1952 film “The White Sheik” will be screening at Chandler on March 20.

Sunday, March 20 at 6:30 p.m. — RANDOLPH — The Chandler Film Society’s March film is “The White Sheik” by Federico Fellini. After co-directing “Variety Lights” in 1950, Fellini took on his first solo directing project with “The White Sheik” in 1952. The story involves Ivan and Wanda, a couple from the provinces who have a honeymoon in Rome. But Wanda, dreaming of the dashing hero of a photo-strip cartoon, drifts off in search of her beloved White Sheik, and winds up taken to a remote photo shoot. The style and themes which made Federico Fellini world famous are already apparent in this charming comedy, featuring such long-time collaborators as his wife, actress Giulietta Masina, and composer Nino Rota.

Sponsorship of films has resulted in a more secure budget for the year. Please feel free to suggest films to sponsor for next season, which would also help to know what films people would like to see.

Films show at 6:30 p.m. in Chandler’s Esther Mesh room, but come early for light snacks (popcorn!) and beverages, and stay for Rick Winston’s informative commentary. Tickets are $9 at the door, $5 for members and students (K-12 and VTC). Season memberships are available for $25 for an individual; $45 for a couple.

Chandler Center for the Arts is located at 71-73 Main Street, Randolph.
