In Glorious Smell-O-Vision! The True Story of The Godfather of Scented Cinema/Burnt Toast
What happens when all of our senses (including that of scent) play a role in the cinematic experience? And will consumers really want to gnaw on a piece of toast bearing Jesus’s (or their own) image? Discover the answers to these (and other) “burning” questions at this film pairing. Bonus: You’ll have the chance to experience “scented cinema” first-hand – even while wearing a mask!
Friday, November 6 – A DOUBLE HEADER OF DANCE AND FUN! Put on your best dancin’ duds, and join us as Docutah concludes a stellar festival week with two very special screenings, the awards ceremony, and annual Drive-In Movie and Parking-Lot Prom! Come to the Pineview Megaplex for a one-of-a-kind evening.
For LGBTQ+ youth, the high school prom experience can be unimaginably surreal. Take Me to Prom captures the prom stories of queer people 17-88, and charts social progress through this time-honored ritual. This film will be screened inside the Pineview Megaplex. Immediately following the film is a panel discussion with the filmmaker, Encircle St. George and DSU’s Multi-Cultural Inclusion Center (prom clothes encouraged!).
7-7:45 p.m., live music and Parking-Lot Prom – Between Take Me to Prom and DOCUTAH’S Annual Drive-In Movie, we’ll head out to the “drive-in” (behind the theater complex), where Docutah will present the Parking-Lot Prom and our annual Raven Awards to our most outstanding filmmakers!
7:45-8:15 p.m., Docutah Raven Awards Presentations
The drive-in movie is FREE and open to the public, and sponsored through the generosity of the City of St. George.
Don’t miss Merely Marvelous: The Dancing Genius of Gwen Verdon, which follows the Broadway icon through her celebrated career on stage and screen, forever changing the face of dance. A Q&A with the filmmaker wraps up what promises to be a memorable evening of film and fun!
