Going To The Movies

Macomb, IL – This semester's International Film Series in Macomb will include movies from several different countries, plus a documentary and a reissue of a 1970s film. The series resumes Wednesday with "Oliver Twist." This latest adaptation of a Charles Dickens novel was directed by Roman Polanski. Carmike Cinemas I & II Manager Larry Jarvis says it's one of the best adaptations of a Dickens novel that he's seen. Jarvis says next week's film will be "Junebug." The documentary is "Protocols of Zion," which explores a resurgence of anti-Semitism in the post-9/11 world. The reissued film is "The Passenger" starring Jack Nicholson.
