The Norton Herrick Center for Motion Picture Studies at the University of Miami School of Communication invites you to see A Hole in the Head, in which Frank Sinatra plays a widower struggling to hold on to his small Miami hotel as he is overtaken by luxury towers such as the Fontainebleau and the Eden Roc. Directed by Frank Capra and co-starring Edward G. Robinson, Thelma Ritter, and Keenen Wynn, A Hole in the Head bridges classical Hollywood into new cinematic frontiers. A fascinating look at mid-century Miami at the height of the "hotel wars," this movie considers the past and future of the American Dream. The event is part of "Screening Miami ? Film Projections of South Florida Over Time," a new film and discussion series that explores the movie image of South Florida at specific historical points, from the 1940s to the present day. 7 p.m. film screening with introduction by Dr. Gaspar Gonzalez, 6 p.m. reception, will take place Thursday, Oct. 11, at the Bill Cosford Cinema at the University of Miami, 1111 Memorial Dr., Coral Gables. Free and open to the public.
