‘Something Old, Something New’ screening series raises awareness, money for moving image archiving

  13.04.02 4:26pm

One stars Steve Martin and Daryl Hannah at the height of their comedic powers, the other French Broadway stars Maurice Chevalier and Claudette Colbert, who’d made their way to Hollywood with the advent of talkies. One is set in a small Pacific Northwest town, the other Vienna. One centers on a fire chief with an unfortunately substantial schnoz, the other a lieutenant whose stray wink nearly causes an international incident. Both are playing at the New Beverly Cinema this weekend.

The 1987 rom com “Roxanne” and 1981’s pre-code comedy musical “The Smiling Lieutenant” form a “Secret Sweeties” double bill for the 10th installment in the “Something Old, Something New” benefit series for the UCLA Student Chapter of the Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA). The nearly monthly screenings pair an older title with a newer one under a common theme. Past events have screened “These Are the Damned” with “Attack the Block” (sci-fi); “The Incredible Shrinking Man” with “Innerspace” (“Size matters”); and “Underworld” with “Election” (crime).

“Before our screening series came along, [the AMIA student chapter] was primarily going to movies and going on studio visits,” said the group’s president Ariel Schudson in a recent chat. “It’s a very educational group, but I came along and … I was like, ‘If we had some money, we could send kids to conferences.’”

Conferences like AMIA’s annual get-together, which will be held in Richmond, Va., on Nov. 6-9 this year. Programming at these events include workshops in archiving, cataloging and metadata and committee meetings on topics like preservation, digital acquisition and access. Schudson is active in the organization and believes her fellow students should be too.
