Get ready for a period packed with additional tournaments and grab your share!
A silver screen, also known as a silver lenticular screen, is a type of projection screen that was popular in the early years of the motion picture industry and passed into popular usage as a metonym for the cinema industry. The term silver screen comes from the actual silver (or similarly reflective aluminium) content embedded in the material that made up the screen's highly reflective surface.
Now that we know the technical background, let’s focus on the celebration. There are a lot of movies and TV series out there, which would deserve a celebration. Some of them are true gems: great stories with amazing characters that capture our imagination. Others are, however, total crap viewed from today’s perspective, but as we enjoyed them in our childhood or youth they will at least make us smile due to the memories they bring back – although the latter is unfortunately also a reminder that we are getting old…
So, without further ado, let’s celebrate these anniversaries with tournaments that will pay $600 GTD each!

**Silver Screen Roadmap:
Sunday, September 15th – American Beauty (release date: September 15th, 1999):
American Beauty is a 1999 American drama written by Alan Ball and directed by Sam Mendes in his directorial debut. Kevin Spacey stars as Lester Burnham, an advertising executive who has a midlife crisis when he becomes infatuated with his teenage daughter's best friend, played by Mena Suvari. Annette Bening stars as Lester's materialistic wife, Carolyn, and Thora Birch plays their insecure daughter, Jane. Academics have described the film as a satire of American middle-class notions of beauty and personal satisfaction.
Monday, September 16th – Timecop (release date: September 16th, 1994):
Timecop is a 1994 American science fiction action film directed by Peter Hyams and starring Jean-Claude Van Damme as Max Walker, a police officer in 1994 and later a U.S. Federal agent in 2004 after time-travel has been made possible. It also stars Ron Silver as a rogue politician and Mia Sara as Melissa Walker, the agent's wife. The story follows an interconnected web of episodes in the agent's life as he fights time-travel crime and investigates the politician's plans. Timecop remains Van Damme's highest-grossing film as a lead actor, becoming a cult classic with fans, and it is generally regarded as one of Van Damme's better films by critics.
Wednesday, September 18th – The Informant! (release date: September 18th, 2009):
The Informant! is a 2009 American biographical-comedy-crime film directed by Steven Soderbergh. Written by Scott Z. Burns, the film stars Matt Damon as the titular informant named Mark Whitacre, as well as Scott Bakula, Joel McHale and Melanie Lynskey. It depicts Whitacre's involvement as a whistle blower in the lysine price-fixing conspiracy of the mid-1990s as described in the 2000 non-fiction book The Informant, by journalist Kurt Eichenwald. The movie received generally positive reviews from critics, with praise directed towards Matt Damon's performance and the film's comedic yet ironic tone, although the latter has also been a point of derision by other critics.
