ELVIS MOVIES – A CLOSER LOOK

Thursday, January 12th at 8:00 PM

Members $12 | Public $17

Hosted by Film Historian Glenn Andreiev

Could you see Elvis Presley cast as Hamlet or Abraham Lincoln? The words “Elvis Movie” conjures up images of a Technicolor Elvis singing for surfer girls, children and animals. Elvis Presley’s better films display memorable, stellar filmmaking, and some remarkable, often believable performances by the King of Rock and Roll. Film historian Glenn Andreiev returns to the Cinema with a fresh look at those enjoyable and sometimes surprising Elvis Presley movies. Michael Curtiz (Casablanca), who directed Elvis in King Creole said of Elvis, “He’s a lovely boy, and he’s going to be a wonderful actor.”

Glenn Andreiev is a Long Island based filmmaker and film historian. His films have been featured at various venues, including The Cinema Arts Centre, local libraries, Northport VA, Vimeo on Demand, CNN, and The Museum of Modern Art. His latest film is Long Island Joins the Space Race.  His films can be found at his website, www.glennandreiev.com.
