Film series brings diverse movies to Cody area

The story of the unsung musicians who backed up major stars of the 1960s and 70s will kick off the six-part fall season of the Northwest Wyoming Film Series on Tuesday.

“The Wrecking Crew” is a documentary about the group who played for such singers as Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra, The Monkees, The Byrds and The Beach Boys. It will be shown at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at Big Horn Cinemas in Cody.

The next three movies will be “The Wolfpack,” “Timbuktu” and “Salt of the Earth,” with the final two movies announced later.

“We’re delighted once again to offer signature movies in a shared viewing experience for people who wish to see films other than those produced for a mass market,” said Richard Wilson, NWFS board member. “The board viewed an assortment of trailers before choosing the six films that will comprise the fall season. The series promises to provide variety and inspiration.”

The second movie, a documentary called “The Wolfpack,” follows the lives of six brothers who grew up confined to their apartment in New York City and who coped by watching and reenacting movies.

In “Timbuktu,” a proud cattle herder and his family live tranquilly until the fundamentalist reign in the nearby, ancient city disrupts their peace.

“Salt of the Earth” follows the career of Brazilian photographer SebastiĆ£o Salgado from his coverage of international incidents to his journey in search of Earth’s beauty.

Memberships for the fall series of six films and winter/spring season of eight films are available at $20 per person. Checks should be made out to NWFS and mailed to P.O. Box 1004, Cody, WY 82414.
