The wait is over. After a brief, regrettable hiatus, the Indie Theater Roundup is back, locked and loaded for a long summer, ready with the antidote to the foppish banality of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and the calculated naughtiness of The Hangover Part II. So, without further ado:
1. A Place in the Sun
Where: Castro Theatre, 429 Castro St., 415-621-6120
When: May 28
Elizabeth Taylor was one of the most respected people ever to grace Hollywood, an inimitable woman of ferocity and sophistication who stayed true to herself and her friends (ahem, Michael Jackson) until the end of her life. The Castro Theatre has put together quite the tribute to this Hollywood lioness, displaying her grandeur in 11 films spread across 6 days–from May 27 to June 1–that isn't just a celebration of the actress' body of work.
