Claire Bain: IOHTE

The San Francisco Bay Area is still home to a rich cinephilic culture nurtured in large part by a diverse array of cinemas, programmers and moviegoers. I'm honored to present a selection of favorite screenings experienced by local cinephiles in 2015. An index of participants can be found here.

IOHTE contributor Claire Bain is a Canyon cinema filmmaker, artist and writer. Here's her website.

All at the Castro, I ended the year with: Cyd Charisse elongated Singin' in the Rain and The Band Wagon. This pair of musicals dipped into dance and song with script dadafying zeal.

Breakfast at Tiffany's had Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard as courtesan and gigolo, respectively. A hilarious party scene and Hepburn singing and (really!) playing guitar on "Moon River" were among my favorite moments in this interesting film.
