Finney film series runs Jan. 13-28

Retrospective to be held on both coasts

Albert Finney will be the subject of film retrospectives on both coasts, beginning in January.

A seven-pic tribute runs Jan. 13-28 at the Laemmle Sunset 5 in West Hollywood. The films will screen once each, on weekend mornings. The series kicks off with Finney’s 1960 film debut, “Saturday Night and Sunday Morning,” and wraps Jan. 28 with “Erin Brockovich.” In between will be “Miller’s Crossing,” “Two for the Road” (on a special Martin Luther King Day holiday sked), “Under the Volcano,” “Gumshoe” and “Tom Jones.”

In Gotham, eight pics will screen Jan. 5-11 at the Screening Room. Each will get multiple showings. Tribute kicks off with “Miller’s Crossing” and “Saturday Night and Sunday Morning”; “Tom Jones,” “Two for the Road,” “Gumshoe” and “The Dresser” will be shown on subsequent evenings, and the series wraps with “Erin Brockovich” and “The Playboys.”

The films represent the work of such helmers as Karel Reisz, Joel Coen, Stanley Donen, John Huston, Stephen Frears, Tony Richardson and Steven Soderbergh. Finney has been nominated for four Academy Awards.
