Tribute to Mal Vincent

Mal’s Movies 2022! A series of classic films in July and August hosted by friends of Mal Vincent on Monday evenings. (With repeat screenings on Tuesday afternoons without hosts.)

As you know, Mal Vincent passed away last November at the age of 83. As you also know, Mal was irreplaceable, whether as the Virginian-Pilot’s film critic for more than half a century (his annual Oscar picks were always an event), as a guest on countless local radio broadcasts, or just as a friend sharing one of his latest Hollywood exploits over the phone. It was Mal’s wish that his yearly festival of classic films at the Naro would continue, and so we have assembled a group of local celebrities and cinephiles to step in as hosts for some of Mal’s favorite films from past festivals, as well as for some he had planned to share in the future. No one can fill his shoes, but we’ll do our best to do justice to his memory and to the movies he adored.
