Doris Duke Days Around the Corner

September 23, 2010 at 12:15 pm 1 comment

The inaugural Doris Duke Days, a 3-day film celebration at the Jane Pickens Theater fêteing the late heiress’s myriad interests, kicks off Friday and continues through Sunday. A blend of old favorites, insightful documentaries, local interest and new films, even a mockumentary (Best in Show), there’s something for just about everyone. Locals will especially appreciate Old House Soul, documentary examines the life and work of Steve Tyson Sr. (1942-2008), a Rhode Island preservationist whose company is responsible for restoring and preserving hundreds of historic buildings and houses across the state; and Jazz on Summer’s Day, set at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival.

Fashionistas and classic film cinemaphiles should mark the calendar for the unofficial pièce de résistance, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the legendary 1961 hit starring style icon Audrey Hepburn. First timers will adore and longtime fans will joyously reacquaint the tale of New York socialite Holly Golightly when she meets new tenant and struggling scribe Paul Varjak and hilarity ensues.

Tickets for Doris Duke Days are $10/each or purchase a $60 pass for all 11 films. See a full line-up by CLICKING HERE, call (401) 846-5252 for information or visit
