Karina Longworth’s ‘You Must Remember This’ Podcast Marks 10 Years With Egyptian Screening Series (EXCLUSIVE)

Hollywood’s Egyptian Theatre will host a special screening series to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the podcast “You Must Remember This,” created and hosted by Karina Longworth.

Longworth has now spent a decade examining the untold histories of show business — including watercooler seasons spent revisiting the Manson murders, the Star Wars franchise and the life and career of Joan Crawford. The Egyptian, owned by Netflix, has curated a three-day screening series featuring the films of Hollywood bombshell Kim Novak.

Novak was the subject of the “lost” and first-ever recorded episode of “You Must Remember This.” Longworth has previously said a corrupted audio file and “large swaths” of copyrighted music led to the shelving of the episode, which will finally be released [Editor’s note: In the TV series that launched and catapulted Ryan Murphy to stardom, “Popular,” a fictional girl’s room at a Southern California high school was named for Novak after a donation from the star. We love remembering her this way]. 

The screening series will kick off April 1 with showings of “Bell, Book and Candle” starring Novak and Jimmy Stewart, as well as a 35mm print of “Kiss Me Stupid” starring Novak and Dean Martin. All-day showings of Alfred Hitchcock’s “Vertigo” are set for April 2.  The run will conclude with a showing of Novak’s 1955 film “Picnic” on April 4, followed by a conversation with Longworth and moderator Patton Oswalt. Tickets are currently on sale.

Netflix also recently reopened the Paris Theater, New York City’s longest-running arthouse cinema and the last remaining single-screen cinema in Manhattan, after technical upgrades.
