40 years ago: Weekend offers cinematic, live entertainment

May 4, 2013


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for May 4, 1973:

  • Local movie fans had a choice of several offerings this week in Lawrence theaters. Franco Zeffirelli's "Brother Sun, Sister Moon" was opening at the Varsity, while the Granada was showing "The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean." At the Hillcrest's three theaters, film-goers could see "The Cheerleaders," "The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie," or "Class of '44," while fans of the Sunset Drive-In (and rats) could see the double feature of "Willard" and "Ben." Those who preferred live entertainment could buy a ticket to Aaron Copeland's "The Tender Land" at the University Theatre in Murphy Hall. For people who just wanted to make a night of it at home, television programs tonight included "Adam-12," "Sonny and Cher," and "Medical Center."
  • Gerard Piel, publisher of "Scientific American" magazine since 1947, was scheduled to speak at the Kansas University department of chemistry awards ceremony this coming weekend. The luncheon in the Big Eight Room of the Kansas Union was to be followed by Piel's talk, "What Limits to Growth?"
