Special Screenings

Movie of the Week: Good Bye, Lenin

Star Wars: Attack of the Clones. The one in which teen Darth has his speech comparing Natalie Portman to sand. Even with that awesomely stupid scene, this thing is still better than The Phantom Menace. Be sure to dress warm and bring chairs. Newport Dunes Resort, 1131 Back Bay Dr., Newport Dunes, (949) 729-DUNE. Sat., dusk. Free; parking, $10.

Warning Shadows. Arthur Robison's influential, 1923 German Expressionist drama follows a baron, his wife and her rather-too-flirtatious man-friends, who are granted mysterious visions of the horrors that may befall them unless everybody settles down and knocks it off with all the grab-ass. The German title: Schatten—Eine nächtliche Halluzination. It's a musical language, isn't it? It screens with Käthe Kollwitz, a 1986 documentary portrait of the German artist. It's the latest entry in the German Expressionist Film Series. Cal State Long Beach, University Art Museum, 1250 Bellflower Blvd., Long Beach, (562) 985-5761. Fri.-Sat., noon. Free.

And that's the way it isn't.
