Let’s talk movies!

We're looking to expand our movie series that was offered at the Iroquois Amphitheater last summer.

When we kicked around the idea of asking the public what types of movies they’d like to see during the Iroquois Amphitheater’s movie series during the summer and fall, one place where we went for assistance was the blog Consuming Louisville, which  has its finger pressed firmly on the pulse of what takes place around the River City.

It’s hard to better describe the feedback we’re looking for than how CL described it:

Family friendly films are good, feel free to suggest them, but so are edgier movies, movies that are for adults. You know, movies you’d show after the kids go to bed but you wouldn’t be embarrassed if your mother saw the Wild & Wooly box. I’m thinking Lebowski would be an obvious choice if there wasn’t already a festival around it and all. So thinking caps on! Please leave lots of comments with your brilliant movie suggestions that will wow us all with your superior taste in entertainment.

So, feel free to leave your comments below on what might bring you out to the Amphitheater, or at Consuming Louisville’s site. Is there a particular genre you’re interested in? What would make a good date night for your spouse/significant other? Are you interested in theme nights?

We’d love to get your feedback, and we’re listening!

    A Bergman festival. Start with The Virgin Spring, then Wild Strawberries, then The Seventh Seal.

    And Fellini – start with La Strada, then Juliet of the Spirits (heck, anything of Fellini’s with Giulietta Masina in it) then La Dolce Vita, which was quite a scandalous movie when some of us trooped out to Crescent Hill to the only art theater in town in the 60s.

    How about some great old classics like Harvey with Jimmy Stewart or the old Sherlock Holmes movies. They are all awesome!
