LAUREL & HARDY in

BABES IN TOYLAND

(AKA: March of the Wooden Soldiers)

 

Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy are endearing in this musical fairy tale about two workers in a toy factory who need to help their landlady - the old lady who lives in a shoe. 

 

It’s great family fare. 

 

This is one holiday masterpiece you can bring the kids to and it’s likely to become as much of a holiday tradition for you as it is for us!

Based on the stories of Booth Tarkington, this musical depicts the 1910s in a nostalgic way.  It’s a kindler, gentler America.

Mae West in

I'M NO ANGEL

1933 • Mae West

 

I'm No Angel was released when Mae West was the nation's biggest box office attraction and most controversial star.

 

Being pre-code, the film was not subject to heavy censorship.

 

Depression era audiences loved this story of a woman rising from the wrong side of the tracks. 

 

A young Cary Grant plays her leading man!

1944 • Fred MacMurray, Barbara Stanwyck

 

Double Indemnity sets the standard for Hollywood film noir. It was adapted from James M. Cain's novel and written by Raymond Chandler and the film’s iconic director Billy Wilder.

 

MacMurray’s performance is supreme, and the music is from none other than Miklós Rózsa.

BLOOD AND SAND

1922 (silent) • Rudolph Valentino
• Accompanied live on the Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ •

 

 

Blood and Sand was a box office smash.

 

It helped establish Valentino as a star and was one of the most successful films of his career.

 

In 1923 he recorded “El Relicario" from Blood and Sand for Brunswick Records.

 

Valentino was voted the 32nd Greatest Movie Star of all time by Entertainment Weekly.

Charlie Chaplin

MODERN TIMES

1936 • Charlie Chaplin, Paulette Goddard

 

 

 

Modern Times is one of the cleverest, funniest, and most important films ever made. 

 

Chaplin’s iconic “Tramp” character struggles to survive in the modern, industrialized world, with the help of a young homeless woman. 

 

For anyone into comedy or cinema, it's one of those films you can see again and again and again.

FEBRUARY 17 - 18

THE GAY DIVORCEE

1934 • Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers

 

 

 

At the depth of the Depression, this sort of film was all the rage - a fantasy of carefree opulence and ease, set in a world of floorshows, ocean liners and tuxedos.

 

The wit is sharp and the mood flirtatious.

 

Fred Astaire is as always the height of style and Ginger Rogers is gorgeous.

 

Sure it's a bit silly, but truth be told: this film is pure joy to watch.

TITANIC

1953 • Clifton Webb, Barbara Stanwyck, Robert Wagner

 

 

 

Winner of three Academy Awards, this 1953 version of Titanic boasts stellar performances by Clifton Webb and Barbara Stanwyck.

 

One of the most fateful and foreboding stories ever committed to film, this version is by far the best cinematic treatment of the epic ocean disaster of 1912.

STRIKE UP THE BAND

1940 • Mickey Rooney, Judy Garland
Directed by Busby Berkeley

Lots of energy and tons of laughs.

THE PHILADELPHIA STORY

1949 • Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, James Stewart

 

 

 

There's no question about it: The Philadelphia Story is one of the greatest romantic comedies of all time.

 

With its wonderfully witty script, spotless direction from the great George Cukor, and crisp performances from the all-star cast, it’s no wonder this film is an undisputed classic.

 

Great fun; a must see!

The One and Only BUSTER KEATON in

THE CAMERAMAN

1928 (silent) • Buster Keaton
• With Live Accompaniment on the Mighty Wurlitzer •

 

 

 

Buster Keaton was one of the great comic geniuses of the 1920s, and a prolific filmmaker.

 

For anyone who has never seen a silent movie, this film is ideal.

 

It’s a thoroughly enjoyable movie packed with hilarious gags.

 

A Keaton classic!

YOU WERE NEVER LOVELIER

1942 • Fred Astaire, Rita Hayworth

 

 

 

Romantic films like this just aren't made anymore, at least not with class and style.

 

Fred Astaire is once again paired with an attractive female partner (this time a radiant Rita Hayworth) dancing to some of the best music ever written for the screen -- from Jerome Kern.

 

It doesn’t get much better than this!

THE FILMS OF GEORGES MÉLIÈS

Hosted by Randy Haberkamp, Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences

• Accompnied Live on the Mighty Wurlitzer •

 

 

Best known for his iconic image of the rocket ship plunging into the moon’s eye, Georges Méliès was a prolific filmmaker whose turn of the century shorts were innovative in technical achievement, special effects and stop-motion tricks.

 

His films often involved surreal fantastical journeys that are considered among the most important work in cinematic science fiction. The life of Méliès was chronicled in the 2011 hit film Hugo. Join us for a tribute to the man and his legacy.
