If you’re headed toward Charlotte this weekend then be sure to visit the Light Factory as they screen a bevy of film greats from the year 1972 with their Spirit of ’72 celebration. It all started with a journey down the river with Deliverance last night and continues with Bruce Lee’s Way of the Dragon followed by Fritz the Cat tonight. The celebration continues through the weekend with screenings of The Getaway, What’s Up Doc?, and a little known film called The Godfather. They even have Luis Bunuel action with The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie and then wrap it all up with the most disgusting movie ever made – Pink Flamingos! That’s more movie goodness than a doggie bag can handle. Visit the official Light Factory website for more information.
