Run away to Hollywood this summer for classic postwar films

If you’re planning a trip to Los Angeles this summer, one of the best ways to experience the film capitol of the world might be attending a Hollywood film screening.

And if you’re in town at the right time, a good one to catch is “Runaway Hollywood: Global Production in the Postwar World,” a programmed series of films from the UCLA Film and Television Archive based on a book by UO assistant professor of cinema studies and film historian Daniel Steinhart. The films will be shown this summer at the Billy Wilder Theater in Los Angeles.
