The Johns Hopkins Film Society presents Walter Hill's The Warriors (1979), Danny Boyle's Sunshine (2007) and Robert Stevenson's Mary Poppins (1964). The festival will also include more fiction and documentary features, Baltimore Filmmaker Shorts, Fresh Voices Shorts, WTF Shorts and more.
The lineup for the Johns Hopkins Film Festival is nothing short of supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Who can say no to Mary Poppins? Personally, we were drowning ourselves in spoons full of sugar for weeks after Mary Poppins left Broadway this March to make room for Aladdin, but finally, here’s some consolation. If Mary Poppins isn’t your thing (shame on you), there are plenty of other features, shorts, and documentaries to keep you entertained. Before there was 127 Hours and Slumdog Millionaire, there was Danny Boyle’s 2007 sci-fi thriller Sunshine, about a team of astronauts trying to reignite the flamed-out sun. Or if you’re in the mood for a 1979 cult classic, there will be a showing of Walter Hill’s The Warriors, the New York City street-gang saga. All of these feature films will be screened in 35mm on the third-largest screen in Maryland. The festival will also include Baltimore Filmmakers Shorts, Fresh Voices Shorts, and WTF Shorts, among many others. Don’t miss out on Poppins or the popcorn. (Katherine Quinn)
