Come visit us every Friday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. for the showing of a great classic movie.
In December, we’d like you to join us to watch some of our favorite Christmas movies.
On Friday, December 4th, we’ll be showing Laurel and Hardy in MARCH OF THE WOODEN SOLDIERS. Laurel and Hardy live in a shoe, along with Mother Peep and many other children. The mortgage on the shoe is owned by the villainous Silas Barnaby, who is looking to marry Bo Peep. Knowing the Widow Peep is having a difficult time paying the mortgage, Barnaby offers the old woman an ultimatum – unless Bo Peep agrees to marry him he will foreclose on the shoe. Widow Peep refuses, but is worried about where she’ll get the money to pay the mortgage.
On December 11th, come see Charles Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL. This film stars Reginald Owen as Ebenezer Scrooge, the miser’s miser who has a huge change of heart after spirits whisk him into the past, present, and future.
And, finally, on Friday, December 18th, all are invited to see Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye in Irving Berlin’s WHITE CHRISTMAS. Our stars, two talented song-and-dance men, team up with a sister act and travel to Vermont for a white Christmas. But the real adventure starts when Crosby and Kaye discover that the inn is run by their old army general who’s now in financial trouble. And the result is the stuff dreams are made of.
In January, film noir masterpieces will be featured.
On Friday, January 8th, Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall will ignite the screen in THE BIG SLEEP, an adaptation of Raymond Chandler’s detective novel. When private investigator Philip Marlowe (Bogart) accepts the blackmail case of one of Los Angeles’ wealthiest men, his probe leads deep into a web of lies, drugs, pornography and murder woven around his client’s two beautiful daughters. But Marlowe’s most startling discovery is his inexorable attraction to one of the sisters.
On Friday, January 15th, join us as Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman star in NOTORIOUS. The American daughter (Bergman) of a convicted Nazi spy is recruited by a government agent (Grant) to infiltrate a group of Germans living in Brazil after the war…but he doesn’t count on their lives becoming so intimately entangled.
Come see Gloria Swanson, as Norma Desmond, an aging silent-film queen, and William Holden, as a struggling young screenwriter who is held enthralled by her madness in SUNSET BOULEVARD on Friday, January 22nd.
And for our final film noir masterpiece, on January 29th, we’ll show DOUBLE INDEMNITY, which is about a married woman (Barbara Stanwyck) who conspires with a smitten insurance agent (Fred MacMurray) to plan the perfect murder of her husband.
We hope to see you every Friday!
