National Illustrators Go to the Movies
with “Favorite Flix”
The illustrators selected classic movies, such as To Kill a Mockingbird and Citizen Kane; contemporary films like The Lord of the Rings, The Two Towers; and the unusual, The Incredible Two-Headed Transplant. “Favorite Flix” gives people a chance to reflect on the films that truly impacted their lives and see if there really is a battle of the sexes when it comes to celluloid.
An opening reception for “Favorite Flix” will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 19, from 7-10 p.m., in the VCT Gallery. Saturday matinee-type refreshments will be served. The highlight of the reception will be a special presentation by one of Washington’s liveliest film critics, Willie Waffle, at 8 p.m. Waffle will talk about reviewing films, movie trivia, and more. He is a regular guest on WMAL AM 630’s “The David Burd Show” and Fox 5 TV’s “Fox 5 Morning News.” In addition to his local work, Waffle’s reviews can be read online at WaffleMovies.com or in his book, “Back Shelf Beauties: Movies You Should Rent When the New Stuff is Gone.”
Gallery hours for the “Favorite Flix” exhibit, November 15 – December 15, will be Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m.; and Saturday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. “Favorite Flix” is jointly sponsored by the Montgomery College Department of Visual Communications Technologies, private donors, and the Illustrators Club of Washington, D.C., Virginia, and Maryland.
