The most beautiful girl in the world, a queen of the silver screen and the tabloid scandal sheets, the last great star of Hollywood’s Golden Age and the first great star of the of the modern media era: Elizabeth Taylor was all that and more. For seven decades, the child actress turned double Oscar winner—recipient of the Film Society’s gala tribute in 1986—captivated audiences with her talent and glamour, and a life that often seemed more dramatic than her movies. Indeed, even as her film appearances grew scarce, Taylor was never far from the public eye, continuing to play “La Liz” (arguably her greatest role) until March 23 of this year. Films include: Cleopatra in 70mm, the 60th Anniversary screening of A Place in the Sun and a special Movies for Kids screening of National Velvet!
In partnership with The Kobal Collection and Big Eye Gallery, there will also be a hosted photo exhibit in the Furman Gallery of the iconic Elizabeth Taylor through the years.
