This Week At The Cinema: Mayo and The Oscars

Posted By on Tue, Feb 27, 2018 at 11:41 AM

Mayonnaise.

For something so bland and innocuous, mayo can inspire very strong opinions. But would it change your opinion of the condiment to find out that it helped defeat the Nazis?

The story is much more complex than that, of course, as you will find out when see Monsieur Mayonnaise tonight at Malco Ridgeway. It's the final night of the Morris and Mollye Fogelman International Jewish Film Festival, and they're teaming up with Indie Memphis to present this story of one artist's search for the real story of his father's involvement in the French Resistance during World War II.

Or, if that's not your speed, there's always Primal Rage: Bigfoot Reborn at Malco Cordova. Get some of the cryptoid trailer action!


Then on Wednesday at the National Civil Rights Museum, Indie Memphis presents an encore screening of a bloc of 11 short films by Memphis artists created for the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's assassination in 1968, including "Arkabutla" by filmmaker Katori Hall.

The program begins at 7:00 PM, and you can get tickets and see the full lineup on the Indie Memphis website. While you're there, you can also get tickets to the Indie Memphis Red Carpet Oscar party at the Rec Room. The party includes food and a chance to beat Memphis Commercial Appeal film writer John Beifuss at picking Oscar winners. It's sure to be a good time!
