Set your TVs to TCM Tomorrow for the First Fan Favorites Programming!
Hello everyone! Just a reminder to tune into the only television channel that really matters–Turner Classic Movies–tomorrow starting at 12:30pm EST/ 9:30pm PST for the first ever Fan Favorites programming block. TCM, ever the gracious and fan friendly network, is experimenting with allowing fans to program films, complete with interviews on the air with host Ben Mankiewicz! San Diego Horror film festival director Miguel Rodriguez is one of the people handpicked to participate!
The requested theme was the holiday season, so Miguel chose the scifi horror “The Thing from Another World!” Joining him in the Fan Favorites programming block are fellow TCM Party members Aurora Bugallo, Paula Guthat, and Joel Williams. Aurora’s Choice, the musical “Meet Me in St. Louis” will air first at 12:30/9:30 PST with her introduction, Paula’s selection Bob Hope comedy “The Lemon Drop Kid” will air at 2:30/11:30 PST, followed by Miguel’s appearance with “The Thing From Another World” at 4:15/1:15pm PST, and it will all wrap with Joel Williams and his pick, the western “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” at 6/3pm PST!
If you are wondering why Miguel picked “The Thing from Another World,” tune in to TCM to hear his conversation with Mr. Mankiewicz! You are urged to join the gang on Twitter, where each person will host a special tweetalong of their respective films, using the hashtag #TCMParty. It’s like watching the films with classic film lovers from around the globe! Let’s all show TCM how much we appreciate their excellence in fan outreach and make this a great day for everyone! Plus–movies!
See you on the internets!
