I attended last year and can attest that the magic of movies isn’t just motion, it’s emotion. The way we take what we see on the screen and make it our own. TCM Classic Film Festival was a terrific way to see magnificent, emotionally moving films, meet like-minded cinema lovers, make new friends and commiserate with legendary screen icons. Looking forward to seeing you there this year!
