The Dallas Film Society To Present Two special Screenings Honoring Film Legend Val Kilmer


The Dallas Film Society To Present Two special Screenings Honoring Film Legend Val Kilmer

In celebration of honoring Val Kilmer with the Dallas Star Award at The Art of Film, the Dallas Film Society has announced it will be presenting two of his films on Saturday, November 17, 2012. The Dallas Film Society is in the process of confirming Mr. Kilmer’s attendance.

The screenings of THE DOORS (1991) and BATMAN FOREVER (1995) are open to the public and will be shown at 11:30AM and 2:30PM respectively at Angelika Film Center, 5321 East Mockingbird Lane, Dallas, TX 75206.

Tickets are available for purchase to the public for $10 and $5 for members of the Dallas Film Society on the day of screenings at the Angelika Film Center.

11:30 AM THE DOORS
1991 Rated R 140 min
Director: Oliver Stone. Writers: Randall Jahnson, Oliver Stone.
Cast: Val Kilmer, Meg Ryan, and Kyle MacLachlan.

Oliver Stone’s homage to 1960’s rock group The Doors also doubles as a biography of the group’s late singer, the “Electric Poet” Jim Morrison. The movie follows Morrison from his days as a film student in Los Angeles to his death in Paris in 1971, at the age of 27. The movie features a tour-de-force performance by Kilmer, who not only looks like Jim Morrison’s long-lost twin brother, but also sounds so much like him that he did much of his own singing.

2:30 PM BATMAN FOREVER
1995 Rated PG-13 121 min
Director: Joel Schumacher. Writers: Bob Kane and Lee Batchler.
Cast: Val Kilmer, Tommy Lee Jones, and Jim Carrey

The Dark Knight of Gotham City confronts a dastardly duo: Two-Face and the Riddler. Formerly District Attorney Harvey Dent, Two-Face incorrectly believes Batman caused the courtroom accident which left him disfigured on one side so unleashes a reign of terror on the people of Gotham. Edward Nygma, a computer-genius and former employee of millionaire Bruce Wayne, is out to get the philanthropist as The Riddler. He perfects a device for draining information from all the brains of Gotham, including Bruce Wayne’s knowledge of his other identity.
