Wild For Wilder

KiMo jumps right back into the film scene on Wednesday, April 10, with the latest in the New Mexico Film Series ’13. This monthly collection of shot-in-our-state classics shines the spotlight on 1951’s Ace in the Hole. This fantastic film, directed by Billy Wilder (Some Like It Hot, Sunset Boulevard), stars Kirk Douglas as a down-at-the-heels newspaper man in Albuquerque who finds the story of the year when a man gets stuck in a cave out by Gallup. Naturally he starts milking the drama for all it’s worth. This is really one of the best, most overlooked films shot in the Land of Enchantment and features tons of mid-century New Mexico sightseeing. The film starts at 7 p.m. and is free to the public.
