This screening series sounds amazing! Most of the classics were in theaters before I was born or when I was too young to see them, so this is an awesome opportunity to see these films on the big screen. Also, having already watched The Spectacular Now–which is fantastic and one of our Top 10 Indies To See This Summer–this kind of promotion will definitely lead the right audience to see James Ponsoldt’s touching and real coming of age drama. Watch the trailer for THE SPECTACULAR NOW below:
