Cinema Tuesdays Kicks Off With “Lawrence of Arabia” And “The Birds”

Texas Public Radio’s 13th annual Cinema Tuesdays series is fast approaching. All summer long, movie lovers can enjoy the very best in classic films curated by Nathan Cone, TPR’s movie expert.

Screenings take place Tuesday evenings at the Santikos Bijou, located at 4225 Fredericksburg Road, San Antonio, TX 78201.

"This summer promises to be another exciting one for classic film lovers. ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ has long been requested by our audience, and I’ve had to wait until now. The film underwent a brand-new 4K restoration last year, and it’ll look amazing on screen," said Cone. "Cinema Tuesdays is a great annual event that brings people together over a shared love of great movies. I look forward to the company and conversation that comes with each screening!”

Individual reservations can be made online at tpr.org/topic/cinema-tuesdays or by phone at (210) 614-8977 for a suggested donation of $10 for Texas Public Radio members or $12 for non-members. Season passes are available until June 4 for $80. Advance reservations for each film close at noon on the date of the showing.

Proceeds benefit Texas Public Radio. The 2013 Cinema Tuesdays series is a community initiative of Texas Public Radio and is sponsored by Americus Diamond and Stevens Lighting. Follow Cinema Tuesdays on Twitter @TPRCinema.
