Retro Film Series Celebrates Its 20th Anniversary

One of the largest repertory film programs in the country, the Carolina Theatre of Durham's Retro Film Series will celebrate its 20th anniversary. RETRO has become an oft-emulated model of film programming, presenting curated cinematic treats from familiar silver screen gems to rarely seen cult classics.

DURHAM, NC (November 16, 2018) — One of the largest repertory film programs in the country, the Carolina Theatre of Durham's Retro Film Series will mark its 20th anniversary tonight at 7 p.m. with a double-feature of two perfectly creepy, on-brand films: Friday The 13th: Part 2, the first movie the program screened in 1998, and The Shining.

The freshly re-branded weekly showcase, known to fans simply as RETRO, has become an oft-emulated model of film programming, presenting curated cinematic treats from familiar silver screen gems to rarely seen cult classics.

Ah, the harbingers of spring in Durham. Daffodils and crocuses nose out of the lawn, only to be slammed by a week of wintry mix. In the bright evenings after the clocks are set forward, the bars fill up with jogging strollers and mellow dogs. And filmgoers gird themselves for the flickering rush of the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, which takes over downtown to screen around 100 films and host all manner of ancillary events from April 9-12.
