Movie Nights At Kayenta

December 10, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Movie Nights At Kayenta

Kayenta Arts Foundation’s (KAF’s) Movie Nights at Kayenta will be showing films from the private collection of Richard Kinsman, a resident of Kayenta. Richard loved movies and had a private collection of over 2,500 films. He had hoped to hold regular movie nights as a fundraising activity for KAF as well as a time of community. However, when he learned he had a terminal illness, Richard granted his collection to the Foundation. Sadly, he did not survive to see the Center for the Arts at Kayenta completed and thus, his movie nights begin. Richard would be so thankful to see that his vision has come to life!

Movie nights coming up:

DECEMBER 10, 7 pm – THE APARTMENT (1960) 

The Apartment is a 1960 romantic dramedy that finds mild mannered C.C. Baxter working at Consolidated Life, an insurance company. To distinguish himself, he often works late, but only because he can’t get into his apartment, since he has provided it to a handful of company executives on a rotating basis for their extramarital liaisons in return for a good word to the personnel director. When Baxter is called into the director’s office for the first time, he learns that it isn’t just to be promoted as he expects, but also to add the director, who is married, to the list of employees to whom he will lend his apartment. What Baxter is unaware of is that Sheldrake’s mistress is Fran Kubelik, an elevator girl in the building who Baxter himself fancies.

Billy Wilder originally thought of the idea for the film after seeing Brief Encounter (1945) and wondering about the plight of a character unseen in that film, and Shirley MacLaine was only given forty pages of the script because Wilder didn’t want her to know how the story would turn out. She thought it was because the script wasn’t finished.

This was the last B&W movie to win Best Picture at The Academy Awards until The Artist (2011). Schindler’s List (1993) which won in 1994 was not completely black and white, as some scenes were in color, like the girl in the red and the candle at the beginning.

The movie is free and open to the public with the fun starting at 7 p.m., There will be bottled water, soda, popcorn, candy, and other concessions available for sale. Bring some cash* to make a donation to help pay for licensing and labor costs. Everyone is welcome!

*We accept cash only for concessions and donations for this event.

JANUARY 7 – TBA

FEBRUARY 4 – TBA

APRIL 1 – TBA
