Is PW sure about that third paragraph? I.e., the four films to be shown in 2019? All four of those films ("American in Paris", et. al.) were already screened at the Bankhead earlier THIS year. I doubt they would be rerunning all of them again so soon. If anything, I would expect LVPAC to screen a different set of four films next year. (????)
