Persepolis Arrives

by aec

You don't have to wait until March 14 to see Persepolis!

The much anticipated animated film by Iranian artist Marjane Satrapi starts today at the Bijou Theatre as part of the AEC's Independent Film Series. City of Men was originally scheduled to start today but after some issues with print availability the Bijou decided to swap the two films on the schedule. (City of Men will now start March 14.)

Satrapi brings her bold autobiographical sketches to the big screen in this animated tale of a feisty Iranian girl during the Islamic Revolution. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film.

Also -- the Bijou is holding Be Kind Rewind for an extra week! You now have until March 6 to see this latest feature by Michael Gondry starring Jack Black, Mos Def and Danny Glover. Even if you can't make it to the theatre, their website is definitely worth a look.

Check local listings for all Independent Film Series showtimes.

We hope you are enjoying the Series so far. Let us know what you think!
