The Texas Theatre and D Magazine will be joining together to bring the classic 1966 scifi movie FAHRENHEIT 451 to audiences for one afternoon only. The movie will be shown at 4PM on Sunday, April 14, 2013. The movie is based on the 1951 book by Ray Bradbury with the movie directed by François Truffaut and starring Julie Christie and Oskar Werner.
FAHRENHEIT 451 is probably one of my favorite books of all time and I will occasionally re-read it. In fact, I’m probably due for one now. I always liked to think that if we lived in a society where books were burned and there was an underground culture where a person was tasked with memorizing a book, what would I want to memorize?
That’s a good question. If you had to memorize one book, and that was the only book that you could remember and pass on to others, what would it be? I’ll get back to you on what mine is.
