Inside the Mind of Robin Williams

Robin Williams2

By David Johanssen

Robin Williams once said,” Every person is driven by some deep, deep, deep, deep secret.” How could a man who made so many others so happy be battling such a profound sadness? We delve into the life and struggles of Robin Williams this week at Shelter with the presentation of a new documentary, Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind. It’s a funny, intimate, and heartbreaking portrait of one of the world’s most beloved and inventive comedians, told largely through Williams’s own words. It celebrates what he brought to comedy and to the culture at large, from the wild days of late-1970s LA to his death in 2014. The LA Times calls it “a poignant portrait of a comic giant and his vulnerability.”

Saturday, August 4, at 6pm: The Beach Boys 50th Anniversary. During the summer of 2012, one of pop-rock’ s most enduring bands, The Beach Boys, reunited for what was reported at the time to be one final tour. Concerts featured original members Brian Wilson, Mike Love, and Al Jardine singing the band’s most enduring hits. The filmed concert features songs taken from a number of performances on that tour, including, “I Get Around,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “Good Vibrations,” “Kokomo,” and “Help Me, Rhonda.”

Friday, August 3, at 6pm: Saturday Night Fever. With this film, John Travolta graduated from minor celebrity to an overnight superstar. Travolta plays Tony Manero, a working-class guy in Brooklyn, in real life a peasant, but on the disco dance floor he’s the king! Time Out magazine says, “Not many movies are genuine cultural phenomena… Saturday Night Fever is, without doubt, the most memorable.”

Friday, August 10, at 6pm: Bell Book and Candle. The film version of John Van Druten’s comedy stars James Stewart and Kim Novak. Novak plays Gillian Holroyd, a bona fide witch. Falling in love with publisher Sheperd Henderson, Gillian casts a spell on him, obliging him to dump his fiancée. The New Yorker says, “Novak makes bewitching impression… a charming bit of whimsy.”
