Cinematic legend and San Antonio native Marcia Nasatir will be back in her hometown for a week of events, including two special screenings. Nasatir, who is now 92 years old, became the first female vice president of a major Hollywood studio (United Artists) in 1974. In that role, she green-lighted the Academy Award-winning films One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975), Rocky (1976) and Apocalypse Now (1979). In 1983, she produced the dramedy The Big Chill. On October 4, the Santikos Bijou (5pm at 4522 Fredericksburg Road) will host a free screening of The Big Chill followed by a Q&A with Nasatir. Then on October 7, Nasatir will join local movie fans at Alamo Beer for a special free screening of the documentary A Classy Broad as part of the San Antonio Film Festival’s Broads & Brews film series. Written and directed by Anne Goursaud, A Classy Broad tells the story of how a young Jewish girl from San Antonio made her way to Hollywood to work with some of the biggest stars in the industry, including Meryl Streep, Jack Nicholson and Marlon Brando.
