Allow this columnist to obnoxiously say “told you so” on the much-trumpeted announcement that Robert Redford was forming his own Sundance Network. This column revealed that Redford was putting together a cable web more than a year ago, in the Jan. 3-9,1994 issue… Despite the numerous protests and pressure by various church and so-called-family-advocacy groups, NBC still plans to air the Glenn Close-Judy Davis starrer “Serving in Silence” with the much-anticipated same-sex kiss between the actresses intact. Close and the woman she portrays, Grethe Cammermeyer, who was discharged from the military for being a lesbian, will make their first appearance together at a benefit screening of the film for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS on Jan. 30 at the Astor Plaza Theatre in Times Square. It’s a dark night for Close’s Norma Desmond duties, but “Sunset Boulevard” producer Andrew Lloyd Webber has made the lobby of the Minskoff Theatre available for the post-screening bash, which will be a collision of celebs. Tix are still available, though they’re sold out in L.A . for a Jan. 23 screening, hosted by exec producer Barbra Streisand.
