April 1st there was a screening of A Clockwork Orange followed by a Q&A at the Alex Theater in Glendale as part of their “In Person” series. The theater has history; they screened Gone with the Wind at the Alex, before its Big Hollywood premiere. Glendale is a sleepy town that rolls up its sidewalks around 10 pm. Last night it was a different story, with all of us together in a dark theater hanging on to our hosts’ every word. They had actors dressed up as droogies and violins playing Beethoven on each floor. It bought back memories of how much I love the old Movie houses. We saw a Lurvey 35 Millimeter print, then Gary Oldman interviewed Malcolm McDowell. Those two go back, as Malcolm Mcdowell was Gary’s inspiration as a kid and the reason why he got into acting. I liked all the rough and tumble talk about working with Kubrick, he was a tough customer. Malcolm once asked Kubrick about his directing style, and Kubrick answered, “I don’t know what I want. I only know what I don’t want” The Malcolm Mc Dowell series continues with Time after Time on April 8th and Star Trek Generation on April 15th, moderated by Micheal Dorn.
