Spring of 2015 Buffalo Film Seminars

In 2015 it is suggested that you go out and purchase a few good books. It is also suggested that you take in a few significant movies.

I’m not talking about the next Dumb and Dumber or any of the other silly sequels that will hurt your brain. I’m talking about movies that have transcended the ages. Movies like Roger Vadim’s Barbarella (1968) and Bob Fosse’s All That Jazz (1979). But where on earth can you find these types of movies still playing on the silver screen, where they were intended to be viewed?


Simple. Just check out Bruce Jackson and Diane Christian’s Buffalo Film Seminars, which take place at the Dipson Amherst theater. “All films are at the Dipson Amherst, beginning, as always, with the two of us introducing the week’s film at 7:00 p.m, screening it, then having an open discussion with students in our UB film class and anyone in the audience who wants to join us,” says Bruce.

The Buffalo Film Seminars take place Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. promptly, at the Dipson Amherst Theatre, 3500 Main St., Buffalo, NY. Free parking.
