TCM's Classic Film Festival is coming in 2010

TCM logoIf we lived in a world where we could only watch five TV networks on our televisions (I don't know what type of world that would be but it sounds like one of those bleak futures you often see in sci-fi movies), I would definitely choose Turner Classic Movies as one of those networks. That's a no-brainer. I think I'd have a harder time choosing which major networks(s) I'd want on that list too.

The movie network has announced that they're doing a classic film festival in April 2010.

It will be held at three different Hollywood landmarks (Grauman's Chinese Theatre, The Egyptian Theatre, and The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel) from April 22 to 25. Restored prints of classic movies will be shown, hosted by various film experts. No word yet on which movies will be shown. Tickets go on sale November 18.

Actually, I'm surprised something like this hasn't happened before. Now I just have to move to Hollywood.

When I read the first part of the article I thought, "Well, isn't every day a film festival for TCM?" Then after the jump, I saw that it was going to be held in an actual theater. Bravo, TCM. Bravo.

You don't have to move to Hollywood, just move to Austin, TX. The Alamo Drafthouse does this kind of thing all the time. Just check out the details over at your sister site Cinematical (I know, not TV related but still interesting!).

FYI, around Thanksgiving they are showing all three directors cuts of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy back to back - PLUS MEALS. I'd take that opportunity over living in Hollyweird any day!

5 channels I would select, in no particular order: TCM, History, CBS, USA and MSNBC.
