Montclair Film announces plans for its year-round screening space, Cinema505

“Thelma & Louise,” starring Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis, will be shown at Cinema505, June 28-29.

Starting in June, Montclair Film, which is best known for presenting the Montclair Film Festival, will begin screening films year-round. The screenings will take place at Cinema505, located at Montclair Film’s headquarters, the Investors Bank Film & Media Center at 505 Bloomfield Ave. in Montclair.

Montclair Film will start with two series: “Coming of Age in Suburbia,” featuring films about growing up in American suburbs, and “Filmmakers Local 505,” which will showcase films by New Jersey directors, with question and answer sessions with the directors following them.

There will also be a special screening of “Thelma & Louise,” June 28-29. Co-presented by the Watchung Booksellers bookstore, it will be followed (on June 28 only) by a question-and-answer session with Becky Aikman, author of the new  book, “Off the Cliff: How the Making of Thelma & Louise Drove Hollywood to the Edge.”
