    Weekend Classics: Universal 100th Anniversary

    Spring 2013

    This spring, the Belcourt delves into the filmic legacy of Universal Pictures. This weekend series is a tribute to the great Hollywood studio's history, with a spread of films that represent the wide swath of offerings (and genre) Universal pursued and executed over its 100-year existence. Many selections were drawn from a current touring retrospective of brand new 35mm prints, and others were hand-picked from the Universal archives.
