"Mark your calendars, grab your popcorn and get ready to join us for four fantastic Festival-filled days, presented as unique experiences on TCM and HBO Max. This year's Festival will feature more than 100 films, brand new conversations with over 30 special guests, rarely seen gems from the TCM archives and special presentations."

One of our favorite film festivals had to go online and on cable this year, but there's still some amazing content for the movie buff. So many great classics to watch. Grab some popcorn and check out the full schedules above. Sigh, we hope one day there can be another Smell-O-Vision showing.

TCM premiere of recently restored version. The new two-color Technicolor master was restored by UCLA Film and Television Archive and The Film Foundation in association with Warner Bros. Entertainment.

New York City reporter Lee Taylor (Lee Tracy) is doing a piece on a series of grisly, cannibalistic murders that have all been committed under a full moon. Police soon begin to suspect that the murderer works at the lab of Dr. Jerry Xavier (Lionel Atwill), a mysterious Long Island researcher who is doing an investigation of his own. Antsy for an inside story, Taylor breaks into the lab, where he meets and falls in love with Dr. Xavier's daughter Joan (Fay Wray).

During a university’s pledge week, the carefree partying turns deadly serious when a star athlete is found impaled in his dorm. The murder ignites a spree of sinister social-media messages, sweeping the students and police into a race against time to uncover the truth behind the school’s dark secrets…and the horrifying meaning of a recurring symbol: a single exclamation mark.

Followed by a Q&A with John Berardo (Co-Writer, Director, Producer, SCA Alum), Brian Frager (Co-Writer, Producer, SCA Alum), Lindsay LaVanchy (Co-Writer, Actor), Jonathan Pope (Director of Photography, SCA Alum) and Kristina Lyons (Editor, SCA Alumna).

As LA isn't exactly still normal, we're suggest visiting Palm Springs nearby for the weekend or when you have some free time. We've been covering Desert X, the outdoor art exhibits that are only up until May, for a while now. We're showing a few more off. It's fun to get away from it all and find these different art exhibits scattered around Coachella.
Don't forget how the official Desert X shirt leads you to the Pacific Ocean.
March 12–May 16, 2021 at sites across the Coachella Valley.
