The Maltese Falcon is a classic film noir with an incredible cast led by Humphrey Bogart, and was the directorial debut of John Huston.

FOR ME AND MY GAL

 1942 • Judy Garland, Gene Kelly

 

 

For Me and My Gal is a movie about a song and dance team in the "good ol’ days of Vaudeville". Gene Kelly’s smashing screen debut alone makes this film a must see. But then there’s the chemistry he has with 20-year-old Judy Garland -- truly exceptional.  This may be Garland’s most endearing role -- beautiful, sweet and vivacious.

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 dance numbers -- and they’re good!  This is one entertaining funny flick, with scenes such as Groucho trying to run a sanitarium.  It’s classic Marx Brothers!

They don't make 'em like this anymore - and on the big screen, they will blow you away. Boop-oop-a-Doop and vodeo-oh-doh!

STORMY WEATHER

1943 • Lena Horne, Bill Robinson, Cab Calloway

 

 

A major Hollywood musical with an African-American cast, made by 20th Century Fox at a time when black performers rarely had leading roles – especially in musicals. It’s loosely based on the life and times of its star Bill Robinson, although it’s fictionalized.  Other notable performers who appear in the film are Cab Calloway and Fats Waller (both appearing as themselves) and the Nicholas Brothers dancing duo.   This film is both groundbreaking and entertaining!

Friday 8:15pm, Saturday 2:30pm and 8:15pm

FOLLOW THE FLEET

1936 • Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers

 

 

This is the fifth film featuring the superstar duo of Astaire and Rogers, with a score by Irving Berlin – what more could anyone want?!  Astaire plays a Navy sailor trying to re-capture a romantic spark while on leave in San Francisco.  Memorable songs, impressive dances, boat loads of fun!

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.

NOTHING SACRED 

1937 • Carole Lombard, Fredric March

• With special guest speaker William Wellman Jr. •

 

 

The teaming of Fredric March as the star, William Wellman as the director, and David O. Selznick as producer was the perfect recipe for creating one of the best screwball comedies of the 1930s, and it was the same team who had created A Star is Born the year before.  It’s great, sharp, hilarious fun!

HOUDINI

1953 • Tony Curtis, Janet Leigh

 

 

Tony Curtis is great in his portrayal of magician Harry Houdini.  Although the film isn’t 100% accurate in the details of Houdini’s life, it’s thoroughly enjoyable thanks to the performances of Curtis and his co-star Janet Leigh, who were a real-life married couple at the time the film was produced.
