Vincentennial: Coming Soon!

Just discovered this fantastic promo from Cinema St Louis for Vincent's 100th birthday celebrations in his home town of St Louis, Missouri.

Scheduled for May 20-27, 2011, at multiple venues (Washington University, Missouri History Museum, Hi-Pointe Theatre, Sheldon Concert Hall and Art Galleries), the Vincentennial will include the following:

1. Screenings of Price’s major films - from Service De Luxe to Theatre of Blood, and Tim Burton’s short Vincent (subject to availability).

2. Participation by filmmakers/actors, critics, and academics, who will conduct interviews, introduce and discuss films, and present lectures and special events. Invitees will include Victoria Price, his daughter and biographer.

3. Exhibit of Price-related artifacts, artwork, and memorabilia at the Sheldon Concert Hall and Art Galleries.

As more info comes to hand, I'll keep you posted. In the meantime, check out the Vincentennial Facebook page and also Victoria Price's website dedicated to her father's legacy.
