Film Salon returns to Alamo Drafthouse with comedic masterpiece Sullivan’s Travels

The Film Salon, a monthly classic film series founded by local film lover Charles Horak, returns to in-person screenings at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Montecillo this week with the comedic masterpiece SULLIVAN’S TRAVELS.

As a precautionary measure, screenings of The Film Salon were held virtually over the last several months. They are back in movie theaters just in time to celebrate The Film Salon’s 20th anniversary.

The Film Salon, a monthly gathering of cinephiles and those curious about classic cinema, screens important films from cinema history with an introduction before the showing and discussion afterward.

The return of the series kicks off this week with SULLIVAN’S TRAVELS. The film is a classic satire by writer/director Preston Sturges and is the story of a privileged Hollywood director’s journey to enlightenment amid the human struggle.

The film will show on Saturday, March 5, 2022, at 6 p.m. at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Montecillo.

The Film Salon was founded by radio host, businessman and film lover Charles Horak in May 2002, in an underused chapel at Trinity-First United Methodist Church. Horak is the co-founder of the Plaza Classic Film Festival and was the event’s Artistic Director during its first six years.

“As with many such endeavors, I’ve gained so much more than I’ve given,” Horak said. “Watching a community form around our film screenings has been very rewarding and the preparation required for each introduction has furthered my own knowledge and appreciation of cinema.”
