Pre-Codes, Noir and One Big Move: May 2013 in Films


May was a hectic month. I finished my penultimate semester of grad school (I graduate in December) and I MOVED TO L.A. Yes. I now live in North Hollywood (I’ve been here all of one day!) So this month’s round-up post is going to be a bit shorter than usual. I’m sure June will be full of crazy film-going shenanigans (I’m seeing Some Like It Hot tonight at the Hollywood Forever cemetery for Marilyn’s birthday today!). The reason for my move is that I am starting a job next week with. . .the Warner Archive Collection at Warner Bros. I am pretty excited. I can’t really tell you much about it, but it is going to rule. I’m going to miss San Francisco and I’m going to miss the Castro Theatre dearly, but the last film I saw there was Shadow of a Doubt (aka my favorite Hitchcock), so I guess I went out with a bang! I’m excited to explore the rich cinematic adventures L.A. has to offer.
