THE THIN MAN

1934 • William Powell, Myrna Loy

 

 

 

In what may be the first “comedy detective” film, William Powell and Myrna Loy star as a classy & sassy husband and wife detective team.

 

They’re one of the most entertaining couples ever to appear in films.

LOVE ME TONIGHT

1932 • Jeanette MacDonald, Maurice Chevalier

 

 

 

With music and lyrics by Rodgers and Hart, and a terrific performance from Jeanette MacDonald, Love Me Tonight is a timeless musical comedy. The pre-code screenplay is filled with witty social satire.  Often called a musical masterpiece, this film is truly one of the greats and deserves to be seen much more often on the big screen.

CITY LIGHTS

1931 • Charlie Chaplin

 

 

 

Featuring Charlie Chaplin’s iconic “Tramp” character, City Lights is Chaplin’s most critically acclaimed and financially successful film. 

 

Beneath all the comedy is one of cinema’s most profoundly moving romantic stories. To this day, City Lights is considered one of the greatest films of all time. 

 

Presented with a score composed by Chaplin himself, this film is most certainly not to be missed.

MURDER, MY SWEET

1944 • Dick Powell

 

Murder, My Sweet is a film noir masterpiece starring Dick Powell, who was known for musicals and comedies.

But he gives a remarkable performance as Philip Marlowe in this RKO adaptation of a Raymond Chandler novel.

It’s dark, evocative cinema that exemplifies the noir hardboiled detective genre.

Beautifully filmed and directed!

With Live Accompaniment on the
Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ

 

Come see the legendary Rudolph Valentino in the film that propelled him into superstardom and defined his career.

The Sheik is engrained in film history, and is essential viewing for anyone who loves movies.

ROAD TO UTOPIA

1945 • Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Dorothy Lamour

 

 

Bob Hope and Bing Crosby made film history with their seven “road pictures”.

Road to Utopia is perhaps the best of the bunch.

It’s an enjoyable, fast-paced musical romp, complete with sight gags, talking animals, and endless hilarity.

SCIENCE FICTION FILM FESTIVAL

• All Weekend •


We’ve got FOUR sci-fi flicks of the 1950s: the “classic era” of sci-fi cinema.
These were usually low budget films, targeted at teens, yet surprisingly successful for the studios with common themes like fear of nuclear weapons, alien invasion, and science experiments gone awry.
Join us on our trip to the 1950s! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Friday 8:15 pm

TARANTULA • 1954

In the Arizona desert, a spider escapes from a lab and grows to gigantic proportions to terrorize the town. This 1950s B-film is a lot of fun, and even includes a quick, un-credited appearance by Clint Eastwood.  They don’t make ‘em like this anymore.

 

 

Saturday 2:30 pm

IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE • 1953

Story by Ray Bradbury

A spaceship crashes in the Arizona desert, and an amateur stargazer and a schoolteacher suspect alien influence when the local townsfolk begin to behave strangely. Ray Bradbury brings some solid concepts, such as to question our readiness to meet other-worldly civilizations. 

 

 

 

Saturday 8:15 pm

PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE

1959 • Bela Lugosi, Vampira

In this cult classic directed by Ed Wood, aliens intend to stop humanity from creating a deadly bomb by resurrecting corpses so zombies and vampires will warn the world to pay attention. Sound good? This film achieved its iconic status for being so incredibly bad that it’s actually a blast to watch.  It's often labeled “the worst film ever made” but it’s unintentionally hilarious and has certainly earned its unique place in cinema history.

 

 

 

 

Sunday 2:30 pm

THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN • 1957

Almost 60 years after its release, this film still packs a punch.  With a smartly written screenplay by Richard Matheson (who wrote for The Twilight Zone with Rod Serling) and great direction by Jack Arnold, it’s easy to overlook the dated visual effects.  Beneath the surface is a brilliant philosophical journey, with an ending that will surprise you.

SHOW BOAT

1936 • Irene Dunne, Alan Jones

 

Despite her mother's objections, the naive young daughter of a Mississippi show boat captain is thrust into the limelight as the company's new leading lady.

With expert direction from James Whale, this 1936 version of Show Boat is one to see.

And of course, Paul Robeson's extraordinary performance of "Ol' Man River" is the highlight of the film.

SAN FRANCISCO

1936 • Clark Gable, Jeanette MacDonald, Spencer Tracy

 

Alongside Gone With the Wind, MGM's San Francisco is the finest romantic drama to emerge from Hollywood in the 1930s.

 

It has everything going for it: a magnificent story and script, a superb star in Clark Gable, the superb voice of Jeanette MacDonald, and an earthquake sequence that you’ll never forget.

42nd STREET

1933 • Ruby Keeler, Dick Powell, Ginger Rogers

 

Broadway star Ruby Keeler’s film debut, 42nd Street single handedly helped rescue the movie musical in Hollywood.

For some years prior, musicals were considered a bad investment for studios.

But 42nd Street was so financially successful that it saved Warner Bros. from bankruptcy.

A DAY AT THE RACES

1937 • The Marx Brothers

 

 

"Either he's dead or my watch has stopped” is just one of the witty lines from the iconic comedy brothers. And with all the zany, manic comedy, we get a few song and dances numbers -- and they’re good!

This is an entertaining funny flick, with scenes such as Groucho trying to run a sanitarium. It’s classic Marx Brothers!
