit. .Academic credit
usually consists of one hour but practices
occur up to four or fives hours a week.
Auditions have been taking place all this
week and will continue through the re
mainder of Registration Week. No matter
what your musical interests are Bach,
Bartok. or Basie if you are interested

Other films in the series include two Monty Py-.
thon efforts Life of Brian and Monty Python and
the Holy Grail, Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork
Orange, Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles and Enter
the Dragon which stars Bruce Lee.
The Carolina Classics return to the Carolina Twin
located at the corner of Franklin and Columbia
streets. The Classics feature some of the most mem
orable movies of the past and to inaugurate this
year's series is Gone With the Wind, which will play
every afternoon during the week of Aug. 28.
In the following week many other films will ap
pear in the series: Mister Roberts, which stars
Henry Fonda, James Cagney; and Jack Lemmon,
The Big Sleep, with Humphrey Bogart and Lauren
Bacall, Marty, which stars Ernest Borgnine, A
Streetcar Named Desire, and Peter O'Toole as
Lawrence of Arabia.
Appropriately enough, Knute Rockne, All
American starring Pat O'Brian and Ronald
Reagan, is scheduled for Homecoming Week. A
very young Jimmy Stewart stars in Frank Capra's
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and the Humphrey
Bogart-Ingrid. Bergman classic Casablanca closes
out the series for the semester.
The price of admission varies a great deal at each
theater. The Carolina weekday matinees, the Clas-
sics and late shows cost $2.
On the weekend and in the evening the price of
admission is a whopping $3.75, though reduced ad
mission tickets can be purchased at the Carolina
Union Information Desk for $2.25.
But even with nine screens in town you have to
go to the Carolina Theatre in downtown Durham
or to the free flicks offered by the Carolina Union
to see foreign films. John Hartley, manager of the
Carolina, and Larry Jackson, manager of the Plaza,
both said that poor attendance was one reason
foreign films rarely played in their theaters. Hartley
said that he was trying to book some foreign films
for the theater and that Francois Truffaut's The
Last Metro was scheduled to show at the Carolina
in late September.
