Rome has been the setting for many films, from historical epics like Julius Caesar to romantic dramas like Three Coins in the Fountain. Area moviegoers recently had the chance to see two vastly different movies that were filmed on location in Rome in the ten years after World War II.

I sometimes feel amazed that an area can support three large historic movie theaters like the Detroit Film Theatre, Michigan Theater, and Redford Theatre. In most cities, any of these theaters would be the center of attraction for fans of alternative film programs.
Closeups are an important part of filmmaking, but sometimes a well-placed long shot can be just as revealing, like in Metropolis, which I saw at the Redford Theatre on October 3, 2015, and in The Third Man, which I watched at the Detroit Film Theatre on October 4, 2015.
